If filling your abode with cootie-covered furnishings and tableware from a hotel sounds as unsavory to you as it does to us, hold that thought: Goods from the Hotel Bel-Air are up for sale, and the cooties you end up with might have belonged to Robert De Niro, Elizabeth Taylor or Carrie Grant.

That's as close to royal germs as you'll get in L.A., so let's just call it patina. The hotel is undergoing a two-year renovation and all furniture, decorations and accoutrements must go to make way for new stuff.

People have been lining up at a Santa Monica storefront this week to get their hands on $825 chandeliers and $2 steak knives, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The sale at a former Circuit City store at 1251 4th Street happens from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. until everything is sold out.
