About Pearl's Parlor
Our Service PledgeThank you for visiting Pearl's Parlor. We respond to all orders and questions within 24 hours and ship within 24 to 48 hours (Monday thru Friday) following the receipt of your verified payment. Please click on Terms of Sale for additional information.
We describe all items as thoroughly as possible and take photos from several different angles. All of our items are vintage and pre-owned, so they will show normal and typical signs of aging and use, as most items with age are not perfect. We try to avoid the use of subjective descriptions such as Excellent or Very Good, as those terms mean different things to different people. However, we do try to mention any damage, flaws, or imperfections or show them in the photos - no matter how minor they may seem.
We're always happy to answer any questions and supply more photos upon request.
About UsPearl's Parlor specializes in antique and vintage framed prints, postcards, lithographed tin items, bookends and book racks, and other smalls.
My shop is named in memory of my mother, Pearl. She first introduced me to antiques and collectibles by taking me with her to estate sales. In particular, I inherited her love of antique and vintage framed prints. Her house was filled with them, and now so is mine. I love all types of ephemera - prints, postcards and advertising items - especially the calendar prints from the 1900's to 1940's (often referred to as the Golden Age of Illustration). I have collected for years and started selling items from my collections over 14 years ago. I am currently an associate-level member of the Asheford Institute of Antiques, having completed their distance-learning course in 2014.
In addition to downsizing my own collection, the items in my Ruby Lane shop came from antique stores, antique shows, estate sales, auctions and flea markets in the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio (and Florida during the winter). My favorites have always been postcards and framed prints of beautiful Victorian and Art Nouveau style ladies (like the one I'm using for my shop logo), Native American Indian Maidens (as my mother was part Cherokee), and children with their pets (since I have a dog and a cat of my own).
We add items daily, so please stop by again. Thanks for visiting!
