Oprah Winfrey is auctioning lots of goodies from one of her massive homes! Her 23,000 square foot estate, that she has named “The Promised Land,” is located in Montecito, California and it is due for a major remodel. According to the L.A. Times, Oprah was motivated by designer Rose Tarlow who told her that her “this house has nothing to do with you.”
So, she has turned to Kaminski Auctions and on November 2nd they are auctioning 574 items including furniture, art, dolls, bikes, lighting, and so much more. I guess you could say she is getting rid of some things that are no longer her favorite things! I took a look at all the offerings and selected a few of my favorites.
This 19th Century English sea captain’s lap desk is estimated to sell for between $700- $1,200. You can see it here.
Looking for some library steps? Why not buy Oprah’s? The antique pine steps should go for between $1,000-$2,000. Take a look here.
This antique bench has a lift top seat for storage and would make a great addition to someone’s mudroom or foyer. Plus, you’d get to say that it’s from Oprah’s home! It should go for between $500-$800. Check it out here.
This antique steamer truck has so much character. They’re estimating it will go for between $300-$500. Check it out!
This French Art Deco Style bar is made from mahogany and cast aluminum and is valued at between $4,000-$6,000. See it closer here.
My husband has a small collection of antique radios, and I’d think it’s really cool if we had one of Oprah’s radios. I like the one on the left.
There is lots of interesting art, much of it signed and numbered. This one is called “Block Party” and it’s estimated to sell for between $300-$500.
There is also lot of Oprah art. And by that I mean art and prints of the woman herself. Where else could you get an Oprah painting? See for yourself! It’s estimated that someone will pay between $250-$300 for this art!
I also found it interesting that there is a lot of workout equipment and machinery! Much of it is listed as property of Bob Greene, her trainer. I wonder if she has completely stopped working out? This dumbbell rack is fairly priced at $200-$400!
And finally, my favorite thing is the Japanese Tea House, this structure is approximately 14 feet x 14 feet and it could be yours! I want this is my backyard! It’s estimated at $10,000-$15,000. I have a feeling this will pull in a lot more cash. It’s super cool! Take a look!
