Oprah’s Yard Sale Nets $600,000 For Her S.A. School

WRNB 100.3 Philly


*Oprah Winfrey raised $600,000 on Saturday by unloading her old stuff in what was described as “an epic yard sale,” all for charity

According to The Angeles Times, the Oprah touch sent prices on the most mundane items skyrocketing, simply because people wanted something that was Oprah’s – including a teapot that was expected to go for $100. It went for $1000.

Other sold items, as reported by the Times:

• A set of six 18th-century Louis XVI armchairs with hand-embroidered details netted $60,000

• An enlarged print of a TV Guide photo of the TV host, with a $200-$400 estimate, went for $3,000

• Crystal lamp bases (described as “simple”), expected to fetch $200-$400, went instead for $2,500

• Two 13-ft. long sofas, upholstered in crushed velvet with roped fringe, collectively brought in $8,750
