Welcome to Heads Up Vintage Collectibles! My name is Ruth Harris and I live in Michigan about 20 miles northwest of Ann Arbor. I have been selling on Rubylane now since the year 2000 and have hundreds if not thousands of satisfied customers. I specialize in lady head vases and other figural wares from the art deco period to the retro 50's and 60's. I also adore vintage costume jewelry and fashion related accessories, such as purses, vanity items etc.. so you will find my shop bursting at the seam with this fun girly stuff. However, I am always looking for the unusual and you will find a vast array of items in my shop as I consign or purchase other items (even mens things!) that I find interesting or appealing. And, when my customers make their wishes known I am sure to keep my eye out for them!
In home decor items, I am drawn to the clean lines of both the art deco and modern 50's but find myself tempted by Victorian and Art Nouveau influences as well. If you were to visit my home you would find an eclectic mix! Unfortunately, during this time in my life I must keep my collections small and behind glass since I have three young boys at home! However, that is great news for my customers because I am not able to hold onto all the beautiful items I come across, though not without wanting...
I have met many of my online customers at local antique shows as well as the Head Vase Convention every year. I hope you will plan to visit me there too! Check my homepage show list often as I sometimes add shows throughout the year. Although I enjoy treasure hunting and selling, I find the relationships that I have built through online friendships to be the most valuable asset of my business--I look forward to meeting you!
Looking for something specific? Let me know, I just may have it hiding in my backroom!
