Several items that once belonged to Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern who had an affair with then President Bill Clinton, are among the 32 items being sold at the Nate D. Sanders auction house.
The auction lot also includes items that were submitted by Andy Bleiler, Lewinsky’s high school drama instructor, to Kenneth Starr, who led Clinton's impeachment investigation.
"Items owned by Monica Lewinsky, especially relating to the Clinton scandal and Ken Starr investigation are exceedingly rare," auctioneer Nate D. Sanders said in a statement, cited by Reuters. "This is, to my knowledge, the only collection of this nature to come to light."
The items on sale are extensive and include a black negligee belonging to Lewinsky, letters and photos signed by Clinton, and personal letters that Lewinsky wrote to Bleiler, with whom she was having an affair at the same time she was involved with Clinton.
Lewinsky's infamous blue dress is not among the items that are on sale. Several items that are now being auctioned off were given to Bleiler and his wife by Lewinsky in the early 1990s.

These items were returned to the Bleilers after the investigation closed, and now have been put up for auction by Bleiler’s ex-wife, Kate, according to Yahoo.
Online bidding for the lot will end on Thursday, and the items are expected to fetch somewhere between $25,000 and $50,000, according to Reuters. But, as of Wednesday, only five people had placed their bids and the highest price quoted was $6,490.
