Featured ItemsRue Made Christmas Ornament with Mini-Pictures from Her Life [SOLD]
You know Rue was a big crafter, right? If she wasn’t in front of a camera, she was working on some interesting little project or another. Here is a personalized Christmas ornament she made. Fist, she took a card she’d received and made copies and glued them onto construction paper. Then, she scanned and miniaturized pictures of herself over the decades, cut them out, and glued them on like they were ornaments on a mini-tree. The result is “The Rue McClanahan Ornament,” and you won’t find this in the stores. She made a few of them, but each is different. This one has copied pictures that she’d already glued on, plus some images unique to this particular ornament. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.Rue'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 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 Fancy Schmancy Demitasse Cup and Saucer
I remember the day Rue bought an espresso machine and used this fancy cup to drink the first one she made. I also remember her tapping out the grounds and accidentally throwing out the metal cup inside the handled piece and not being able to use the machine again until we could get a new one – oh, Rue! Rue’s fancy schmancy demitasse cup measures 2″ high and 2.5″ across, and the matching leaf shaped saucer is 4″ across. Rue’s lavender cup and saucer come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Window Valance and/or Scarf [SOLD]
Rue wore this as a scarf and kept it in the closet with her scarves, and yet when we were measuring it (2′ x a rather lengthy 10′) we couldn’t help but wonder if it was a swag window valance that she had yanked down and wore, just like Scarlet O’Hare in that one movie. So, we’re offering it as a combo Window Valance/Scarf and we’ll send it along with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$99 NOW $49.50Rue's Ferragamo Slingbacks
This pair of Italian leather slingbacks were made by the gifted shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo. Rue’s Ferragamo’s are size 8, they are in excellent condition, and they come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
