If you are in the area, please stop by the Salmon Brook Shops at 563 Salmon Brook Street, Route 10/202, Granby, CT . We have over 30 dealers, 6 rooms, with many nice old items. As manager, I invite you to spend an hour or two browsing! You may also pick up your order there if you wish! Most of the items you see in our Ruby Lane shop are not available at the shop, so please let me know if you would like me to bring a specific piece into the store for your inspection, and I would be very happy to do so!

Here is what just a few of our satisfied customers have to say about us:

Bev: I did receive the order in wonderful shape, and so promptly. It was all as I hoped it would be .. this being the first time I have ever ordered such things through the internet, I am most appreciative of your excellent photos, and honesty in describing every detail of the items. It was a rewarding experience and I hope to have the opportunity to purchase from you again. I visited some of the other antique "stores" on-line, but they did not begin to compare with yours.

Kristine: I'm so happy and pleased! Your packing looked as though it could safely go around the world. Again, my many thanks!

Lynn: The Chippendale berry bowls arrived safely today. The Post Office had stamped the box: "received in bad condition at Town, State Zip", which the mailman pointed out to me. There was a large tear in the box, but I told him you guys were pros and that I was sure the inside packing was done well. It was done VERY well...I've never had a package with interior packing done quite so well! Thanks, the dishes are great; I'm so happy to have them!

Bart: The coffee pot, as well as the sugar bowl and creamer, arrived today in excellent condition! I am absolutely thrilled with them. You guys are great ... I was very impressed with the way you protected these delicate and rare pieces of porcelain...I must tell you, however, that the pieces survived only because of your ultra-careful packaging. When the carton arrived there was a huge gash in one side, 12" long and penetrating about 3" into the box. So much for the FRAGILE labeling! Had you not packaged the pieces so well, they never would have made it.

John: I got my nutcracker today (one day service!!!). I am thrilled with the nutcracker, in excellent shape!! was packed great, too good, took me a while to unpack him!! I would like to say it was a pleasure dealing with you and please use me as a reference if you'd like, a terrific online buying experience, Thanks again.

Angelica: My gravy boat arrived and it is great. A comfortable match to my china. Your packaging WOW took me at least ten minutes to unwrap (so securely done). also thank you for the quick responses on email I always appreciate good manners. This has been a wonderful transaction. Thank you once more

Jane: Is is possible that the auctions for these lovely cups & saucers just closed on Friday,and they arrived on Monday? That is truly phenomenal! Thank you so much for your careful inspection of these cups -- your honesty and accuracy is very much appreciated. You were correct, they are not perfect, but there is handiwork involved and they are vintage. These are the match to my grandmother's set, so they will be used with extra care and pride. I am leaving very positive feedback for you, and I wanted to let you know personally how your efforts made the difference.

Amy: AWESOME! Friendly emails, quick to ship, packed very well. I love my plates!

Pete: Piece arrived ONE day after I sent payment!!!!!! Highly recommend buying from

Jan: Efficiency Service. Great communication, fast delivery with no mistakes/PERFECT.

Carl: Wonderful service. Fast! Plates wrapped so an elephant couldn't break

Dianna: Keep up the great work. Just had to let you know about the duck. When the postman brought it to me the box was really damaged. He told me that it was just about squished in half, and that he had pulled the box out some. I was very doubtful of its condition. But low and behold... it was in perfect shape, no damage what so ever!! I really believe the bubble wrap was the key. It's beautiful!

Puerto Rico: We received the casseroles and they were really really well packed! You should think about starting your own packaging business! the casseroles are fabulous, we are very pleased, thanks for everything.
