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.

It was Mrs. Hart’s first red carpet since giving birth to the couple’s first child, Kenzo Kash, just three weeks ago. To say it was a snapback is an understatement. The 30-year-old, who worked out during her entire pregnancy, look sexy and svelt in a elegant black number while her superstar hubby hit the carpet in a black suit with white trim.

Although the couple faced some bumps in the road earlier this year with Kev being extorted over a video showing him cheating on his wife, the couple has bounced back. And on Tuesday night’s jungle-themed red carpet Hart told HipHollywood, “My wife is just an amazing woman … I would not be me right now without that woman in my life.”

You can see Kev, alongside Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and more, when “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle” hits theaters on December 20th.
