About UsWe live in Highland Park, Ill. with our beloved Lhasa Apso, Simon. Our daughters live in Wilmette, Ill. and Darien, Conn. We use Ruby Lane exclusively as sellers of our items and also some items for good friends.
In earlier years we, with our collections, have been on TELEVISION: A&E cable's "The Incurable Collector" and Home & Garden cable's "At the Auction", "The Appraisal Fair" and"What's it Worth? These programs are rerun occasionally. We're also in MAGAZINES "Art & Antiques" (March 2001, Top Collectors Issue), "American Country Collectibles," "Collectibles, "Romantic Homes," "Country Sampler" and Becoming Family. We and/or our bakelite collection can be seen in BOOKS: "Bakelite in the Kitchen" (Barbara Mauzy), "Bakelite Bangles" (Karima Parry), "Bakelite Pins" (Karima Parry), "Shultz Bakelite Jewelry" (Karima Parry) and "The Bakelite Collection" (Matthew Burkholz).
Please feel free to contact us with questions or comments, as we enjoy being helpful and making new friends.
Our principal substantial collections have been: BAKELITE (primarily jewelry), ADVERTISING (containers, signs, etc.), and RAGGEDY ANN DOLLS. We have sold much, but not all, of those items in recent years (our children did not ever want to inherit them!) Quality Bakelite, Advertising and Raggedy Ann items are still available through our Ruby Lane shop. We are also selling many other collectible items: Toys, Crystal Animals, Tools (with brass), Books (non-fiction); also some clothing and home accessory items.
