Chatsworth House and Sotheby’s are teaming up in October for what The Luxist is calling “the world’s most luxurious yard sale.” Chatsworth House has been home to the Cavendash Family (historically comprised of Dukes, Duchesses and the occasional Earl) since 1549.

Admittedly most of what I know about the Cavendash Family was gleaned from Kiera Knightley’s impressive performance as Georgina in the sleeper hit The Duchess but, O-M-G.

From the source: “The treasures on offer include art, architectural elements, furniture, ceramics, glass, silver, and other items – even an antique motorcar – with estimates ranging from £20 to £300,000, or about $30 to $450,000. The several million dollars which the sale is expected to generate will go towards upkeep on the famed estate, which has 126 rooms – including a bathroom with murals painted by Lucian Freud – and sits on over 30,000 acres.” H O L L A D O L L A xo heather
