Ruby Plaza Shop: Antiques and Treasures Untold
Owners Name: Kathy Thomas
A little introduction:
Hi! My name is Kathy Thomas of Gastonia, NC. I sell antiques, collectibles, vintage, jewelry, hand-made, home décor and gift items for you and your home. I also sell Fair Trade items in all most categories. I sell here on Ruby Plaza and on eBay. You never know what treasures you will find in my store!
Favorite Item in Your Shop:
Fair Trade Musical Mouser Oil Drum Art - Haiti. A wonderful whimsical cat playing and singing to his mouse friends. Made by hand by Fair Trade Artisans in Haiti, purchase of this piece and others like them helps the artisans support themselves in a disadvantaged country.
What got you started selling online?
My business started as an idea to help my friend, Nancy, sell merchandise from her shop. She encouraged me to start my own business instead of just selling for her. Since June of 2009, my shop has been evolving from just an antiques store into a home and fashion destination. I joined Ruby Plaza in Sept. 2010 because it seemed the perfect venue for my mix of merchandise.
