Dawn Wells, the actress who played Mary Ann on TV's "Gilligan's Island," plans to cast away the contents of her eastern Idaho home at an auction on Saturday.

The 71-year-old native Idahoan has kept a home in the Driggs area for about 15 years and now lives near Palm Springs, Calif.

Wells will sign autographs at the auction for anyone who buys something.

Items up for bid include a Kenmore double-door refrigerator, antique Chinese rug, a picture frame cutter made in Denmark and memorabilia from the annual Spud Fest Family Film and Television Festival.

Wells served as executive director of the film festival in Driggs.
