Last week, the second auction of Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé's art and housewares wrapped up. The items fetched a total of $13.22 million, or three times the estimated amount. The couple's pots and pans fetched over $22,000, while an umbrella holder estimated to fetch 300 to 500 euros went for 109,000 euros, or $163,129.40. [Reuters]
