The auction of Willi Herren's estate raised around 8,000 euros.
About 400 bidders registered for the online auction, which ended on Friday, said the managing director of Krefeld Auctions Service West GmbH, Michael Blum.
The actor and Ballermann singer Herren died in Cologne last year at the age of 45.
One of the highest proceeds was achieved by a carnival king's coat that pop singer Jürgen Drews had given to his colleague - it went for 146 euros.
A “Willi Herren hand puppet” fetched 156 euros.
For a toiletry bag including a nose hair trimmer, the highest bid was only ten euros.
A decorated artificial fir was worth 15 euros to one bidder.
There were a number of things, however, that no one warmed to—like a pair of ankle boots with "heavy signs of wear" and a loose sole, and a damaged gingerbread heart.
Around 660 items from Herren's personal possessions were offered at the four-week auction.
The proceeds of the auction should flow into the insolvency estate of the indebted actor.
According to earlier information from the insolvency administrator, creditors have registered claims totaling around 400,000 euros in the process.
