Ruby Plaza Shop: The Vanities of Life
Ruby Lane Shop: Bonnie Boswell Antiques
Owners Name: Bonnie Boswell
A little introduction: I have been married to my husband David for 31 years. We have two daughters & two grandchildren. We love to travel. I have been an Antique dealer for 30 years. I love vintage jewelry, china, linens, Christmas & holiday decorations & decorative interior elements for the home.
Favorite item in your shop? Magnificent Circa 1850 English Brass Tazza Winged Cherubs-Gargoyles-Fruit. In 30 years in this business I have never found a more wonderful piece of period brass. The gargoyles on the base have horns and very stern faces. I don’t use the word magnificent lightly or often.
What got you started selling online? Before the internet I traveled 30,000 miles every year doing shows. Selling online has been a Godsend for me. I started in 1997 with ebay like most of folks. I am now exclusively on Ruby Lane and LOVE it! With hard work and the "Lanes" help, my business has grown every year.
