It’s not often that we see something as odd as a celebrity staircase up for auction on eBay. Indeed, Celine Dion’s golden spiral staircase can be yours — but it wasn’t ripped out of her home. This is essentially a glorified prop that was used during her tenure at Ceasar’s Palace in Las Vegas from 2003-2007. The listing says “this particular model is unique in that it was designed and fabricated as per Celine Dion’s specifications.” Apparently, total cost for the conception, steel fabrication and mechanical movement of the stairs was over $25K.

Proceeds from the auction, which ends today at 9PM EST, will benefit The Fondation des Gouverneurs de l’Espoir — a charity helping kids and their family affected by cancer, throughout a wide variety of activities. The highest current bid is just over $10K — but you can expect the shipping costs on something weighing 4,500 pounds to add to this.

Still, nothing like installing this on your roof and climbing to the top to sing your best rendition of “My Heart Will Go On”. To place a bid, jump here.
