On December 21, Uri Geller’s birthday, Uri spent 1,020 pounds (about $2,020) on spoons at an auction at the Savoy Hotel in London. He won three lots, each containing approximately 50 spoons with an estimate of 50-70 pounds.
Geller said “I’m 61 today. That’s why I’m treating myself.” He bent and signed a number of other spoons for admirers during the evening. “They fetch three thousand pounds on EBay,” he said.
One of the spoons he bought at the Savoy will be incorporated in the cutlery-encrusted bodywork of the 1976 Cadillac he keeps at his house in Berkshire. The rest will be auctioned for children’s charities, said Geller.
