About Siemers Rafter Room

Our Service Pledge
I respond to all orders promptly. Packing and shipping shall be done with care. I believe all information printed here to be true--to the best of my knowledge--and I pledge to you that the items shown are the items sent to you. Please see Rafter Room customer comments at the bottom of this page. (pre Trustpilot) and new reviews through Trustpilot at the top of my homepage banner in the box on the right.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking to expedite shipping on any item in my shop, the Insurance is INCLUDED in the postage cost for all Priority mail selections. I use a reputable third party Insurance provider to help keep shipping fees low on 1st Class Mail Parcels. Unfortunately I am not able to remove this cost from also showing on the faster shipping choices. You will be able to decline insurance when you order, which will remove this charge before you pay. If for any reason the charge goes through and you do not want the better coverage from this carrier I will refund the amount immediately after I am notified, and before your order ships. Insurance refunds are for Priority selections only.

International: I now ship to the U.K., Australia., and Canada as I am able to insure international shipments with the my third party carrier. Insurance is required on all international orders.
About Us
In bye-gone times, things that were no longer needed, yet still useful, were taken up to the rafter room to be stored. Children loved to play among the unusual relics on rainy days, a bride would sometimes poke and pull to find something special for her new home; however, most of the time they were forgotten for generations.

Come. Look through my “rafter room”. I have been pleasantly surprised by what was forgotten up in my attic; I am sure you will be too.

I grew up on a large working farm in central Pennsylvania—the house and outbuildings were built of native hand-carved sandstone in the year 1711. That is to say, I grew up appreciating the fine, old things around me. I no longer live in my childhood home, yet I have never lost the reverence or the fascination for the things of yesterday.

I will be adding pieces as I can, so come back often, as this is a large attic with much to go through. My free time, while sparse, will be dedicated to "treasure trove-ing" the Rafter Room. If you would like to make an offer on something let me know. No reasonable offer will be ignored.

I just picked up these beautiful brooches from my PO box. They are truly lovely and I assure you they will be treasured and loved! You are certainly a very gracious communicator; lovely email and sweet personal note on the invoice. Thank you for a great experience shopping on Ruby Lane. I hope you're having a pleasant day.

I am so impressed with the beautiful green moss agate brooch that I received from Siemers Rafters. It was packaged beautifully, and arrived timely, with good communication from the seller, Margaret Siemers. I look forward to doing business with Ruby Lane/Siemers Rafter Room again. Thanks so much!

THIS CUSTOMER THOUGHT OUR SERVICE WAS SO NICE, SHE WROTE ABOUT IT TWICE!

I received the absolutely beautiful green moss agate (jade) brooch.
Mere words cannot describe how pleased I am with it, and the way you packaged it for shipping.
The little tag, and the little lacy bag are a nice touch.
You really deliver the goods in a classy way.

Thanks again,

I bought many items in 2010 on Ruby Lane with many shops delivering excellent service. Her service and packaging were over the top A+ even though I spent very little money.

The last items that we ordered from you arrived last week and they are beautiful. Even nicer than they looked in the photos.

Thank you very much.

Thank you for shipping the item so quickly. I mentioned to my daughter, who is now 32 years old, about these stencils and how my mother used to use them every Christmas during my early childhood. She was real enthusiastic about them, so I am glad you had them, and I could get them for her and her family.

I look forward to doing business again with you.

The items (Krementz Rolled Gold) are so beautiful. I am glad I got the pin with the earrings. The lovely cloth bag seems like something very special too.

Thank you for your loving care.

Thank you for checking. YES, we got them yesterday. They are lovely. I had purchased a couple of other matching pieces from another place and they look wonderful together.

I got home from Florida and it was like Christmas in July. Thanks for taking great care to ship and let me receive them after we returned. It will be very appropriate to have something lovely and old for serving dishes.

Many Thanks!

Thank you for your kind replies,I have already received the treasure. I am just thrilled to have a collection of things from the past, most of them unique and one-of-a-kind, such as the little coin purse I purchased from you, which I must say is simply a delight to look at. The artistry from by-gone years is certainly something to be appreciated. Thank you so much, it has been a pleasure. God bless you and your family.

BEST to you all-ways!!!
