About UsOwner, Nancy Marshall, who has been in the antique and fashion business in New York City for many years has amassed a collection of exquisite bibelots to share with you.
Nancy's Fancy is the next stop on her lifelong journey, sharing her passion and expertise for antiques and vintage with people who want to take the trip with her.
It's a journey that started in New York City years ago at an eclectic modern store called Fiorucci, from Milan, Italy, which Nancy immediately discovered and brought to it a warm corner full of small hand-picked, antique pieces. She expanded that business to antique outposts at the three key Ann Taylor stores in New York, Beverly Hills and Westport, CT. Nancy then went on to grow her wholesale and retail collections from her own antique store in New York City, using it as a wholesale showroom and retail gallery of antique pens and inkwells, perfumers, vanity items, jewelry, lockets, brooches and necklaces to some of the finest department and specialty stores around the world, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, Henri Bendel, Lord & Taylor, and Bloomingdale's. Her personal collection of 19th century hand-dip pens, card cases and desk accessories appeared in the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum's Reading and Writing Exhibit in New York, and many are now for sale here.
Most of the gems here have been stashed away in a trunk for over 30 years just waiting for the right moment to part with them, and now is the time. So enjoy browsing and shopping!
Now, Nancy brings her special taste and finds to you through her newest shop at Ruby Lane.
Dear Nancy, I don't know how you got the package here to Germany so fast, wow! Picked it up yesterday. The little spoons are adorable and I LOVE the bowl, perfect match to the other pieces. I have it displayed on my kitchen table between two Staffordshire cows in the same colors, it looks fabulous. Thank you so much for the excellent packing job, I really appreciate it. I'm sure I'll be returning...until then,
Kindest regards, Rosanne, Germany 04-15-16

Hi Nancy, The compact arrived this morning. It is lovely and was immediately put with its sisters in my display cabinet. Thank you

The shoe trees arrived. Thanks for the good service to Europe. They are lovely. Thanks, Gloria 08-19-15
Thanks for everything. You did, indeed, treat the box like a "gem." I'm pleased
beyond my expectations. And, remember, if you come across another "little" item with forget-me-nots, I'd like to be notified. I like it a lot and I think my granddaughter will also.
The packaging was very meticulous. Best regards, Geri 7-27-15
L O V E this fabulous handkerchief. The small tray works perfectly with it. Per chance any more deco silk pieces turn up,
I would love to know it. Thank you for the excellent Customer Service. First Class!!! Joanne 01-09-15
Hello Nancy. Just wanted to let you know that I love the Art Nouveau Calling Card Case. It is really quite unique, and is in lovely condition. I do have to trim my business cards a bit,
as the case will not close if you put more than one standard size card inside. But to be honest, that's not a big deal and it is certainly worth it. Thanks again, Catherine 01-27-14
Hi Nancy, Just wanted to let you know that the package arrived safely and I simply love it !! You can be sure that this bit of history has a good home ! I know it is unlikely, but if you ever find matching pieces I would love to know.
Have a great weekend ! Alice 09-27-14

Hi Nancy, I just sent you an email and 15 minutes later the mail arrived and so did the bracelet! It fits perfectly and is looks great. I will give it a light polish to bring up the gold colour. Thanks again for everything. Annette 09-03-14

Hi Nancy, The red hanky arrived today and is just gorgeous. Just LOVE it!
Thanks! Beth 05-13-13
Nancy- I just wanted to send a note to let you know that the humidor arrived in perfect condition and looks just lovely in my husband’s curio with his collection of antique and vintage humidors, cigar cutters, cigar holders and cases, and lighters. Everyone comments on his collection in his curio and the faux staghorn humidor receives many compliments. People are always surprised at how heavy the glass is when they hold it. I seem to have become addicted to Ruby Lane so do not be surprised if you see my name again in the future. Best regards,Colleen - 04-23-13

Hi Nancy, 'Wow, what a find! Great items, great taste, great prices and brilliant, friendly service. Living in the UK some things take a great deal of time to reach me from America, this is not the case with Nancy's Fancy. Items are well packed and arrive in great condition. I will definitely be returning for more goodies - the only difficulty is not getting carried away with all these beautiful items. Really lovely, thank you Nancy!' Kelly - UK - 11-09-12
