About My Finest Things

Our Service Pledge
All my items for sale are in very good to excellent condition. If not, it will be stated in the description. I purchase only items that I would personally wear and that I truly love. Please remember that these items are 50+ years old. Due to this there will always be some imperfection. Please keep in mind that they were once worn and loved... Cherish them as such!
About Us
I often ask myself "where did it begin?? Did it start in the late 80's at a high-end dept. store in Boston, Mass., when I found a fabulous fully beaded silk scarf, rumpled up on a sales table with a 75% off tag attached? I referred to it as one of "my finest things".Or did it begin in the mid-90's when my 89 year old Great Aunt passed away and left me a Samsonite cosmetic case filled with costume jewelry? Maybe it began in 2001 with the help of a dear friend who is a vintage purse restorer. She introduced me to the world of Ebay and the art of collecting antique micro beaded purses. Or is it simply a culmination of all these experiences that have ultimately led me to this point; finally opening my own shop here on Ruby Lane. Whatever the case may be, I am delighted to be here! Please be assured that I am committed to bringing you only the finest items and am totally committed to 100% customer satisfaction. If I do not personally love it, you will not see it in my shop...All items are hand-picked for quality, desirability, and condition. It is my hope that you will love them as much as I do !!! I am a long-standing member of the Antique Purse Collector's Society, Costume Jewelry Collector's International, and Jewel Collect; all of which promote the education of vintage purses and vintage costume jewelry in it's many forms and eras.
