About Us
Vintage Jewelry, Apparel, Purses, Fashion, Home Décor, Collectibles and everything She loves is what you will find at Clara’s Chic Boutique-Vintage. Often rare, designer treasures, unusual, beautiful designs of times past! Enjoy this eclectic collection – You will surely find a treasure here!

This is how I make it all possible:

Proverbs 31:29-31
“Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Encouraged by loved ones to open a shop at Ruby Lane to share and explore my God given passions, I am very excited to be a member of the Ruby Lane family of shops! I have 26 years of experience as a dealer in auctions, on Ruby Plaza and currently on Etsy and eCrater. My shops remain with 100% customer satisfaction ratings. I plan to deliver the same high level of satisfaction to my customers here at Ruby Lane.

As I continue to build my online reputation here at Ruby Lane I would love to have you contact me regarding your shopping experience with Clara’s Chic Boutique-Vintage by calling or emailing me at Email Shop. All inquiries are ever welcoming. If ever you have any concerns you can expect immediate consideration of your inquiry. I plan to be ever evolving, so please visit often. Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your time in the boutique!

Here’s a little secret…Clara is my Mother and I am honoring my Grandmother by using her beautiful name for the shop. My silly Mother goes by her middle name, Sue; she doesn't love it like we do!

Testimonials from Previous Customers:


Satisfied Ruby Lane Patrons...Thank you you all for your kind words regarding Clara's Chic Boutique


*8/5/14
I would like to let everyone to know that Clara's Chic Boutique is a wonderful shop. I swear I barely paid for my item and it was at my door. It's even better than I imagined, the price was extremely reasonable, and communication the best. Ruby Lane should be very proud to have a shop like this on their site.

Dear Penni,
I received my beautiful brooch Friday and wanted to thank you so very much for the excellent packing and super quick shipping. I am collecting jewelry in remembrance of my 101 year old grandmother, to be passed on to my daughter as a family heirloom. I have the necklace and earrings, the brooch is a fabulous find and I absolutely love it!

*The great necklace and earring set arrived in perfect condition.
You packed them beautifully--even the earrings wrapped
individually. Thanks for the great buying experience. I'm
wearing them today. Happy Holidays!

-P.
