About Us

Welcome to my shop. We offer unique quality scarves, cashmeres, cufflinks, vintage jewelry, and interesting collectibles from around the world. I will be adding charming new pieces and vintage Christmas decorations in November so please check back often.

I have removed most of my vast collection of vintage neckties from prestigious designers. I will keep them safely stored until that one day, when we will dress up again wearing ties, cufflinks and other accessories soon. Be prepared and view my favorite links, 'How to tie a full Windsor knot' video is great, with step by step directions. There is also a segment on caring for your neckties. One day, we will be back to wearing them and you will have an advantage.

Hopefully you saved some of those old 1970's clothes and accessories, the seventies look is back! Monochromatic colors are a real thing. Check my inventory frequently for some very cool pieces.

For all of us who missed traveling and adventures, start planning your dream trip now! Picture every detail in your mind's eye, research off-the-beaten path places, watch Josh Gates Discovery Channel programs, David Hatcher Childress on Ancient Aliens on the History channel, they go to some beautiful and thought provoking places.

Think about traveling with just a carry-on and a holdall. Make the most of a capsule wardrobe by pairing a great collection of scarves with your travel color palette. Take along a small array of different multi colored Artisan knit silks, cashmere, an infinity, a favorite silk or two, and a great easy care wash and dry polyester to quickly change from a day outdoors to dinner, a concert, a cathedral, museum, or an evening out. Topping your travel outfit with a scarf completes a polished look even for the must rugged attire. Scarves take up almost no room and can take the place of a necklace, save a bad hair day, look great around a ponytail, or be your best friend when visiting sites that require a covered head, shoulders, arms or legs. Scarves are universal and change an ordinary look into interesting, just ask the French. It is so fun to collect them on a journey as a constant happy memory.

At home or away, if you wear ponytails, or love adding a headband, select a smaller silk chiffon, easy care polyester, or cotton scarf to tie around your ponytail for a chic polished look, a pop of color, or tie under the back of your hair for a great head band. They look great in winter and summer colors.

Beautiful objects, and antiques have been central in my life. My grandparents lived in a huge Antebellum home in Mississippi filled with antiques and interesting European pieces collected during their many years and travels. My parents were avid collectors of Japanese pieces. My first 'real job' after college was in an antique shop off Union Street in San Francisco, Andre's Octavia's Madness, and, with the Internet, life seems to have come full circle with Ruby Lane. The hunt is my passion and my home and wardrobe show it, but I can't keep everything. So please stop by and wander my collections frequently, I am always adding something new.

Placing my treasures in wonderful new homes warms my heart and keeps me going. Every piece has a story and was once loved and needs to be treasured again and incorporated into a new life. Some of my pieces have gone to museums, set designers, both stage and film, costumers, stylists, all parts of the globe, and to homes just like yours.

I am always finding a little something out of the ordinary, or letting go of an item from one of my many collections, so please visit often and subscribe to my shop for notifications of new additions. Thanks for shopping with me, you keep me on the hunt! Be well and stay safe out there!
