I want this table!

Oprah may have had a difficult time in trying to ditch her spacious 56th floor Water Tower Place unit, but the media mogul is now unloading the contents of the 9,600 square foot pad to raise funds for her education foundation; South African girls school.

Oprah will be auctioning off 571 lots in a big one day event on April 25. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers  announced the sale, which will be conducted at its Chicago salesroom.

“People love Oprah,” Hindman said. “There’s something for everyone. There’s things that are $100 and things up to $100,000.”

Slowly but surely, Oprah has been cutting ties with Chicago over the last few years, selling two other units along Lake Shore Drive, a farm in Indiana and her Harpo Studios campus in the West Loop.

Oprah also recently announced that she plans on shutting down Harpo’s Chicago operations for good.

If you plan on attending Oprah’s ginormous garage sale, be sure to bring a pile of cash as many of the items being sold are valuable antiques and artwork.
