Featured ItemsPersonalize Signed 8" x 10" Memoir Cover Shot - "To Joseph" [SOLD]
Why Rue never sent this personalized, signed photograph to whoever this Joseph was, we’ll never know. Perhaps she didn’t like the signature, but she never threw it out. We found this in her desk. Certainly there is a Joseph out there that you know, or perhaps you are one yourself, who is a Rue McClanahan fan. This is very likely the only way you’ll ever get an original, personalized, signed picture of Rue. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$99Rue Made Faux Fur Hat
Rue made this hat using a fluffy faux fur. The piece is lined with what appears to be off-white flannel. It is a fun piece that requires a certain character to pull off. Most of us look like a Cossack when we put it on, or like we ought to be leading a marching band, but somehow Rue always looked regal in the piece, like Joan Collins, and that is a talent! Rue’s fluffy faux fur hat comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225 NOW $112.50Rue's Black And Gold Caftan
Oh, please don’t think that Rue McClanahan suffered from dandruff when you look at the shoulders of her black caftan, because it is absolutely not true, those white specks are actually plaster dust. You see, since we had already rented the space for Rue’s café, and since they hadn’t started on construction yet, we decided to use the space for this quarter’s photo shoots. Well, Julio, Rue’s handyman, was doing some core samples under the existing drywall in the space to see what was underneath – by the way, he found MARBLE SLABS(!) – anyway, when he dug into the plasterboard, a cloud of plaster dust settled on everything. Rue’s black and gold caftan was made by “Santé Classics,” it is a size “L,” it will be dusted before we send it to you, and it will come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275 NOW $137.50Original Photographs Given To Rue By Brad Davis From "Midnight Express"
Rue adored the late actor Brad Davis, and from all accounts the feeling was mutual. Rue and Mr. Davis did theatre together in New York City in the ’70s, and then Mr. Davis lived at Rue’s home when he first moved out to California. Not only did Rue love him personally, but she considered him one of the finest young actors of his generation. Brad Davis starred in the powerful movie “Midnight Express” – if you haven’t seen it, we highly recommend you stop reading this and add it to your Netflix queue immediately! – and he gifted Rue these original stills from the production. The photographs measure 10″ x 6-6.75″. We are including an original 4.5″ x 3.5″ snapshot from Rue’s personal photo collection of the two of them and others at the Cannes Film Festival in 1978. We’ll also include prints of the two photos of Rue and Brad showing them on stage together in New York City and in Rue’s garden in California. This mini photo collection will appear on one Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$650 NOW $325Rue's Nuts and Beads Necklace
What a bizarre necklace, right? The bead part makes sense, but the nuts? We can just imagine Rue’s delight when she discovered the piece, too; Rue adored the unusual. This strand of 1.5mm beads and 5mm nuts is 32″ long and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225 NOW $112.50Window Valance and/or Scarf [SOLD]
Rue wore this as a scarf and kept it in the closet with her scarves, and yet when we were measuring it (2′ x a rather lengthy 10′) we couldn’t help but wonder if it was a swag window valance that she had yanked down and wore, just like Scarlet O’Hare in that one movie. So, we’re offering it as a combo Window Valance/Scarf and we’ll send it along with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
