Oprah Raises Big Money for Charity With Auction

If you ever wanted a piece of Oprah, you had your chance over the weekend.

The mogul auctioned off her personal collection of art, antiques, furniture and memorabilia on Saturday -- and fans couldn't fork over their cash fast enough.

According to the L.A. Times the auction was met with "exuberance," as a 16-by-20-inch print of a TV Guide cover photo featuring the talk-show host had a pre-auction estimate of $200 to $400 but ended up selling for $3,000. A set of six 18th century Louis XVI armchairs with hand-embroidered details sold for $60,000.

The proceeds from the auction will go to Oprah's girls leadership academy in South Africa.
