Shop Owner Review: September Red Tag Sale

Ruby Lane Red Tag Sales are spread out throughout the year. Participation by shop owners is optional. I look forward to the sales as they drive business, bring new shoppers to my store, and grow the wish list. Items I have listed often sell after the sale at regular price. Ruby Lane usually chooses mid September, the first Saturday in December, and near or after Mother’s Day for a sale. We also had one in January.

" Welcome to the Twenty-First Century !"

That’s how my youngest son put it. I fought it for over a year, but finally succumbed to the Smart Phone lure. I’ll spare you all the gory details that led to this decision and jump right in with my first adventure in goody-hunting.

Homemade Costume Jewelry

Long before I began collecting and selling vintage costume jewelry, I was a crafter. Like many artisans, my ingenuity was born out of necessity. I found Christmas approaching with very little money left in the family budget. It was 1978 and initial jewelry was all the rage. I solved my dilemma by cross stitching monogrammed brooches for our mothers, sisters, BFFs and aunts.

Guercino and Handel: A Possible Comparison


This painting is shown alongside two 1740s Manuscripts of the cantata La Lucretia by George Friedrich Handel, (1685-1759) the German-born British Baroque composer famous for his operas and organ concertos. The exhibition brings together two creative interpretations of the Lucretia story: Guercino’s painting and Handel’s music.
