Hi Ken, I just wanted to let you know that the Larson bird
arrived today, safe and very sound thanks to your OUTSTANDING
packing job!!! Wow!!! An elephant sitting on that box would not
have done damage to the piece! I'm very pleased with everything.
Thank you very much, and I hope we do business again. Also,
please feel free to use me as a reference.

Good Morning, Ken -
Thank you for the careful packaging and quick shipping. The clock arrived yesterday and is in great shape. It's beautiful and a great compliment to our others. We have a great clock repairman who will have it running like new in no time! It's become our hobby to find antique clocks in need of repair and bring them "back to life." This one's a beauty!
We'll stop by your shop any time we're on Ruby Lane.
Much appreciated -
Jodie & Rob Gribik, Harrisburg, PA

Just wanted to let you know that the chandeliers arrived safe and sound and that I am most happy with them.
Andrea Selser, Troy, MI
Both the lamp and shade arrived safely today. Excellent
packaging. The lamp is outstanding. I couldn't be more pleased.
Also, thanks for sending the shade as well. I kind of like it,
but it is quite beat. I'll use it until I get something else and
it's given me some good ideas. Thank you and best regards

The cup and two saucers were waiting for me at my door when I came home
from work today. They arrived in perfect condition, wonderfully
wrapped, and secure against any weather. In Oregon, it rains all the
time, but no problem for the package.
All is well. Thank you for your promptness. I will have fun over
Easter with my Shelley cups for tea with my granddaughter.
Nancy - Portland, Or.
I got to open my package last Friday - what a beautiful job
you did packaging the fixture! It is just exactly what I wanted
and just as you described it. I may touch up a little of the
green paint but that's it - just need that ceiling plate and I
will be ready for the electrician to install it.
It is a very beautiful fixture even in its temporary location - I
have it hanging from a ceiling hook in a room full of plants.
Many thanks for your expert handling of this item-
Linda O. - Chicago, IL
I just wanted to let you know that I received the gravy boat, and
it's wonderful - crazing and all! I have red willow dishes and
am always on the lookout for interesting vintage pieces to fill
out my collection.
I'm also impressed with the packing job. Nicely done. That
gravy boat wasn't going anywhere. In fact, for a while, I wasn't
sure I'd be able to hack my way through to the actual china. :)
Thanks for offering such a nice piece. I've subscribed to your
shop, so I'm sure I'll be back for more.
M. Denton Williamsville, NY
It has been such a pleasure to do business with you. The way in which my new treasure came packaged and wrapped was amazing. I was so excited like a little kid at Christmas to get the box opened and then all of the wrapping to protect my new painting which is exactly as you described by the way, I broke into a sweat as the excitement built up to getting all of the bubble that protected the frame and painting so perfectly. Thank you so very much, I love it and can not wait to get it hung. I have the perfect spot just waiting!!
Barb Messner - Milton Grove, IL
Dear Ken ~
First, I want to thank you for refunding the shipping overpayment.
I received the chandelier yesterday. I am impressed with the care that was
taken to wrap it for shipping, and wanted to let you know that it is
appreciated. Thank you, also, for the prompt shipment.
It is a lovely chandelier, and this was an excellent transaction. I am very
Best regards ~

Hey There Ken,
I've just finished unpacking the gorgeous Hollywood china set I
purchased from you.
THANK YOU so much for your expert packing job. Every piece arrived
safely and I could not be more delighted.
My other china includes a very comprehensive set of Riviera left to
me by a friend, and my tride and true Fire King, so this Hollywood set
is going to be a great addition.
I really love it and will absolutely use it. That said, if you find
any more of this pattern, or Green Wheat or Hollyhock by Leigh, I
would be interested in acquiring anything (especially more saucers and
dinner plates for this set).
Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH. The condition is pristine, the packing
professional, and the customer service---outstanding.
Bob - New York, NY
This clock is great! The packing and shipping job you did was second to none. It arrived yesterday. I took it apart and oiled the movement, polished the dial bezel and used mineral spirits to strip off all the old wax buildup on the case and then give it a good coat of lindseed oil. The clock looks beautiful now and I love the nice mellow tones of the Westminster chime.
This clocks movement has been re-bushed and from what I see it is the original B- 3 rotor. It will definitely go on to become treasured by my family for many generations. Thanks for an enjoyable purchasing transaction. I will definitely be checking out Ruby Lane and Island Treasures more often.
Chris Miller - East Stroudsburg, PA
Thank you Ken -
I received your package and the dishes are wonderful, all in perfect condition! Hope to purchase more from you in the future.

The Federal Glass dishes arrived today in perfect condition.
What a beautiful packing job! I am very impressed and would

Dear Ken -
The chandelier arrived on Tuesday.
It arrived in perfect condition. The thoroughness of your packing is
truly impressive - in the infinite care and patience evidenced by
your superb preparation for shipment. I have never witnessed such
attention to detail and such great care. It took two of us over two
hours to carefully unpack what you had so magnificently cradled in
its shipping quarters.
Each of the flowers, the limbs of the fixture and the chain - all
carefully wrapped - and with the ceiling fixture - wonderfully
complete. The box as well (3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet) was in
The chandelier is as beautiful as you described - and it will work
perfectly in its new location.
We appreciate so very much the care you have taken with assuring the
chandelier arrived undamaged.
We sincerely thank you for your attention to detail and great care in
assuring its safety. The chandelier is perfect in all respects.

Good morning, Ken!
I wanted to drop you a quick note thanking you for the beautiful lamp I
