About Us
"TIME IN A BOTTLE" specializes in vintage and antique collectibles. Our major theme is Vanity Items: Perfume Bottles, Mirrors, Compacts, Frames, Purses and such. Perfume Bottles are our passion.

Recently we added Women's Jewelry and Retro Women's Fashions. We like fashion with Provenance, or a story to tell about the person behind the clothes.

We sell a doll here and there but mostly our doll section has doll accessories for your favorite Bebe. Dresses, hats and accessories.

Old paper, such as antique postcards, trade cards and dye cuts are also in our shop. We look for signed artists and popular illustrators. We enjoy and have books, and Lithographs as well.

We have antiques that display the hand craft work of yesteryear, such as items made of Enamel, Crystal, Porcelain, Sterling Silver, French Champleve, or Mini Micro mosaic artifacts from Italy.

We strive to have a little something for everyone. We look for pretty, fun and unique. We hope your shopping experience with us is joyful, and you can find something that will make you smile.

WE GUARANTEE YOUR SATISFACTION. We follow Ruby Lane's high standards for customer service and refund policy. We love our customers. When YOU are HAPPY we know we've done our job!

Disclaimer:
Unfortunately, I have to place a disclaimer on all perfume. Sadly, I've had perfume exchanged out before, then returned. Another came back because the old perfume was not up to snuff, or how someone remembers it. Therefore, I sell perfume bottles and some are fortunate to still have the perfume. Some even unopened perfume. I understand scent is a strong memory maker. Most perfumes change scent with age unless they are pure. I'm sorry to have to do this.

Thank you for your kind understanding. Now let's shop!
