About UsWelcome to my shop! I offer unusual and quality scarves, cashmeres, cufflinks, handbags, vintage jewelry, and interesting collectibles from around the world. I love miniatures and I am parting with some of my collection.
Be sure to view my favorite links, 'How to tie a full Windsor knot' video is great for young men, with step by step directions. There is also a segment on caring for your neckties.
Hopefully you saved some of those 1970's clothes and accessories because, believe it or not, the 1970's look is back! Monochromatic colors are a thing. Check my inventory frequently for some very cool accessories.
For all of us missing travel and adventures, start planning a dream trip now! Think about how to travel light with just a carry-on and a holdall, making the most of a capsule wardrobe by pairing a great collection of scarves with your travel color palette. Think about taking along a small array of different multi colored artisanal knit silk, cashmere for fall and winter, an infinity, a favorite silk or two, and a great easy care wash and dry polyester to quickly change from a day outdoors to dinner, a concert, a cathedral, museum, or an evening out. Topping your travel attire with a scarf completes a polished look. Scarves take up almost no room in a suitcase and can take the place of a necklace, save a bad hair day, look great around a ponytail, or be your best friend when visiting sites that require a covered head, arms or legs. Scarves are universal and change an ordinary look into interesting. It is also so fun to collect them on a journey as a constant happy memory.
If you are inclined toward ponytails, or love adding a headband, select a smaller silk, easy care polyester, or cotton scarf to tie around your ponytail for a chic polished look or tie under the back of your hair for a great head band. They look great in winter and summer colors.
Beautiful objects, and antiques, have been central in my life for as long as I can remember. My grandparents had a huge antebellum home in Mississippi filled with antiques and interesting European pieces collected during their many travels. My first 'real job' after college was in an antique shop off Union Street in San Francisco, Andre's Octavia's Madness, and, with the Internet, life seems to have come full circle with Ruby Lane. The hunt is my passion and my home and wardrobe show it, but I can't keep everything. So please stop by and wander my collection frequently.
Placing my treasures in wonderful new homes warms my heart and keeps me going. Every piece has a story and was once loved and needs to be treasured again and incorporated into a new life. Some of my pieces have gone to museums, set designers, both stage and film, costumers, stylists, all parts of the globe, and homes just like yours.
I am always finding a little something out of the ordinary, or letting go of an item from one of my many collections, 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!
