Michael Jackson's belongings from his home on Carrolwood Drive were auctioned off and sold for close to $1 million. Julien's Auctions headed the efforts over the weekend.

The items included an armoire with a note from Jackson scribbled on the wood finish, and it sold for $25,750. Also up for sale ... a slatted wood shower bench and a rooster chalkboard. The rug that was beneath Jackson's bed sold for over $15K.

The pre-auction estimates predicted that the revenue would be between $200 - $400K. Looks like the $1 million earned exceeded their expectations.

Jackson died on June 25, 2009.
