A Bee of a Sale: An auction of belongings of the late Francis Bavier, better known as Aunt Bee on the popular “Andy Griffith Show,” stirred up a fuss at her Raleigh, N.C., home Saturday. Everything offered for sale, from the actress’s yellowed contracts to her guacamole-green Studebaker Daytona with 43,000 miles, rotting tires and a ceramic donkey on the dashboard were snapped up by fans. A sofa was auctioned for $1,400 and a Queen Anne dining table with six chairs went for $1,800. One fan bought Bavier’s rake for $45.
