Ok, so maybe you can’t plunk down $3.5 million for this pile of bricks (and anyway, the sale is already pending). But you can own some of the stuff that made it special if you keep an eye on Everything But The House’s 650-piece estate sale.

We’ve rounded up a few especially good finds, and we threw in some curve balls for those of you looking to class up your own li’l Downton Abbeys.

1. Own a piece of Cincinnati (recent) history.
