About Nancy's Fancy Antiques
Our Service PledgeWe respond to all orders within 24 hours. We guarantee the authenticity of and provide excellent customer service for all merchandise sold at Nancy's Fancy.
About UsOwner, Nancy Marshall, who has been in the antique and fashion business in New York City for many years has amassed a collection of exquisite bibelots to share with you.
Nancy's Fancy is the next stop on her lifelong journey, sharing her passion and expertise for antiques with people who want to take the trip with her.
It's a journey that started in New York City years ago at a store called Fiorucci, imported from Milan, Italy, which Nancy immediately discovered and brought to it a warm corner full of small hand-picked, antique pieces. She expanded that business to antique outposts at the three key Ann Taylor stores in New York, Beverly Hills and Westport, CT. Nancy then went on to grow her wholesale and retail collections from her own antique store in New York City, using it as a wholesale showroom and retail gallery of antique pens and inkwells, perfumers, vanity items, jewelry, lockets, brooches and necklaces to some of the finest department and specialty stores around the world, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, Henri Bendel, Lord & Taylor, and Bloomingdale's. Her personal collection of 19th century hand-dip pens, card cases and desk accessories appeared in the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum's Reading and Writing Exhibit in New York, and many are now for sale here.
Most of the jewels here have been stashed away in a trunk for over 30 years just waiting for the right moment to part with them, and now is the time. So enjoy browsing and shopping!
Now, Nancy brings her special taste and finds to you through her newest shop at Ruby Lane.
Hello Nancy. Just wanted to let you know that I love the Art
Nouveau Calling Card Case. It is really quite unique, and is
in lovely condition. I do have to trim my business cards a bit,
as the case will not close if you put more than one standard size
card inside. But to be honest, that's not a big deal and it is
certainly worth it. Thanks again, Catherine 01-27-14
Hi Nancy, the bottle arrived here fine and I love it. :) Thanks so much, Melissa 10-07-13
Hi Nancy, Just wanted to let you know that the package arrived safely and I simply love it !! You can be sure that this bit of history has a good home ! I know it is unlikely, but if you ever find matching pieces I would love to know.
Have a great weekend ! Alice 09-27-13
Hello. The set has arrived...simply lovely! If the hand mirror

Hi Nancy, I just sent you an email and 15 minutes later the mail arrived and so did the bracelet! It fits perfectly and is looks great. I will give it a light polish to bring up the gold colour. Thanks again for everything. Annette 09-03-13

Nancy- I just wanted to send a note to let you know that the humidor arrived in perfect condition and looks just lovely in my husband's curio with his collection of antique and vintage humidors, cigar cutters, cigar holders and cases, and lighters. Everyone comments on his collection in his curio and the faux staghorn humidor receives many compliments. People are always surprised at how heavy the glass is when they hold it. I seem to have become addicted to Ruby Lane so do not be surprised if you see my name again in the future. Best regards,Colleen - 04-23-13

Hi Nancy, 'Wow, what a find! Great items, great taste, great prices and brilliant, friendly service. Living in the UK some things take a great deal of time to reach me from America, this is not the case with Nancy's Fancy. Items are well packed and arrive in great condition. I will definitely be returning for more goodies - the only difficulty is not getting carried away with all these beautiful items. Really lovely, thank you Nancy!' Kelly - UK - 11-09-12
