Oprah Raises $600,000 For Charity in “Everything Must Go” Garage Sale

Oprah is known as the Queen of Talk, but she’s also known for her philanthropic activities. She’s previously given out scholarships to Morehouse Oprah_yard_salemen and donated money through her Angel Network, but this time she decided to part with items from her own home in order to raise money for charity.

On Saturday Winfrey sold personal items during a mega garage sale at her home, raising $600,000 for charity. Among the items sold were furniture, framed prints, and other other furnishings from her home. Specific items up for sale included a Victorian-style doll carriage starting at $100 and an 18th-century Louis XVI Leonard Boudin bureau estimated to be worth $50,000.

Winfrey mentioned in her magazine that she was renovating her luxurious mansion to reflect her true style.

“The gilded mirrors, marble urns, the lavish carpets and sherbet palette — it was all very grand, but it wasn’t very true to myself,” she wrote.

Many of the wealthy bidders didn’t mind paying more for Oprah’s items than they were worth because it all went to a good cause.

“It’s just too much stuff. I talk about it a lot in O magazine. We talk about decluttering. And I realized, I need to declutter my own life. It is very freeing. I am downsizing,” said Winfrey when asked about the mega yard sale.

Oprah continued: “I’m trying not to be attached to things. I’m trying to live the life that I talk about, like not letting things define you. But it’s hard.”
