Contents of Michael Jackson's home up for auction 

Monday December 12, 2011

Michael Jackson fans have had a first look at items that will be sold at auction from the singer's home.

Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills opened its doors to Jackson fans, who brought flowers, gifts and handwritten notes for the singer's children.

The company recreated the North Carolwood Drive home, where the king of pop died in 2009, inside its exhibit space.

Items for sale include the Victorian baby grand piano, the wooden armoire where Michael wrote a note to himself on the mirror, the kitchen chalkboard where his children inscribed the message, "I love daddy".

Darren Julien, president of Julien's Auctions, said he sought permission from the Jackson estate to include fans in the auction exhibit, and family matriarch Katherine Jackson requested that he deliver any hand-made items from fans to her.

Julien's Auctions sold the contents of Jackson's Neverland Ranch in April 2009.

The company also sold Jackson's Thriller jacket for $1.8 million over the summer and his signature-spangled glove for $350,000 in 2009.
