Ever think you'd find Oprah's bag in a yard sale?

A LOUIS Vuitton handbag with a street value of more than $3650 is not the normal kind of item you would expect to find at a garage sale.

Add to it the fact that the bag once belonged to the world's most recognised talk show host, Oprah Winfrey, and you could reasonably expect to add a couple of zeroes at the end of the price tag.

But the bag is just one of many items that will be up for sale at Beerwah's Great Garage Sale this Saturday, with all funds going to help the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital. Included in offerings for the day will be some pre-loved hand-me-downs from the Irwin family.

Bindi has donated the yellow polo-shirt she wore when singing with the Crocmen in April 2006, only five months before her famous father, Steve, died.

Her Little Pony collection and Bratz plane will also be added to the mix.

Robert, 10, has donated his train set and table for the garage sale.

The family has also given away several digital cameras.

Oprah's Louis Vuitton bag was not only much loved, but she has even signed it.

Stalls are available at the garage sale for just $30.

Beerwah's Great Garage Sale will run on Saturday from 8-11am.
