I saw no true designer clothes for sale that she would of paid alot of money for.
How many people who come from a family of billionaires have gargage sales? Don't compare apples to oranges.

dont be so quick to ASSume. If someone wants to put up a garage sale, who really cares how much there supposed wealth is worth? Its there perogative.

Inside Tori Spelling's Yard Sale

FRIDAY DECEMBER 08,

At about 6:30 a.m. on Friday morning, nearly 60 people began lining up in front of Tori Spelling's modest home in Studio City, Calif., for her yard sale in hopes of finding a piece of Donna Martin to take home for their own.

Unfortunately those Beverly Hills, 90210 fans were a bit disappointed as the majority of the memorabilia included signed scripts (for $100) and signed photos of Tori and cast members (various prices).

Fans of Shabby Chic-style furniture and fine silver, however, were having a field day. Spelling looked around as strangers went through every drawer, closest, and armoire inside her house, items like a pair of silver cigarette dishes ($50), Tiffany silver serving platter ($2,800) and silver gravy boat and coaster ($45) were being snapped up quickly. And despite reports, Spelling wasn't manning the cash box. This was an organized estate sale done with the help and staff of Sharon Yost Estate Sales.

Spelling – dressed in jeans and a green-and-white maternity top – told PEOPLE that it wasn't that tough parting with her memories. "I had to break away from the past and be ready to start anew," she said. "It's out with the old, in with the new."

A lot that "old" includes a large armoire filled with dozens of wedding items from her brief marriage to writer-actor Charlie Shanian, such as napkins that say "Tori & Charlie," the PEOPLE magazine cover of her wedding, homemade CDs of her wedding music, wedding books, her framed wedding flowers and more.

Other items up for grabs ranged from a used Sephora lip gloss for $1, her dog Mimi La Rue's shampoo for $20, a used pair of Marc Jacobs round-toe shoes for $125 (the customer talked them down to $100) and a pair of white aged Grecian urns for $7,500.

With a handful of news crews, several print reporters on hand, a Channel 11 news helicopter, and her own documentary crew for her upcoming Oxygen reality show, the five-months-pregnant Spelling didn't quite seem at ease. "This is a little weird, but I'm okay," she told PEOPLE. Spelling is also doing well with her pregnancy, "I feel good. No weird cravings. People always ask me that, but I haven't had any."

TV style expert Steven Cojocaru blurted out at one point, "Is this for charity? Or does it go to Tori?" A worker for the estate replied, "It's for Tori." Indeed, Spelling told PEOPLE on Thursday of the reason for the sale: "I'm having the sale because we're moving and my taste has changed. Plus I'm a notorious pack rat; I keep everything."

Husband Dean McDermott left right before the first 20 customers were let in at 8 a.m. and then returned to the house a little before noon.

So, how did the buyers react to the celebrity yard sale? Reactions ranged from "She looks nervous" to "She's glowing" to "This stuff is expensive!" The sale continues Saturday morning.

Maybe also part of a ploy along with being photographed shopping at a dollar store to show she is somewhat financially strapped(in Hollywood celebrity terms!)as a way to get more money that her father left her mother? Although, I thought she emphasized she lived on her own money and not her parents. Hopefully, she invested her 90210 money well since her career afterwards hasn't exactly been the greatest.

I personally don' think it is fair to judge her on a different level just because of who she is and how much money she has. I read in the past before that she put up quite a huge collection of her designer stuff up for auction on ebay with proceeds going to charity. She may prefer to give in another way like volunteering her time vs giving in a material way. Just cos she comes from money, she has the right to decide what she wants to do with her stuff.

Cos of this "she is so rich thus....." mentality I feel sorry for the wealthy cos it seems as if having money mean you have to give up your right to think and feel a certain way. I give you an example of one of my friends who make alot of money and many people expect him to foot the bill on things and stuff just cos he makes XXX of money. If he doesn't some horrible friends label him cheap but I think it is so unfair cos if he has 30 friends and all 30 friends have the mentality that he should be generous with all of them just cos he makes good money, he will end up poorer than everyone.

RUMOR: Tori Spelling is having a boy?

In Touch is reporting that actress Tori Spelling is expecting a baby boy with her husband, actor Dean McDermott. A friend says, "She's overjoyed that she's having a boy." The couple found out the sex in mid-November, but have not shared it publically.
Tori's due date in is March. If she does in fact have a boy, the former 90210 star has said she would love to honor her late father, TV super producer Aaron Spelling, and give her son his name for a middle name.

I like to think that someone with an even greater need for funds than Tori will snap up that used lip gloss and resell it on eBay to someone whose bank balance and admiration for the wealthy actress are higher than their hygiene standards.

I read that she only got $800,000.00 from her father. But that she was doing good from the money she got paid for VH1's NoTORIous. And her husband made $75,000 an episode or for a movie.

i completely agree don't judge people because of their background. I think she reserves the right to be like any normal person to have a garage sales to get rid of things she doesnt need, get some money and yea move on with her life.

I mean come on, give the girl a break. So what she is a star and doing this may seem so called 'classless' to some people but umm I think she deserves to like any normal person. She has been through alot of drama with her family life and it nice to see her happy and bit open to the public.

Good for her!

Rich people have yard sales all the time! There is nothing wrong with that. I've been to quite a few yard sales in Beverly Hills myself and got some GREAT stuff!

I was in LA this past summer and stopped in Brentwood at a yard sale. We picked up some wonderful, like new DVDs for a dollar each!

People LOVE yard sales. Many don't understand that it's a culture. There are some people like myself and my hubby who are "hunters". We love seeing what other people have to offer and we love a bargain as well!

did anyone in PF go to her yard sale?
I didn't go but I would have if I was in LA at the time and knew about it! And not because it was Tory Spellings stuff, necessarily. But because I love yard sales and WHO KNOWS what I would have found?!?! Fun!:yahoo:
