About Us
We offer whimsical quirky & irresistible antique gifts for children of all ages. Our specialty is 19th century English toy ceramics made for children and for their dolls and playmates,and for the simply young at heart. Along with an extensive collection of ABC alphabet and animal motifs and early children's tea sets and dolls tablewares, we carry an inventory of other childrens toys, tin paper litho and whimsies. Ask us if you don't see what you're looking for...we keep the best for last!


We also specialize in Aesthetic Movement transfer printed earthenwares, reflecting the Victorian love of nature and the exotic, which we offer for sale in our sister shop on Ruby Lane.


We have a lot of other good stuff for sale that has not yet made it into our shop...we are always buying new treasure. If you are looking for something special that we may have on hand or may be able to source for you, please call or email us. We ship worldwide.


Customers may pay for their purchases with cash, personal or business check, Paypal or a credit card (through Paypal -- does not require a Paypal account) at any time. We are unable to extend credit to our customers but are happy to arrange a short term layaway payment plan for bigger purchases. GIFT CERTIFICATES are available in any denomination.


We buy our stock by the piece or the lot, and would be delighted to hear from you about items you are interested in selling.
