Featured ItemsRue's $1.69 Notebook That We Have Priced at $2,500 (WHAT!?)
We found this old notebook in a stack of Rue’s papers at the bottom of one of her file cabinets in the home office of her Manhattan apartment. The first thing we noticed is the coffee splatter marks on the cover and that let us know it was DEFINITELY Rue McClanahan’s! Before the old notebook hit the trashcan someone opened it up and just look at what was discovered – it is a treasure chest with over half a dozen of Rue’s “doodles” inside. If we had to assign levels to Rue’s “doodles” we’d have to say this notebook has a couple minor ones, a couple more that are pretty good examples of her work, and three that are unquestionably MAJOR! All the “doodles” are worthy of framing, even some of the little sketches in pencil, but that will be up to you. We were going to break the thing up and do the framing ourselves, but we decided to keep the piece intact, just as we found it. Rue’s “doodle” notebook comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$2,500 NOW $1,250Rue's Boxed Set of Quotation Books
Rue read a lot of biographies and autobiographies. She had a passion for the life stories of America’s founding fathers and early statesmen. Rue was patriotic and found the commitment to the vision for America held by those early politicians inspiring. This boxed set has four thin volumes and they contain some of the most well-known and inspirational quotes from four of those early Americans. Each volume has one of Rue’s bookplates inside, so there are four different stickers. The case and books measure about 4.5″ x 7″ and they will all appear on one Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Amazing Bronze And Pink Quartz Creation
Now this is what jewelry is meant to be! Just look at this vintage, one-of-a-kind piece of Rue’s; isn’t it amazing? We’re calling those links that make up the chain “bones” and each one is about 2″ long, so the whole piece is 24″. The huge center medallion creation is 4″ x 2″ and a full inch thick. We think that is a big polished chunk of pink quartz in the center. Rue’s substantial, unique necklace comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$750 NOW $375Rue's Origami Dollar Bill Ring
Rue didn’t need diamonds to make her happy. When a gentleman folded her this origami dollar bill ring she was thrilled. It remained in her jewelry box – among the diamonds, emeralds, rubies and other “fine jewelry” – for the rest of her life. Rue’s origami dollar bill ring is a size 7.5 and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.

Rue’s little pink Depression Era glass bowl measures 4.75″ across and is 1.5″ high. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Rue's Restaurant Souvenir With Polaroid
Here is one of those wonderful little souvenir cards that many restaurants used to offer, but are very rare these days. The “World Famous Turkish Kitchen” shot a Polaroid of Rue and her then sixth husband when they came in for dinner one night. Rue looks fabulous in the photo, and we think she is wearing an outfit from “The Golden Girls!” The Polaroid measures 3.5″ x 4.25″ and the whole card is 4.5″ x 6.25″. Rue’s “Turkish Kitchen” memento comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
