Fans will have fun spotting some of the more iconic items from unforgettable TV moments -- such the Stetson cowboy hat she wore in 2009 during an episode of Oprah and Gayle's New Adventure: The Biggest State Fair in America.

Oprah told eBay she was cleaning out her closet for Spring. “Over time and with the new season, your taste tends to change,” she said.
My taste has evolved from intense color, embellishments and heels
“My taste has evolved from intense color, embellishments and heels to flats and a more subdued color palette. What I’m giving away will be put to good use by someone else.”
Proceeds from the sale will benefit The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation, supporting the education and development of a new generation of women leaders in South Africa.
