We were all rocked by the loss last year of both Carrie Fisher and her mum, Debbie Reynolds soon after. Inevitably they left behind large estates, and the time has come for many of their treasured belongings to find new homes.
An auction comprised of three events will be held over three days between October 7 and 9. Organised by Profiles in History, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to both Debbie Reynolds’ charity The Thalians and a charity chosen by Carrie’s daughter Billie Lourd, The Jed Foundation.
Carrie’s brother (and Debbie’s son) Todd Fisher has said of the auction, “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.”
Here are a handful of highlights from the massive Star Wars memorabilia collection that’s on offer…
- Carrie Fisher’s life-size “Princess Leia” with blaster statue in a vintage wooden phone booth
- Carrie Fisher’s on-set chair embroidered “Star Wars: The Saga Continues” used on Return of the Jedi
- Star Wars novelty cereal boxes, including “Troop Loops” and “Raisin Han”
- Star Wars logo crew patch
- Chewbacca Furby
