  • Of course, Oprah’s yard sale was a big success!

    The media mogul raised $600,000 from auctioning off her personal collection of art, antiques, furniture and memorabilia from her Hawaii, Indiana and California homes. According to Los Angeles Times, fans spent top dollar for O’s old around-the-house items, including $1000 for a teapot.

    Other overpriced, in-demand “bargins” included:

    • A set of six 18th-century Louis XVI armchairs with hand-embroidered details netted $60,000

    • An enlarged print of a TV Guide photo of the TV host, with a $200-$400 estimate, went for $3,000

    • Crystal lamp bases (described as “simple”), expected to fetch $200-$400, went instead for $2,500
