Eight apparently wasn't enough for Willie Aames.

The star of Charles in Charge and Eight Is Enough, after filing for bankruptcy last year and whose house is in foreclosure, has been reduced to holding a garage sale at his Olathe, Kan., home to raise some scratch.

Among the items on sale Thursday were antiques, artwork, a piano, leather couches, a TV set, a mounted lion's head and other stuffed wildlife the 48-year-old had hunted, and movie memorabilia. Aames also signed autographs while a film crew recorded the event for a TV documentary about his life, reports the Kansas City Star.

After his stints on TV and a self-admitted addiction to cocaine, the former child actor became religious and visited schools in a superhero costume as "Bibleman." He moved to the Kansas City area in the 1990s, after filming a syndicated fishing show there.
