About UsI first opened my shop on Ruby Lane in 2006 and remained part of their family until 2018 when our family relocated from Prescott, Arizona to Sarasota, Florida. The years with Ruby Lane were rewarding in so many ways and I have missed it. It's good to be back among my peers and have the professional support and backing of Ruby Lane and it's customer service team. As a platinum seller it was an honor to sell, serve and befriend customers from around the globe.
I have been a collector for most of my life and I love history. My education is in the visual arts and architectural history. My love of Art and design has inspired and colored my world in many exciting ways. I've restored and decorated 17 homes which fed my passion. With more than 30 years as a corporate wife, multiple relocations and years of travels . . . life has been an adventure . In 2014 time approached to face our retirement and decide if we wanted to remain in Arizona or move back to Florida. One more move did not thrill us but we were very familiar with the drill to sort and discard. Sifting through things was a natural task for us. Over the years we learned how to move without expensive clutter making our back to Florida, where my husband and I met in the 70’s, easy and exciting.
When I first opened my shop with Ruby Lane in 2006 I chose the shop name which is French meaning a melange ... a collection, blend or mixture of things. I began by selling our personal inventory of fine art, prints, art glass / pottery / books / handbags / accessories and, of course, jewelry. It didn’t take long to fill my shop with beautiful things to sell and It been an exciting and fulfilling business meeting people around the globe and just knowing that others will continue to enjoy and cherish our beautiful finds too. We are MELANGE, a place to shop, peruse and collect the unusual and sometimes rare beautiful bits and pieces of artistic history.
