I recently visited a website that I think Green Talk readers would enjoy. It is called Ruby Lane. On this site are many vintage items including fabric, drapes, clothing, collectibles, jewelry, and purses. In addition there are antiques and fine art. I have only named a few of the categories since there are so many to mention.
Basically, Ruby is a web store front for many different store owners who are selling their wares. The prices are fixed, however, some vendors allow you to give them offers. The prices appeared to be reasonable too.
So, how did I venture onto this website? I am having an impossible time finding eco-friendly traditional fabric. So, I decided to browse their vintage fabric and drape section. Unfortunately, the colors of the fabrics do not work with my house but it is worth a look. There were some beautiful fabrics listed on the site for sale. I will visit this website again.
From there I went to the fine art section because I love oil paintings. There were painting in water colors, oil, and mixed media. If you want to look at sculptures, photography, or even printmaking, it is on this website.
There are even vintage clothes too. Someone is selling a vintage mink stole. Another is selling a circa 1950’s taffeta ball gown. Maybe vintage clothes are not your interest but you love collecting toys. On the website, there were listings for action figures (GI Joe), vintage vehicles (circa 1957 toy model Chevy corvette), and the peanuts gang (remember Snoopy and Charlie Brown?) just to name a few.
Go take a look at Ruby Lane if you are a shopper or a seller who would like more exposure. You will not be disappointed.
