Featured ItemsRue's Yardstick [On Hold]
This is one of those household items of Rue’s that has practical value. If you are anything like Rue, you will use this yardstick all the time, too. Rue used this for any of the things one uses a yardstick for; she used it to measure stuff and to draw straight edges. But mostly, Rue used this yardstick with her sewing. In particular, she used this yardstick every time she worked on that quilt she spent 32-years finishing! I remember her using it one day when she was working on the ticking, or whatever it is called along the back of the quilt, and I said something sassy and this yardstick promptly cracked me right on the top of the head – Rue! Rue’s yardstick/weapon comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$99 NOW $49.50Breast Cancer Awareness Pearl Bracelet [SOLD]
As a breast cancer survivor, Rue did a lot to help raise money for breast cancer research and treatment for the victims of this horrific disease. This freshwater pearl bracelet has a little sterling silver heart and a heart clasp. The pearls are over .5 cm wide and the bracelet is 7″ long. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$114.14Delicate Beaded Necklace [SOLD]
We believe this beaded necklace is made by the woman who Rue bought most of her beaded jewelry from, and we think that might be her with Rue in the picture. What her name is, we haven’t a clue. Anyway, this 23.5″ beaded necklace is relatively simple and delicate. It has pink and green glass beads, and then what appear to be tiny freshwater pearls or pearl-type beads and then some little gold colored balls. Rue had commented in the past that all this woman’s jewelry was quite expensive – partially because each piece was a one-of-a-kind, but also because of the fine materials she used – so we might be giving treasures away again, but we believe once in awhile a gamble with pricing is in order because the worst case scenario is: one of Rue’s fans gets a great deal on a treasure – and that isn’t a bad thing. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$49.50Rue's Carnival Glass Plate [On Hold]
We tried shooting this plate at all sorts of angles to show the iridescent quality, but you still can’t see it. When you look at this piece and move it in your hands, rainbows appear across the surface. I guess it is just something you need to see in person because it simply will not allow capture with the camera. Rue’s rainbow plate measures 7.75″ across and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$125Blanche'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.
$500Rue's Fabric Covered Hoops [On Hold]
These 2.5″ across fabric covered hoop earrings of Rue’s look to be custom made, and that leads us to believe they are from a production that we have yet to identify. The sequins and beads sewn on top have a definite handmade look to them. These are unique earrings. Rue’s fabric covered hoops come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
