About Us
There's always room for more no matter how large your collection gets. As satisfying it is to add new pieces to your collection it is as satisfying to share with fellow collectors. Always on the hunt, exciting new things are found all the time. Everything for sale is vintage. That means made at the appropriate time period i.e. Bakelite is from the 30s & 40s (plain spacers can go into the 50s) and Lucite can go into the 60s-80s.

If the influx of barrels of newly made Asian & Indian fakes has you hesitant, rest assured you will never see a piece of that in my shop. Only vintage Bakelite is sold at Room 4 More, never a fake or reworked piece. Know your seller. I know the vintage from the newly made fake from a mile away so you will never buy anything that is newly made to deceive at Room 4 More. Shopping at Room 4 More is not like walking through a minefield. The plastic is what is stated, no guesses, no incorrect identifications.

I love Bakelite bangle bracelets but can't resist the wonderful carvings in Bakelite pins, clips, and buckles. Always a favorite are Bakelite figurals. We all spot a piece that has us saying "I've got to have that!". Hopefully you will experience that while in my shop!

Sixteen plus years ago I didn't know Bakelite from butter until a green circle pin with pink celluloid bells dangling from it caught my eye. Since then I have been buying and selling up and down the east coast. And now in my 10th year on Ruby Lane I have the pleasure of enjoying Bakelite and vintage plastics with friends and buyers all over the world.

I co-authored the book called "Plastic Bangles". (Schiffer 2005) which has been very well received in the US and Europe. It covers every material from celluloid & Bakelite to vintage Lucite. There's thousands of bangles pictured and tons of helpful information about identifying one plastic from another. In 2008 I co-authored a second book called "Bakelite:The Art of the Carver". It is packed with photos of the most fabulously carved Bakelite pieces from singles to complete sets.

So browse through the shop with confidence and know that what you see is authentic and sold by someone who wants your collection to be as cherished as theirs.

A wise dealer once said "All realistic offers accepted, All unrealistic offers considered". I'm a dealer and I like to deal. If there's something you would like to purchase... MAKE AN OFFER! (Only realistic ones, please!)
