Cheeky Kiki's Fab Finds
About Delectable Collectibles
Our Service PledgeI consider it a privilege to do what I do, which is to purchase and display for sale on Ruby Lane, beautiful (and sometimes funky) vintage pieces. None of it would be possible though without loyal customers who share my sense of taste, and trust that I will fulfill my commitments to them.
So, I make sure that my word can be counted on, that I present pieces with all the information I believe to be true and that if I make a mistake, I do everything in my power to correct it. I won’t pretend to know more than I do. The field of vintage objects is vast, and every day brings new opportunities for learning. What I know I will share with you. What I don’t know I will tell you.
My customers appreciate that vintage sometimes means there are signs of wear on a piece that simply come from using an object that has been around for twenty years or more. My pledge is to do my best to document any signs of damage or obvious flaws that could affect your buying decision.
However, isn’t part of the mystery and wonder of vintage pieces to see that they’ve been used and think about where they’ve been and what stories they could tell?
Please know that I always welcome any questions or requests for additional pictures because I want my customers to be completely happy with their purchases. And I believe communication is the key to any successful transaction. So, let me know if there is anything more I can do to increase your comfort level in making that purchase or resolving a problem.
Knowing that my customers are satisfied and come back to shop again is worth any effort.
Thank you, Kiki’s mom Gail

About UsGreetings and thanks for taking the time to read about Delectable Collectibles. When I started my business it was to accommodate my love of all things beautiful. And let's face it, I can't fit all those beautiful things into one small home. So I've decided to keep finding fabulous things and sharing them with you.
My friends all tell me I have a good eye and I want to make my shop a place where you can browse in comfort for all kinds of wonderful discoveries.
I nicknamed my shop, Cheeky Kiki's after my adorable Coton de Tulear, Kiki with her 13 pounds of pure dog energy, because collecting for me is like chasing a ball for her. A great sense of fun and adventure.
In truth I've been collecting unusual, one of a kind objects and items that capture my imagination and my sense of beauty all my life.
If you've made your way to my shop I think you'll understand what I mean about appreciating beautiful objects and how they can pull you in to their story.
Before deciding to open a shop I was an administrator at a College in Canada. My work took me all over the world. What an opportunity to see beauty as it exists in every culture. Each piece I brought home from my travels has a story. Now my travels involve spending 6 months a year in Florida to avoid the dreadful Canadian winters. So while I have a Canadian address, I ship from Venice, Florida from November until April. Look for announcements on when this snow bird flies north.
Because I admire fine craftsmanship and a sense of history my focus is on vintage, collectibles and antiques. I love the story behind the objects I bring home and feel compelled to find out as much as I can about each piece, which I am always happy to share with you.
Even if an item has been mass produced like depression glass, there is a master artist at the beginning of the process who designed every detail of the piece you hold in your hands.
Opening my store has been the fulfillment of a long held dream to search out and sell to those who appreciate lovely objects in all their forms.
In particular I collect depression glass, vintage signed costume jewellery, sterling silver jewellery, crystal glassware, old porcelain and anything quirky and unusual with a history. I invite you to come and browse. There's always something new to spark your interest.
When I'm not searching for treasures I am practicing yoga, biking and hanging out with my best buddy Kiki who brightens all my days and my 96 year old father who got me to Florida in the first place.
