In September my beloved husband of 35 years and partner in Ruby Lane adventures, Cowboy Rick, passed away. At his memorial service we displayed hundreds of his nature photographs he had taken over the last ten years (some displayed here). He collected photos of butterflies and of waterfalls and of birds and of mountains and of National Parks and well, you get the idea.

eBay.co.uk recently was asked to remove Holocaust memorabilia offered for sale from its website. eBay also does not allow the sale of Nazi memorabilia. What has been your experience with this issue?

Thinking about the new year made me want to write a recap of 2013. I began selling on Ruby Lane in February 2011 and my sales have grown each year. I also sell in an antique mall and the year has been very good there. When sales slow down after Christmas, my Ruby Lane shop continues to do well in January and February. The best months in the mall are: March, May, September, October and November. Ruby Lane customers buy year round but sales are slower in the summer months.

Back in October a woman called to ask me if I would come to her home to give her some idea of how to dispose of a “lot” of antiques/collectibles that she had. Upon seeing her items, I made some suggestions, one of which was to invite over an Antique Dealer friend of mine who sells the type of items that she had. She agreed and my friend went to her home upon which she bought three pieces.

Among antique lighting collectors, a unique group of transportation industry fans is especially enthralled by railroad lanterns. As opposed to heavy, stationary lamps that rail operations also utilized, hand-held, portable lanterns were relied upon as signaling devices essential to help ensure the safety of passengers and train workers.
