Oprah's favorite things for sale

You've probably driven by a yard sale without giving it a second look. But a yard sale by Oprah Winfrey is a different story.

Hundreds of the celebrity's personal items can be yours, from furniture to fine art.

For months, whispers have been going around that Oprah's prized possessions would soon be on sale, and now the official list is out.

From fancy antiques estimated as high as $50,000 to chairs as low as $100, Oprah is reportedly making sure to keep the prices low to make sure all her fans can have a seat.

"Oprah is selling lower priced items because she wants to get more people involved. She has such a stay-at-home mom viewership who don't necessarily have money to afford thousands of dollars she wants to be able to give them the ability to buy her items," said 20th Century Decorative Arts expert  Reyne Hirsch.

Star power can bump up the price. In 2011, Michael Jackson's rug estimated around $500 was sold for $15,360 during an auction for the King of Pop's belongings.  

Now, a bold checkered green couch may not match the typical living room. However, with Oprah's name behind it, it could go for thousands.

"On any given day the couch would probably go for $3, $4, $500. But because it was from Oprah's house, I am willing to guess $1,000-$2,000, maybe even a little more," said Hirsch.

Not only is Oprah giving her fans a chance to own some of her favorite things, it is all for a good cause. She is raising money for the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation College Fund, which help girls in Africa attend college.
