Featured ItemsRue's Personal Playbills From Jimmy Shine (With Piece of Her First Night Bouquet) [On Hold]
Although Rue was an understudy in a couple of Broadway Shows before “Jimmy Shine,” this was the show in which she made her Broadway debut – she finally walked out onto a Broadway stage and performed. This was a pivotal role in her career and it personally validated the path she had chosen. The star of the show was none other than Mr. Dustin Hoffman, and Rue told us that since “The Graduate” had recently come out in theaters all over the world, there was a mob of screaming girls waiting for Mr. Hoffman after each performance – we actually found an image on the Internet! Although Rue saved Playbills from every show she was ever in, the Playbills from her Broadway debut held a place of particular importance in her heart. If you look at the photo taken of Rue from the night she first took the stage, you can see her holding one of these Playbills and a bouquet of red roses. Rue pressed a rose from that bouquet between the pages of that Playbill and over 45-years later we found a piece of the stem still inside. Isn’t that cool? Rue’s original Playbills from “Jimmy Shine will come with that piece of stem and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.

$175Three Antique Glass Bottles From Rue's Collection [On Hold]
You’ve got to love “The Piso Company” – the company that put out the green bottle in this assemblage of three antique bottles from Rue’s collection. This company was selling a cannibis extract to cure what ailed you. (See photo we found showing bottles with the original paper labels.) Since this is essentially liquid marijuana, cure you it certainly did! Rue loved all forms of quackery and loved the stories of potions and flim-flam that went along with the bottles in her collection. These three bottles will appear on one Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Rue's Amazing Work-Of-Art Necklace [On Hold]
This necklace is nothing short of a work-of-art! The piece was custom made for Rue by a Florida designer who made Rue’s jewelry for the series “Safe Harbor.” The necklace has many different beads, balls, crystals, turquoise pieces, and metal thingamabobs. Rue’s work-of-art necklace measures 26″ long and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Cheap Plastic Heart from a 1985 Hallmark Valentine's Day Card (With a Surprise!) [SOLD]
Rue hung onto this cheap plastic heart for over 25 years! It came inside of a Hallmark Valentine’s Day card and survived in her jewelry box from 1985 until her death in 2010. Here is the surprise. We were looking through old pictures and found a shot of her from Valentine’s Day in 1985 and look what is stuck on her sleeve. Can you believe it? We actually have a photograph of her wearing this thing! We’ll send this item with a 4″ x 6″ print of the picture and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue. This has to be the deal of the century!
$14.14Blanche's Taupe Leather Mules [SOLD]
Can’t you just hear Blanche click-clacking across the kitchen floor? Rue wore these taupe leather strap mules during multiple seasons of “The Golden Girls,” and you can spot them in multiple episodes within those seasons. They are made by a company called “Onex” and we think they are about a size 8, since that was what she usually took in a mule. Since these were such favorites, they are definitely a little scuffed up, and the insoles have clear wear from Rue’s heels and toes. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
