Rolling Stones guitarist and occasional pirate Keith Richards, and his wife Patti Hansen, are not only ready to part with their Greenwich Village duplex apartment, they’re ready to part with some of their stuff too.

A selection of the couple’s possessions will be auctioned off on June 24, reports Gothamist, and all of the profits are going to charity.

The goods are being sold by Stair Galleries in Hudson, New York, and come from the duo’s “brilliantly colorful Upper East Side apartment,” according to the lot, and their Connecticut home.

Some of the highlights include a skull-emblazoned tea set, an Italian rococo giltwood console, a pair of Italian classically painted side cabinets, an English tufted leather Chesterfield sofa, an unusual Italian orange glass decanter by Paolo Venini, a set of eight Waterford crystal wine glasses and an Edwardian painted four poster bed.

Many of the items were found by Hansen at the Park Avenue Armory Antique Shows.
