BRIGHTON (WWJ) - A little less prairie and a more of a little house?

The child star of "Little House on the Prairie" Melissa Gilbert and her actor-husband, Timothy Busfield, are leaving the Great Lakes state for the Big Apple.

Why should you care?

They're having an estate sale and you're invited. 

Poof! Estate Services will be handling the sale -- and you could say they weren't exactly star-struck when they met the actors -- actually, they didn't recognize who they were. 

"It was just a phone call and we went out ... leaving the estate I realized who she was," says co-owner Allison Ruby. 

She says her parents and other relatives knew exactly who they were. "But I never really watched the show. I checked it out a little bit and read her Blog ... I thought (the show) was great. I enjoyed it." 

The estate sale listing boosts the Brighton home of Gilbert/Busfield as "filled to the brim with tons of great stuff! With everything in working order and in great condition ..." they're sure you'll leave with something you love. 

Ruby along with co-owners Peggy Ruby, and Rebecca Durand will be updating the listing online to include more detailed information about the items to be sold. 

The sale takes place on Friday and Saturday, July 27-28. Find details [HERE].

A shuttle will be in service.
