Oprah Winfrey's Out-of-This World Yardsale
Selling hundreds of personal possessions she has accumulated over the past 30 years, the legendary Oprah Winfrey set up an epic yardsale, taking up three tents on the polo grounds in Santa Barbara, CA. She got rid of treasures and trinkets from her homes in Hawaii, Indiana and California at a giant sale Saturday (November 2).
"I've been accumulating things since 1985," the 59-year-old told Entertainment Tonight. "It's just too much stuff. I talk about it a lot in [O] the magazine. We talk about decluttering. And I realized, I need to declutter my own life. It is very freeing. I am downsizing."
There has also been a great deal of speculation about the former talk show host's doll collection. She commented on it, saying, "People come to stay with me, and they say they get scared with all the dolls. You wake up, and there's like 12 dolls staring at you."
It's never easy to be rid of items that you have always had, and this Oprah knows. "I'm trying not to be attached to things," she said. "I'm trying to live the life that I talk about, like not letting things define you. But it's hard."
