Chat show queen Oprah Winfrey is auctioning personal items from her various residences for charity. The collectables include signed poster prints from her movies, a marble bathtub and a doll.
The 59-year-old is hoping to raise funds for her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation College Fund, which benefits graduates of her school for girls in Africa as they try to get into universities around the world.
She is planning to sell collectables from her homes from all over the United States, including residences in Chicago, California, Indiana and Hawaii, reports contactmusic.com.
Among the items up for auction are poster prints from her hit 1985 film "The Color Purple", which the 59-year-old star has autographed, electric bikes, several paintings, a children's doll and even a British-inspired post box.
The items will be sold by Karminski auction house Nov 2.
