Want to Buy Jane Austen's Hair?

The Guardian reports Jane Austen's hair is up for auction. The hair is contained in a locket, and "the strands of hair are woven into the shape of a weeping willow. The hair is also used for the lettering on a decorated gravestone on which the name Jane Austen appears." This seems a bit morbid to me.
