5 Cool Items Oprah Winfrey Is Auctioning Off, Because You Know You Want To Get Your Hands On Oprah's Crap
If you happen to live in Chicago and have a couple extra million dollars lying around somewhere, you might have a chance to snatch up Oprah Winfrey's stuff during an auction. Winfrey is moving her Chicago-based Harpo Studios to the fancy new OWN headquarters in West Hollywood, and she's auctioning off her personal belongings before she goes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Winfrey is looking to unload about 500 items from her Water Tower Palace condo with an auction on April 25 conducted by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. Auctions: garage sales for rich people!
According to founder Leslie Hindman,
Our firm has enormous respect for Ms. Winfrey and all that she has accomplished and achieved, and we are privileged to handle the sale of property from her Chicago residence. Oprah’s acumen as a media icon and businesswoman has been an inspiration for millions. Perhaps even more inspiring is her dedication to altruistic endeavors, built on the foundation of sharing her success to better the lives of others.
Proceeds will benefit Oprah's Leadership Academy Foundation, which supports the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.
The auction will include "English, French and Continental furniture and decorative pieces, paintings, prints, drawings, porcelain, crystal, silver, memorabilia, clothing and accessories," People reports.
