We always give a complete description of our treasures, pointing out even the slightest blemishes. We pack all our shipments with utmost care.
About UsMy start in the quest for antiques began by spending the summers with an aunt on the family farm where my mother and sisters were raised. In addition to farming, my aunt spent her butter and egg money buying antiques in the Indiana countryside. She often took me along with her and I loved it. I started learning my trade at the age of 9. Since then I haven't stopped learning all I can about antiques and loving every minuet of it!
Although working as an executive secretary for years, I never gave up the idea of working with antiques full time. I began selling antiques at Flea Markets and eventually graduated to 3&4 day indoor shows throughout the country.
Being 79 years old now, I think ruby lane will work well for me. I've been in the antique business for 48 years. An antique is 100+ years old ( U. S. Customs law). Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Mission all have their place in the field.
It has been my buying philosophy to purchase nothing I wouldn't have in my own home. Please welcome my associates and I to Ruby Lane.
