Oprah’s yard sale Saturday in Santa Barbara has brought in $600,000 (so far) for charity, reports People. The talk-show queen decided to also declutter her homes in Hawaii, Illinois (Chicago) and Indiana, selling off furniture, art, and antiques to benefit her girls’ leadership academy in South Africa. Seems everyone wanted a piece of Oprah: Sales for even the most mundane offerings far exceeded the estimates — $100 teapot went for $1,000, a “TV Guide” cover photo (valued at $200 to $400) fetched $3,000. A final tally is expected will be released Monday.
