Black lionhead rabbitAs a bonus, you will be able to go behind the scenes and watch estate liquidators prepare a home for an estate sale!

Never before have the liquidators done an estate like this one, and the little lives on the property have changed the owners.

City Homestead got its start because of the Secret Haven estate sale.

This journal begins with an estate sale being conducted by Estate Freedom,

Another Bonus!
