Oprah Winfrey is hosting a gigantic auction to get rid of stuff ranging from five autographed electric bikes to over-sized framed portraits of herself.

The TV icon is calling it the “biggest yard sale ever” and hopes her old stuff will garner lots of money for the nonprofit Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation College Fund.

The auction, scheduled for Nov. 2 at the Santa Barbra Polo and Racquet Club, boasts items from Oprah’s many residences, including those in Hawaii and Chicago.

Interested buyers can bid on 29 pages worth of items (yes, Oprah produced a catalog for her yard sale).

The yard sale, aka The Oprah Winfrey Collection auction, is being handled by Kaminski Auctions. Can’t make it to California? Don’t worry – you can bid online.
