About UsWelcome to my shop. We feature an array of unique vintage treasures from quality scarves, handbags, vintage jewelry, fashion accessories, to one of a kind collectibles. Vintage designer scarves and unique handbags and earrings are a passion for me and I can't keep everything. We also have some lovely Asian pieces listed frequently. As a new grandmother, I keep finding wonderful vintage baby and youth items.
I love to travel and always travel very light. Last year on a 3 week trip to the UK, I took only a carry on and a small day backpack. I looked and felt great from hiking through the windy Orkney islands, to dining in a fine restaurant in Manchester. My major travel accessory, and secret for extending my wardrobe, is a collection of scarves carefully selected in my travel color palette. From a long artisan multi colored knotty knit silk, a lightweight cashmere, to several silk scarfs, all in my 2 color travel palette, I quickly change my scarf, shoes, exchange my rain jacket for a long lightweight wrinkle-free travel sweater, and look great for dinner and an evening out, or a day of shopping or exploring museums and art galleries. I usually pick up a scarf or two on my travels to add to my collection. Topping your travel attire with a scarf when you fly also makes you look a little more put together, and I think you receive better service on a crowded plane when you look nice. Scarves take up no room in a suitcase and can take the place of a necklace as well as providing a polished look. Of course, I wear them at home as often as possible.
Antiques and beautiful objects have always been central in my life, my first 'real job' out of college was in an antique shop off Union Street in San Francisco, Octavia's Madness, and, with the Internet, life seems to have come full circle here with Ruby Lane. The hunt is my passion and my home shows it. The road less traveled has always been my road. Taking that occasional country road or an interesting alley is what has made collecting interesting, fun, and exciting for me. I love placing my treasures with wonderful new homes, every piece has a story and was loved once and needs to be loved and treasured again and incorporated into a new life .
I am always finding a little something out of the ordinary so please visit often and subscribe to my shop for notifications of new additions. Thanks for shopping with me, you keep me on the hunt!
