We knew that Oprah would be paring down her 23,000-square-foot mansion in Montecito, California this fall and the time has finally come.
The media mogul has been busy promoting the auction of items from her residences in Chicago, Maui, Indiana and Santa Barbara, which is slated to take place Saturday, November 2 at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club.
Among the personal effects that she says just don't quite represent her personal style: Hand-wrought iron panels that adorned the home’s main staircase (valued at $4,000 to $7,000), a collection of English George Smith upholstered furniture (including those famous green-and-white plaid couches) and a coveted Louis XVI chest stamped by the maker “Boudin,” which is expected to fetch between $30,000 and $50,000.
A preview of the items began Wednesday for ticket-holders, but Oprah gave the rest us a peek at what's up for grabs in the photo she posted yesterday on Twitter:
