Oprah Winfrey’s “biggest yard sale ever” was a huge success … But then again, who wouldn’t want to own something of Oprah’s?

On Saturday, the mogul hosted a ginormous “yard sale” at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club and raised nearly $600,000. The auction consisted of the star’s personal collection of art, antiques, furniture and memorabilia from her homes in Indiana, Chicago, Hawaii, Santa Barbara and her “La Quinta” estate.

“Had so much fun at the auction which is still going on,” the OWN founder tweeted on Saturday evening.

According to the LA Times, a set of six 18th century Louis XVI armchairs with hand-embroidered details was the top selling item, with a bid of $60,000. Two canvas banners promoting the actress in The Color Purple had winning bids of $4,100 and $6,000, while a pair of crystal lamp bases (no shades) sold for $2,500.

According to the publication, even items worth close to $100 sold for near thousands. A teapot,which was worth less than $100 sold for $1,000, and the bids for a chair that a fan painted for Oprah which estimated at $100-$200, also rose to $1,000.

Proceeds will go to Winfrey’s girls leadership academy in South Africa.
