About Us
My previous Ruby Lane shop, Melonrose Antiques, was in operation from February 2008 through November 2012, achieving Gold status. After this brief sabbatical Melonrose is now open again, and I'm excited to meet and serve all my new and repeat customers! A unique assortment of my own artisan jewelry will be added periodically as well. All pieces will incorporate vintage components found throughout my years of collecting.

I've been buying and selling vintage and antique items for over 30 years, and still enjoy the thrill of the hunt! Though I've always loved old things, my interest and knowledge began to blossom into a lifelong passion when I worked for a local antique dealer many years ago. From there I branched out into my own business in local antique malls and had spaces in the central Maryland and Northern Virginia areas. Now my sole outlet is here on Ruby Lane.

For eight years I was a Power Seller on eBay and built an excellent reputation there as an honest seller with over 3800 positive feedbacks.

I'm a member of the Glass and Pottery Seller's Association, an organization committed to accurate descriptions with clear pictures, pleasant and helpful communication, quality packing, fast shipping, and honest and fair shipping costs.

Here's what some of my customers have had to say:
