Open A Ruby Lane Shop – $75 Set-Up Fee Waived Through October 15!

For many, the number 13 conjures-up images of bad luck. Few buildings acknowledge they have a 13th floor, and many superstitious people stay locked in their houses on Friday the 13th. But all of us at Ruby Lane are excited to celebrate our 13th year in business. And August is the official month we opened, so we decided to offer a special promotion to sellers who want to join us during this period.

With the recent increase in first class package mailing rates, Cowboy Rick and I decided to survey our customers to ask their opinions on shipping policies and costs. The results were surprising and led to some major changes in our shops.

The survey went out to our 200 repeat and regular customers. We offered a significant discount in our shops if they replied. About 30 customers replied to the survey and took advantage of the promotion. The information we received in return was priceless.
