Family Tradition Made Even More Special

"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love." Hamilton Wright Mabi

The Christmas season embodies love and it is very much a time of sentimentality. It is a time of special traditions whilst feelings of joy and benevolence surround the holiday. With the beautiful lights and decorations making everything so festive it’s easy to get caught up in the romanticism of the season.

Evolution of an Antique Dealer - More on Butterflies and Enamel

This article is not meant to be an encyclopedia of enamel techniques, but it is meant to be an introduction to some terminology and methods used to create the types of enamel works that I collect and sell - especially butterfly pins.

My Favorite Time of Year

As both a collector and dealer I look forward to this season...the Hustle and Bustle is just so exciting! I hear time and time again that it's most fun to gift and treasure hunt from the comfort of your own home. I myself feel that way!

Often times dealers will keep special stock ready in the wings to flood their shops with new inventory. This can include but is not limited to Religious and Seasonal/Holiday themes. This affords opportunity for collectors to take advantage of browsing fresh new pieces that have been just waiting to be revealed.

For shop owners this is a great time of year to meet new clients, while showing those valued repeat buyers you appreciate their time and consideration. It's also a time when current inventory may be deeply discounted to close out the year with more sales.

Estimating Shipping Weight: A Primer for New Shop Owners

Its not what you know but what you don’t know that causes all the blisters. That’s why I never wanted to grow up to be a greenhorn. There’s no glamour in it.

So I opened my Ruby Lane shop without a care in the world about blisters. I had years of experience selling antiques and collectibles; no experience selling online, but—how hard could it be—I’d pick the rest of it up as I went along.

Why Buy a Pre-owned Louis Vuitton Bag

Have you always wanted to own a Louis Vuitton bag but never managed to have enough money for a brand new one? Here is the answer: buy pre-owned Louis Vuitton handbags.

Why buy pre-owned Louis Vuitton handbags? Louis Vuitton never has sales or discounts, so you will have to always pay the full retail price if you are going to buy it from a retail store. They never sell damaged goods or seconds, so there is really no way you can get one at a lower price. Unlike other brands there is no season of the year when a Louis Vuitton would be available at a lower price. So, you can’t wait for that after Christmas sale to buy the Louis Vuitton that you have been dreaming of.

The Egg in the Sewing Drawer

Breaking down a family home after 60 plus years of living means that you are asked if there is something you would like of the loved one's belongings. I have been mulling over this question recently and decided I would like something that I know most people would question my sanity upon hearing my choice. I will ask for the family’s sock darner.
