$99 NOW $49.50Rue's Vintage Beaded Necklace
We don’t know where Rue got this necklace. She visited many reservations over the years and used to purchase a lot of Native American arts and crafts, so perhaps that was where she got it. Or, one of her little nieces could have made it for her. We really have no clue, but it sure is cute, and well made whoever did it. The necklace measures 25″ long and the little medallion is 1.75″ x .5″. Rue’s beaded necklace comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Flying Pig Bar Soap Holder
Rue loved pigs. Thus, it makes sense that she would have a flying pig as her bar soap holder. We actually don’t think this piece was made for that purpose because the base is made of a light wood and has NOT done well getting wet every single day (you can see it is kind of lumpy now). However, a soap holder is what Rue used the piece for; it sat next to her kitchen sink offering up various bars of scented soaps to those who wanted to wash their hands for many, many years. Rue’s flying pig stands 7″ tall and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Rue's Personal Playbills From Jimmy Shine (With Piece of Her First Night Bouquet)
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.
$225 NOW $112.50Rue's Juicer
Rue owned four juicers – the girl liked fresh juice! She was always blending up something with fresh ingredients and droplets of this or that homeopathic something or another – potions, really. However, she did NOT like the cleanup involved with the other three juicers she owned. Of all of them, this was the most user friendly. You literally snap up the little silver lip that the fresh juice pours out of and the entire thing comes apart. All the pieces are dishwasher safe, too. Rue’s SMART juicer comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Whistle From "Annie" (And Dog Rescue!)
Rue played Miss Hannigan in a production of “Annie,” and she absolutely loved playing the part. Her character was a child-hating alcoholic who runs an orphanage, so what isn’t to love? Anyway, one of the accessories her character used to keep the kids in line was a whistle, and this is one of two that Rue used when she played the part. The whistle also played a role in rescuing a dog when Rue ran out into the street to slow cars down to protect the stray – see “New York Times” blurb posted. Rue’s whistle from “Annie” – and her hero dog rescuing activities – comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
