The legacies of mother/daughter duo Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher live on!
Memorabilia from the actresses’ estates will be auctioned off this fall for charity. Fans will be able to bid on over 1,500 items including Star Wars memorabilia and other antiques and collectibles!
Items from the auction will include life-sized figures of Princess Leia, C-3PO and Yoda, a pair of ruby replica slippers from The Wizard of Oz owned by Debbie, Debbie’s costumes from The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Singin’ in the Rain, and Annie Get Your Gun, and Carrie’s Biedermeier-style writing desk. The auction is set to begin on September 23 at Profiles in History’s Calabasas location and online at the Profiles in History website. All proceeds will benefit The Thalians and the Jed Foundation, organizations dedicated to mental health awareness.
Carrie’s brother, Todd Fisher, said in a statement: “My mother and sister were magnificent collectors; they amassed an amazing and diverse collection in their lifetimes. 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.”
