For as long as I can remember, I've been drawn to objects which were used (and loved) by earlier generations. So, it's not surprising that I ended up training as an archaeologist. After years spent studying artifacts of the ancient Mediterranean, I received a beautiful Masons Belvedere prunus jar from my mother and thus began my journey into the world of 18th-20th century porcelain, china and pottery. I believe that in our busy and sometimes stressful lives, it is important to take the time to remember and appreciate traditions and treasures of past generations and to make the time to collect special memories (and traditions) of our own.

Collecting Memories is a bit like having my own, ever-changing museum! So here you are...beautiful items at reasonable prices. Enjoy browsing in my shop and exploring my links into the history and traditions of earlier periods. I add new items to my shop regularly and am constantly on the lookout for interesting web sites, so please check my shop and "My Favorite Links" often. And please email me with any questions or advice! Thanks for visiting my shop and please stop by again when you're traveling through Ruby Lane...

Lay-Away Plan Now Available upon approval.





Basic terms: for purchase totals between $100-$499, I generally set up the plan for 3 equal payments over a three-month period - but am certainly willing to consider a modified plan. For purchase totals over $500, I prefer 25% deposit and the balance paid within six months in equal, monthly installments. If a payment is late (more than 10 days), there is a $10 late fee. If the sale is canceled at some point, all monies will be refunded minus a restocking fee of 10% (of the purchase price).



** Antique & Vintage Postcards, Tradecards & Valentines **


Discounts on postcard, tradecard, and other paper ephemera purchases. Terms do not apply during storewide sales and special promotions.

Free First Class Shipping to U.S. locations on multiple item paper/postcard orders or paper/postcard orders over $25. Please ask about shipping discounts to other locations.

There is a 10% discount off the listed price for all postcard orders from $75 to $150; for orders over $150 there is a 15% discount. Any 'groupings' of cards which I have listed as a single item, will count as 1 card.
