About UsMy shop offers vintage costume jewelry and fine jewelry, vintage to antique purses, and collectibles. I feature costume jewelry by Sherman and Florenza, gold, sterling silver and precious gemstone jewelry, and vintage purses from the 1920's to the 1960's. Quality jewelry, fashions and collectibles at affordable prices.
I started out with a passion for collecting vintage to antique purses which lead to collecting beautiful pieces of vintage costume jewelry. My favourite designers are Sherman, Florenza, Art and Hollycraft. I love jewelry that is antique or vintage, especially if the quality is as good as fine jewelry. My research over the past few years has helped me recognize quality pieces.
Since I was a teenager, I have loved and collected antique and vintage treasures. Growing up, every year I would go to the annual local church rummage sale. If I knew then what I know now about vintage jewelry and collectibles, I would have gone nuts at those rummage sales. In my twenties, I remember wearing rhinestone clip-on earrings even when I was on a two hour bike ride. One time, I was wearing a beautiful art deco chandelier clip-on earring (only one earring, because I had only one of these earrings, and I thought it was cool to wear one) and it fell off when I was riding my bike. A bus ran over it and crushed it. I still have it, but it won't make its way into my shop because I won't be selling items that have been run over by a bus (LOL).
After 23 years of teaching elementary school, I have decided to follow my passion by having a store on Ruby Lane. My philosophy is that I love my collection of jewelry and purses, but an even greater joy is having treasures that people desire and selling them at a price that brings happiness to others.
