Featured ItemsRue's "Magnolia" Tunic
Here is another piece Rue owned that was made by her dear friend Grace Martin. Rue had to alter the piece slightly by sewing the center, cleavage-closing fabric into the bodice after a wardrobe malfunction left her…ahem….exposed. The silk is gorgeous. The piece is kind of a one-size-fits-all tunic and there is a label sewn in that reads: “It’s A Magnolia by Grace Martin.” Rue’s print silk tunic comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Zebra Shirt
We have no idea who “Jess & Jane” are – the makers of this shirt of Rue’s – but we do know we would love them. How could you not love people who do a crystal studded shirt that honors zebras? Rue’s shirt comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225 NOW $112.50Cheap 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!
$14.14Where Are We Going In Rue's Handbasket?
Rue actually used her hand basket as a hand basket, who does that? She would carry it into her garden and come back inside with the basket full of tomatoes she picked off her plants. Rue’s hand basket measures 12″ x 9″ and it is 10.5″ high. The piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225 NOW $112.50Rue's Large Painted Canvas Pillow
This is another fabulous piece that came from the renovation of Rue’s Encino, California home – when she was spending money like a Rockefeller! Do you know she actually spent over $1,000,000 on her yard alone! And this was almost 30-years ago (Oh, Rue!). Anyway, she did pick up some really amazing possessions during those crazy years, and this 19″, hand-painted canvas pillow is one of them. The piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Original 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.
