No, the former talk show queen is not giving away more cars. She is technically not “giving” anything away, but she is leaving Chicago. You know whenever you move you tend to have a garage sale to get rid of the stuff you do not want to throw away or take with you. Well, Oprah being Oprah cannot just have a simple garage sale. No she needs to auction things off. We tend to have garage sales for the extra cash, but do not worry Oprah is not a greedy woman. She plans on giving all of the proceeds from her auction are going toward her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation.
The auction will be held on April 25 through Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. The Auction site states Winfrey’s sale will include items from “English, French and Continental furniture and decorative arts, paintings, prints, drawings, porcelain, crystal, silver, memorabilia, clothing and accessories.”
So what are some of the things you can buy from Oprah?
The first thing you are probably wondering, which I know I am, is what items are the cheapest? Well being Oprah, she does not shop at Pier One so the cheapest option at her auction a set of three Graduated (at least they have an education) Italian Silver Candlesticks. They range from $300 to $500. Too rich for my blood!
Naturally, my next thought was “What is the most expensive item?” Brace yourselves. The most expensive item Oprah is auctioning off is this Richard Edward Miller painting entitled The Red Scarf. This 41X44 Inch painting is set at $80,000 to $120,000 bucks! You did not read that wrong, those 0’s are correct.
I am not too shocked, it is Oprah. Of course she has expensive, fancy things. I do not think any of us normal humans will be participating in this auction but if you are curios, you can download the catalogue.
