Oprah's yard sale brings in over $600K

By Cassie Alsup. CREATED Nov 4, 2013

Oprah's yard sale brought in the big bucks for charity! The TV icon reported over $600K in sales from selling her own belongings yard-sale-style at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club over the weekend.

She sold art, furniture, and antiques from her homes in Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Santa Barbara and "La Quinta" estate, and all proceeds benefited her girls' leadership academy in South Africa.

Fans were so stoked to buy some of Oprah's belongings that they paid way over what many items were worth. One customer paid over $3000 for an autographed copy of TV Guide with Oprah on the front that was valued at only a couple hundred dollars.
