About Us
Set sail with SS Moore Antiques on a trip through the past! We have a great selection of unique and affordable items!

SS Moore Antiques has been sourcing antiques and collectibles for over 30 years. Located in Central Pennsylvania, we have access to some great finds, which we will bring to our Ruby Lane shop for you.

We accept credit cards, PayPal, personal checks or money orders for payment. If you would like to pay by credit card without going through PayPal, we can process that over the phone. Just give us a call. If paying by personal check or money order, we will send you the total through Ruby Lane along with the name and address to make and mail payment to. International orders must be paid for through PayPal.

If paying by PayPal, it can be done immediately when you are in the process of checking out, because all of our listings are set up for that. If you need us to adjust the shipping amount because you have purchased multiple items in one order for us, please wait until we send you the total prior to paying. We are always happy to accommodate orders with more than one item in them, but Ruby Lane's checkout process overcharges on shipping on orders of multiple items and we must manually apply the correct amount for you. International buyers - please wait for us to send you an invoice with the total, so that payment can be made through PayPal.

Items usually ship within 1 business day after payment is received and sometimes the same day, depending upon when the order is received and when payment is made. Each item provides the shipping charges for your convenience prior to purchase. If you would like to see how much it will cost to ship an item, click "Shipping Info" on the left hand side of the item page. If you would like to purchase multiple items and want a shipping quote, send us an email and we will be happy to help.

All items ship with tracking and insurance through the US Postal Service. When you pay through PayPal, that information is accessible from your own PayPal account for the transaction, or from the emails that PayPal sends when we ship the item, since we use their shipping services. We also add the tracking number to the purchase order page. If you did not pay by PayPal, your tracking number will still be added to the purchase order page.

We have shipped thousands of items safely over the years and tend to overpack to get your item to you safely. We use First Class Parcel shipping for non-breakables, postcards, ephemera, etc., but prefer to use Priority Mail for almost everything else, including some fragile antique books, as it is not only a quick method of shipping, but it is also safe and affordable. It includes insurance up to $50 and SS Moore usually pays the cost of any insurance over that, unless otherwise noted in the listing, which can be seen by clicking "Shipping Info" on the left hand side of the item page. Postcards, ad cards and trade cards and other similar ephemera ship via First Class Parcel mail, the method that has tracking, with cardboard in it to stabilize and prevent bending, which is why they are in the parcel class. This also allows us to provide our customers with a tracking number, as First Class Letter does not have that option.

We hope this helps explain things for our valued customers, but are always happy to answer questions, so please feel free to reach out to us.
