After Betty White’s death late last year, her legions of fans around the world have been honoring her memory by donating to animal rescue organizations and, of course, watching “Golden Girls” reruns. In September, fans of the late actress will have a unique opportunity to score treasured items from her estate… and there will be plenty of one-of-a-kind items from her most beloved TV role up for grabs.

PEOPLE reports that the three-day auction will begin on Sept. 23, offering up more than 1,500 lots from her personal collection. Hosted by Julien’s Auctions, fans can bid on items in person in Beverly Hills and online, though starting bids on the most coveted items are sure to be pricey — the auction has an estimated total of between $1 million and $2 million worth of goods.

As for what you’ll find in the auction, PEOPLE notes there will be awards, scripts, wardrobe, and memorabilia from her iconic shows and films, as well as furnishings, artwork, fine jewelry (including her beloved gold-leaf and diamond wedding band), household, and personal items from her homes in Brentwood and Carmel, California. Los Angeles Magazine notes you’ll be able to get the sunshine yellow-painted front door from her longtime Brentwood residence, complete with vintage brass cat door knocker.

“Golden Girls” fans will be able to snag the original director’s chair with “BETTY” written on it, as well as signed first-draft scripts from the series pilot and finale episode. Art lovers will be able to get a large decorative needlepoint of exotic birds and butterflies that White made herself, along with a photograph of White working on the needlepoint.

Of course, even if you don’t have thousands of bucks to drop on Betty White memorabilia, donating funds or supplies to your local animal rescue is always a solid way to honor her lifelong commitment to animal safety.
