About Us
I have bought and sold antiques and collectibles since I was very young, starting in high school... my mother was an antique dealer, and she sparked that "bug" in me at a very early age. I have always loved and appreciated old things, and historical artifacts. For years I have traveled the country looking for interesting and unique items to sell (and collect, of course!). I started out in 1992 participating in antique shows up and down the East Coast from Atlantic City to Atlanta. What great fun that was... I was a "greenhorn" antique dealer, the youngest that I knew of back then, and the older dealers took me under their wings and taught me the ropes. Then in 1997, with the coming of the internet, I started selling on Ebay. It was a brand new world, literally... I had customers from Europe, Asia and beyond!

In 2008 I started a new and exciting venture on Ruby Lane. My shop on Ruby Lane is like the old days at the shows, but everyday (24 hours a day!) my wares are on display for sale. I strive to find interesting and beautiful things for you to see and purchase for your enjoyment or for re-sale (I sell a lot to other dealers too!) My goal is to gain your trust as an honest, reputable and knowledgeable dealer. My motto has always been the "Golden Rule"... "Do unto others as you would have done unto you." I try to deal with customers how I would like to be dealt with. I have prided myself in providing clear and accurate photographs with precise descriptions of the items I sell, because I understand the difficulty in buying anything over the internet without seeing or holding the object in person. I provide a excellent return policy to back up my sales. My ultimate goal is to provide you with a smooth transaction and have you as a long-time satisfied customer. Your ultimate satisfaction is what keeps me motivated to buy and sell fine merchandise. Please check my selling page often, as I will always continue to seek, find, and post for sale, the rare, the unusual, and the unexpected!

Thank you for taking the time to read a little "About Me"! Feel free to contact me anytime if you have a question about an item...and please feel free to make an offer! I try to work with customers as much as I can. Have a great day!
