About DepotDowns

It is amazing how certain memories surface when one of our senses are alerted by vintage items. It could be the dusty, musty smell of an old hat or the glimmer of gold from a money clip like your father carried…you know the one he would pull that crisp one dollar bill from and give to you for your weekly allowance.

There’s a plethora of new jewelry on the market. Thousands of shiny trinkets clamoring for your attention. Give me an old sterling silver ring or bracelet enhanced by a brilliant old amethyst or a dark black onyx stone and my decision is done. Watch your favorite actor on any of the talk shows and see what they are wearing. New? Seldom. They often sport vintage. That’s style!

Problem is finding authentic vintage on the Internet. There are just too many sites that let people sell inferior products-sites that have no moral guidelines. That’s where we differ. First of course is being a member of Ruby Lane. If we don’t live up to their fine standards, they politely ask us to take our business elsewhere. Additionally, should we end up with items that don’t meet either Ruby Lane’s or our standards, we list them on an auction site or some other venue with less stringent rules and regulations. Here, we only offer true vintage and make every effort in identifying stamps like makers’ marks or metal content are clearly displayed in related photographs.

RubyLane and DepotDowns preach satisfaction. We want you to be happy as well as confidant doing business with us. If for any reason you are not satisfied, just call us and we’ll work it out one way or another.

Thank you for shopping with DepotDowns on RubyLane…
