Oprah made $600,000 this past weekend at her yard sale.  According to The LA Times,

Oprah’s teapot sold for $1000. Other items that sold big were a set of six 18th-century Louis XVI armchairs with hand-embroidered details for $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 go for $200-$400, went instead for $2,500 and two 13-ft. long sofas, upholstered in crushed velvet with roped fringe, collectively brought in $8,750.

Even Oprah herself was surprised at how much things were going for.
