About Jan's Treasures

Many years ago as a very young girl, a seed was planted by my favourite Aunt. She introduced me to her china cabinet and I was a goner. In 2000, I discovered eBay and shortly thereafter, Ruby Lane. I began collecting and upgrading my own china pattern and my daughter’s china pattern (inherited from my Mother) and I am still here but have expanded in a very big way. I now have taken over the rec room, my husband’s den and as well, his work shop with all of "my collectibles". All this business takes place in Northern Ontario Canada and keeps me very busy but it sure is a good time-filler. If I don't have too many parcels to ship in any given day, I usually let Shelby, my English Springer Spaniel, take me out for a walk for some fresh air and exercise over to the Post Office. The ladies there are very fond of her and she relishes in the treats given to her.

After retiring from an office position, I started to sell on eBay's auction site; strictly things I had collected over the years but now have acquired quite a large selection of collectibles of all types from estate sale purchases, auctions and even yard sales. Now it seems I have created a new profession and am selling for clients as well. I may have to consider returning to the work force to keep the workload down. Don't let the word RETIREMENT fool you. It is anything but!!!

I now have many returning customers and have built up a great reputation for quality, honesty in descriptions and a very high standard of packing and shipping. My passion has always been lovely dishes and collectibles of all types, but now is ranging to anything I think someone may like to collect. Having such a wide interest in collectibles which is branching out and growing every day, I just felt anything was collectible so you never know what you may find in my listings.

Some of my specialties are Shelley, Royal Albert, Depression Glass, Fire King, Royal Doulton, Fenton, McCoy, vintage jewelry, actually, any vintage collectibles!!!
