British rocker Pete Doherty has set up a shop in London to sell off his personal items and memorabilia from his bands Babyshambles and The Libertines. The singer is working as a sales assistant in the store, which has opened in the U.K. capital's Camden area. Doherty & Martin: The Rag & Bone Collection is filled with a collection of bizarre items including the butts of cigarettes smoked by famous pals including Doherty's ex-girlfriend Kate Moss and late singer Amy Winehouse. A journalist from Noisey.vice.com reports, "There's enough Libertines, Babyshambles and Doherty memorabilia in there to fill a ballroom... I asked him (Doherty) where it's all come from. He shrugged and said 'I've brought it all out of storage, these are just the things that I wanted to sell'... It sells almost nothing of worth, for prices that are extraordinary. There are cigarette butts for £100 and wrapping paper for double that." Doherty first discussed the shop with journalists from NME earlier this year (13), saying, "I've got fag (cigarette) butts that belong to Bobby Gillespie, Kate Moss and Amy Winehouse, and I've got Christmas paper that (soccer star) sent to the guy from Black Sabbath. All kinds of s**t, basically."
