Ann Vien "Spider" Necklace

Halloween is such a fun time to get out the costume jewelry that is too weird or over the top to wear the rest of the year. This necklace and earrings set from my Ruby Plaza shop is by hard-to-find designer Ann-Vien, and features a huge spider to the side of the necklace with matching earrings. My friends have been borrowing it for their Halloween parties, but it isn't too late to buy it for next week's special… Continue

Antique Mall Etiquette

Hello everyone...I'm an antique dealer that sells antiques, as one of many dealers, in a large antique mall. The reason for my blog is not to be unkind or critical to our valued customers, but to educate shoppers to respect the various dealers and realize that all the items in these malls, are not owned by the same person. Think of an antique mall as you would think of a normal shopping mall....a large mall with many shops under the same roof. Within the antique mall, is the same…

Vintage Mannequin Tea Party!

"At least my accessories are all from the 1940's! And my jewelry was featured in the 1947 movie 'Out Of The Past'! (her nose a bit in the air!)

Care And Storage Of Vintage Costume Jewelry

I am a collector and seller of vintage costume jewelry. For the past few years I have purchased many collector books on the subject. I have asked many questions of local dealers, and dealers online, who I've met while purchasing jewelry, or through social networks.

There are quite a few differences of opinion in the cleaning of vintage costume jewelry, and storage also.

I have been told by some to use a damp soapy cloth to clean dust and dirt from the jewelry piece, then wipe again with… Continue

A Little Bit of Trivia

Gerber Baby Cereal-A Real Baby Food: When some U.S. companies began marketing their products in Africa they were unaware that it was a common practice to have a picture on the label of what was inside as most of the African population could not read English. The Gerber Company was not aware of this practice and ran into a major problem since the photo on their label was of a cute Caucasian Baby, oops!

Determing Stone Lithography signs from later period paper signs

The process of chromolithography is chemical, because an image is applied to a stone or zinc plate with a grease-based crayon. (Limestone

and zinc are two commonly-used materials in the production of

chromolithographs.) After the image is drawn onto stone, the stone is

gummed with gum arabic solution and weak nitric acid, and then inked with oil based paints

and passed through a printing…

A salesman's sample provides miniature pleasure

I'm fascinated by salesman samples. I picture a road warrior of yesterday with a donkey and a cart making the rounds to houses away from the beaten path. Or a mom and pop general store like my great-grandparents used to own in Germantown, TN with a catalog and a couple of miniature tables or bookcases.


I don't own many samples because finding room for my full-size treasures and the inventory for my online store take precedence, but I always check them out when I find them…
