PROVO, UT — A real estate auction is coming to the Provo Library this weekend, but you’re not likely to find anything listed as “spacious” or “roomy” — unless you’re Barbie and Ken, that is.

The weekend event will feature the usual dollhouse auctions, toy boutique, charity dinner and Mad Hatter Tea Party.
