About UsThank you for your patience to my returning customers and I apologize for having to close my shop last year to take care of a family member. PLEASE, if you see something on Pinterest that interests you but shows as not available, let me know and I will be happy to relist. I am trying to bring it all back but it takes time. Hoping 2021 will a much better year for us all. Remember, you can email me any time. I have been selling with Ruby Lane since 2008 and still regard them as a quality company and hope to remain with them.
As before my items are stored in a pet and smoke free location and should there ever be any doubt about Covid infection, I would close down immediately. I am praying we will soon see the end of this in every country around the world. I am longing to get back to Scotland to see my family.
PLEASE NOTE: The State of California now requires Sales Tax to be taken on all of our sales. This is not something we can control. Please email me if you have any questions.
** I sometimes remove items if my shop looks too crowded so please ask me about something you have seen that is no longer listed.
I am from Leith which is the port of Edinburgh, Scotland and have been collecting antiques for over forty years, now also specializing in jewelry from the Victorian period, and a few Georgian. I have collected Scottish Victorian Agate jewelry and Victorian fobs, chains - mostly gold filled, and silver watch chains (Alberts) which I also make into wearable items. Besides artifacts from Queen Victoria's reign such as lacquer ware, Mauchline ware and Tartanware; I have many unusual Scottish items. Once I realized I was collecting more than the house would hold, which I am sure is the case with many shop owners at Ruby Lane, I started to sell about forty-five years ago. I love to make jewelry from antique pieces and welcome inquiries about making custom orders from your treasured heirlooms. Why have something, perhaps a family piece, languish in a box when it can be made into a wearable item? My return customers seem to like my stock which is mostly from "over the pond" and I try to return from each trip with something new! Requests are welcome; I love the hunt - especially when on a trip home. Please feel free to contact me with your wishes. I hope you will return many times to my shop. All items are stored in a pet free, non-smoking location. SHOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN AN ITEM WHICH HAS BEEN REMOVED, PLEASE CONTACT ME TO SEE IF STILL AVAILABLE. I WILL BE HAPPY TO ASSIST *** Shop policy requires that any item purchased must be paid for within a reasonable time unless special arrangements have been agreed by the buyer and seller, such as layaway*** Paypal payment is expected within three days, personal checks within one week and held until clearance through bank. Layaway is available; please ask for terms. I hope to see you soon and stay safe. Janet
