"Dena Well put! Unlike selling on ebay I am confident that my clients trust the Ruby Lane and me. They know that I am a professional and stand behind my merchandise. I have to say that I still buy alot on ebay but sell there... I…"
"Michelle, I so totally agree with Dena. I was a silver powerseller for years on ebay.. joined in 1997. They drove me nuts changing the store advantages, how MY clients could pay ME, and all the rest of their crap... I said there has top be a better…"

My husband of 32 years David and I raised our 2 daughters in Denver, Colorado. Six years ago we moved to New Hampshire. I have been an Antique dealer for 30+ years. Before the internet I did shows from Houston to Chicago, Kansas City, San Francisco and of course in Denver. I loved doing shows but I have to say selling on the internet is sure easier on the body! I opened a shop on Ruby Lane 3 years ago and Ruby Plaza this year. I LOVE selling on the "Lane" I have met some wonderful folks from all over the world. Selling on the internet for me is a testiment to "you can teach an old dog new tricks!"
