At this last weekend’s Comic-con event in San Diego, it was obvious that this year is the year of Women, with girls young and old dressed as their favorite hero of page and screen. Front and center was Princess Leia and Wonder Woman and little Amazonian’s in training. A Star Wars fan club also did a tribute to Carrie.
Items were displayed, that will be auctioned off beginning on September 23rd, of Carrie and Debby’s amazing collections of movie memorabilia. Princess Leia will always be royalty for Star War fans. Scroll through the link to see a sampling of what will be offered. One item drew my attention was that of a 1967 Girl Scout calendar with Debby as Scout Mom and Carrie as a scout. And then there’s Gary, her beloved pooch, and many of his gifts from fans.
Below is more information and photos about the upcoming auction. As a huge fan, it would be awesome to own a Carrie memento. How about you?
Pieces of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds’ legacy will be shared with the world.
The Profiles in History auction house announced it will be selling over 1,500 of the late mother-daughter duo’s personal items beginning on Sept. 23. A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit Reynolds’ charity, The Thalians, as well as The Jed Foundation, which Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, chose.
“My mother and sister were magnificent collectors, they amassed an amazing and diverse collection in their lifetimes,” Fisher’s brother, Todd, said in a statement. “The size and scope of their collection rivals most museums. So in keeping with my mother’s wishes we have decided to share part of their magnificent collection with all their friends and fans.”
Among the items auctioned off will be Reynolds’ replica ruby red slippers from The Wizard of Oz, as well as a life-sized statue of Princess Leia with a blaster, standing inside a phone booth.
The late great Carrie Fisher left behind a trove of eccentric items from her life and her storied Hollywood career.
“Good Morning America,” took an exclusive tour through Fisher’s Hacienda-style estate in Beverly Hills, California with her brother Todd Fisher and Profiles in History CEO Joe Maddalena to look at the unique home filled with personal treasures, memorabilia and items from the set of “Star Wars.”
Many of the items seen in her home will be hitting the auction block soon. Maddalena said the auction set for September will include much of Fisher’s and her mother Debbie Reynolds‘ personal property.
“The house is also filled with gifts from her fans,” he added.
Another item from Fisher’s collection is the chair that she used on set during the film “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.”
The collection up for auction will also include Princess Leia action figures still in their original packaging, original artwork of Fisher, movie posters and even a true-to-size bronze Yoda statue.
