About Us
We are Phines and Mark. Two long time friends who own and operate a number of online businesses focusing on our love of vintage clothing and antiques. We are on two separate continents. Phines is in Southeast Asia and specializes in the technology part of our business. Mark is in south central PA and our shop is in Hanover PA. We have been sellers on all of the major marketplace sites you've heard of . Power Sellers on Ebay, several shops on Etsy and a number of specialty shops. Our shop here is part of our goal to have a shop that features only our best of the best. Each piece curated for style and appeal .

We love truly amazing vintage fashions for men and women. Over the past few years we've sold nearly 2000 items worldwide. All across the spectrum of vintage clothing antiques and jewelry. We don't look for the most expensive items we can find, we look for style and value. Items from the major eras, the defining periods of style and character.

We focus on vintage clothing and antiques from the Victorian Era to the early 70's. Many of the clothing items we feature are hand made. The south central PA region is home to the Amish and Dunkards, of generational farms and people who forged their lives by the hard work of life here. Our items are dated by interview, internet sources and reference materials. Phines manages a collection of sites and sources to accurately describe the items we find. The guidelines of Ruby Lane, and its adherence to strict principles helps us focus our items on their significance. We use the wording and descriptors Ruby Lane recognizes and holds their shops to. We don't call an item antique unless we can prove it, or clothing described as an era we can't authenticate.

We make ourselves available at all times for questions, comments or concerns. We use technology as it is meant to be used. We focus on the entire process from finding unique items to the moment you open the package delivered to your door, and then beyond.

So who is Shamae? Shamae is a nickname and she is the visual image and muse of our shop.
