According to CNN on Sunday, the Michael Jackson house memorabilia sale was held at Julien’s Auctions, where his “Thriller” jacket was sold for $1.8 million last June. None of the items belong to him.

As noted in the report, the auction include furnishings from the mansion at 100 North Carolwood, California, where the singer stayed while preparing for his supposed comeback concert in London, “This Is It” in 2009.

The Michael Jackson auction included furniture, artwork and other items which were earlier estimated to be sold for $200,000 to $400,000, such as the kitchen chalkboard where the Jackson children wrote ‘I love daddy,’ which sold for $5,000.

The headboard from the bed where Jackson died at age 50 was not included upon his family’s request, but the rug that was beneath the bed sold for $15,360, which was earlier estimated to hit $400 to $600.

Another highlight of the Michael Jackson auction includes a mirror where he wrote a message to himself, “Train, perfection March April Full out May” using a wax pencil, which was sold for $25,750.
