Oprah Winfrey Home Auction

The International Celebrity to Sell Select Furnishings from Her Homes

Everyone likes to change up the look of their home every now and again. Although an interior overhaul rarely makes the papers, it does if you are Oprah Winfrey. That’s because she’s famous; she has lots of cool houses furnished with really cool stuff to be sold at an upcoming auction; and the proceeds go to benefit her nonprofit, Leadership Academy Foundation College Fund. The event will be hosted by Kaminski Auctions and will feature Continental and English antiques, light fixtures, upholstered furniture, fine art, and personal memorabilia autographed by Oprah, including original promotional material for The Color Purple. Items are available to view Wednesday, October 30-Friday, November 1, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The auction takes place Saturday, November 2, at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club (3375 Foothill Rd., Carpinteria).
