All the Small Things (And a Lot of Big Things, Too): Why Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus Is Selling All of His Stuff at Auction

Mark Hoppus is cleaning house.

The Blink 182 singer and bassist, 45, and his wife Skye Everly, 44, are hosting a big sale of items from their home on auction site Everything But the House. Their diverse offerings, which went live on Monday morning, include everything from furniture selected by the couple’s A-list decorator Trip Haenisch, to designer clothing and, yes, a few pieces of Blink 182 memorabilia.

But why are they letting go of so many personal possessions? “We have lived in our home for nearly twelve years now and finally decided it was time to do a major remodel on the house,” Everly tells PEOPLE. “We knew we’d never find a home we loved more than ours in LA, so we decided to make some big changes we have always dreamed of doing and create a perfect home for us.” The overhaul they have planned will entirely rework the interior space, so many of their custom-made pieces will no longer fit perfectly, she explains.

A portion of the funds raised from the sale will go to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, “a place that is very important and special to us,” says Everly.

 

Among the pieces they’re parting with are a Jonathan Adler mirrored coffee table, skull place card holders and a custom skateboard dek. The hardest thing to let go of, however, is also the star of the sale: A turquoise, semicircular tufted sofa that “was the heartbeat of our living room,” says Everly. “We custom designed the couch with our interior designer based off old drawings and photos from Hollywood homes.”

A selection of high-end vintage items are another highlight. Everly is an enthusiastic flea market shopper and found the steamer trunk in the image above, now available in the sale, at Brimfield Antiques Fair.

The estate sale isn’t the Hoppus home’s first star turn. The Harold Levitt-designed property, located in Beverly Hills’ Trousdale neighborhood, was also featured in the music video for Blink 182’s Home is Such a Lonely Place. 

Shop the sale through July 26 on ebth.com.
