Oprah worshipers and bargain hunters unite. The former Chicagoan and daytime talk diva is auctioning off hundreds of her possessions to raise money for a college scholarship fund for students at The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, the South African school she founded.
The auction includes everything from an 18th century carved wooden wardrobe (estimated price $5,000-7,000), embroidered throw pillows ($200-400) and fireplace tools ($200-300). For the diehard Oprah fans, there are plenty of pictures of the lady herself, including an enlarged, autographed version of a 1998 Vogue cover ($1,000-2,000) and a photo of her with fellow uber-famous Chicagoan, Michael Jordan ($200-400).
There are also items available from others, including some from fitness guru and Oprah’s personal trainer, Bob Greene. Want his marble sink ($1,000-1,500) or his dumbbell rack ($200-400)? Well, you’re in luck.
The items come from Oprah’s many homes, including her apartment in Chicago. You can browse the full auction catalogue here.The auction will take place Nov. 2 in Carpinteria, CA. But you can register to bid online, too.
