**Yard Sale Alert** ~ Fancy Things Oprah is Auctioning From Her Apartment

OPR030113OHome013_2.jpg

Oprah is auctioning off a bunch of things from her Water Tower condo in Chicago, which she listed for $7.75M early last year and eventually took off the market. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will auction off exactly 571 of Oprah’s fancy fancy sundries, including English, French, and Continental furniture, lots of porcelain and crystal things, and some clothing and accessories (whether worn by Oprah is right now unspecified). Currently, we know what 14 of those items are. Also, where they stand in our completely objective Oprah-auction ranking system.

Proceeds will support The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, which supports the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls, which supports the official unofficial Oprah mission to take over the world. Just kidding! (Sort of.)

Earlier this month Oprah announced that this year she would be closing Harpo Studios, where The Oprah Winfrey Show was filmed, meaning it’s a hard month for Oprah—she’s losing her studio and her flora danica soup tureen.

Without further ado.
