Even Oprah has a GARAGE SALE!

On Saturday November 2, 2013, Oprah had what many are considering the BIGGEST Garage Sale EVER!  Well I know many people will take offense at that because we ALL think we have the biggest and best sale.  It is said that Oprah’s sale raised $600,000 for her schools in Africa.  Ok, that IS a BIG garage sale.  Actually, Oprah had an auction of items that she no longer needed.  Just like many of us that decided to have a garage sale of the items we no longer need.  It has been said that Oprah had went through her many homes all over the world and decided what she could part with for the sale.  These items were then gathered by the Kaminski Auction House.  The epic garage sale generated more money than expected.  One tea pot that was expect to get $100 got a high bid of $1,000.  WOW!  A garage sale is a wonderful way to raise money for a cause.  Thanks Oprah for making a garage sales cool and setting the bar so high.
