It is here, and it is wonderful. This being my first purchase via Ruby Lane, I am wondering if there is a process to leave a review? Here is my review for you: I am so very pleased with my bracelet! I have never seen one quite like it, and the price was much more reasonable that I could believe. It arrived quickly, was beautifully packaged, and has has proudly taken it's place in my herd of bangles. I will be back for more! Cheers, Kate

It is beautiful and has completely exceeded my expectations. My

always "Center Stage" ; )
Thanks as well for taking such great care in packaging it up and
sending it off to me so quickly. I hope to do business with you

Thanks again for being a great experience on Rubylane.
Have an excellent week-end.

Hi Marianne,
The shakers arrived today safe and sound. Thanks for the great packing job to keep them safe during transit. I want to use these daily. What do you recommend for the tarnish? I'm not sure If I should use them with the tarnish in place, however, If I remove it, could it affect value? Thanks,
George

The tops are sterling, I assume. Take them off and use a good but gentle silver polish. I like Twinkle or Hagerty's Liquid. DO NOT USE TARNEX!!! It may take a few applications if they are severely tarnished. Be gentle. Use a soft sponge for application (Twinkle comes with its own) after wash thoroughly and shine with a soft cloth (old cotton diapers are great for this). Enjoy your beautiful salt and peppers.

Thanks for the email. We look forward to adding Wing Commander to our

in our collection.

Thanks, Marianne, my Copco pan arrived today in beautiful condition. My little grands are going to be so happy with their breakfasts from now on!
Susan
Thanks a lot! I look forward to receiving this little frying pan. I have one like it that I've had for decades, and now my little grandsons tell their mother that they don't want eggs cooked in her no-stick skillet. They want eggs cooked in the very same yellow frying pan that Grandma has! Very flattered, I immediately went to the internet to see if I could find one. So glad you had it. There will be some happy little boys.
Thank you,
Susan

Hi Marianne! I just wanted to let you know that the carousel circus glasses arrived just the other day in perfect condition. I was so delighted to find them on the internet after an extensive search. I have many wonderful memories of sharing ice cream floats with my grandma in her 1950's-style kitchen every summer. She has passed, but I have 3 children now and they love hearing about the times I had while growing up. We're looking forward to the new traditions we'll make with them this summer in our very own kitchen! Thanks so much for helping me keep my grandma's memory alive!
Sincerely, Andrea

Hi Marianne,
The spread arrived this morning. It's lovely!!! The color will be
perfect. I was going to save it until I bought the new mattress and
set up my Victorian bedroom downstairs, but I just couldn't resist
trying it on my 1920's poster bed upstairs. Looks wonderful with the
colors there too. I'm fond of all shades of rose.
Anyway, thanks so much for all. I haven't found a way to leave a
comment about a Ruby Lane seller. If there's a way to give you high
praise, please let me know.
Take Care,
Roberta

Hi Roberta,
Delighted to hear it!!! Sounds wonderful! Bates of Maine still makes these spreads, I've seen them in Vermont Country store catalog, but they don't make the pink ones anymore.
I have a personal feedback page which I have linked to my Ruby Lane shop With your permission, may I put your comments on it? I only use first names.

Hi Marianne,
,Yes, of course you may. I'm glad to have others see how happy I am with not only my item, but your great communication and service.

Marianne,
Thanks so much. Received the cups and saucers and they are in fantastic shape. This particular pattern is one my mother has owned since the mid-1950s, purchased while my father was sailing the Pacific in the Navy. She was down to one cup, using it with great care. This will be a great surprise for her this Christmas.

Hi Marianne,
I got the painting and it is very pretty!
I think the painter is Tatyana Lushnikova; I found a website with other paintings of hers and there are several others of lilacs and other flowers in a similar style. She is Russian and lives and works in St. Petersburg.
The pieces I found online go for a lot more than $150.00. I am very happy to have gotten this very nice painting at such a good price, though!
Best Wishes,
Rebecca

Hello Marianne ; it is arrived its so nice ! Merci. Caroline (Trifari Jack in the Box Brooch)

Thanks! It's arrived and is lovely. Bryn
Hi Bryn,
Thanks so much for letting me know! Just curious, can you translate the motto?

The motto is actually a joke. In German, people say "Aus heiterem Himmel" for "Out of the clear blue sky." The apron says the equivalent of "the clear blue sky," suggesting that the woman wearing it is the person, who does everything like magic -- she's the one who makes it all happen as if it just fell out of the clear blue sky. Our kitchen is decorated with traditional German and American kitchware in red and white. This apron is the perfect addition to our collection!
Thanks again,
Bryn

Thank you, everything arrived and is as lovely as anticipated! (Three vintage tablecloths).Very pleased with my purchase.
Best wishes
Susie

Marianne
I just received the ashtray - absolutely great! Please consider me if you find more (early Hall matchholders)
thanks.
It was a pleasure doing business with Chez Marianne - the product was well represented, Marriane was friendly and courteous, and delivery was prompt. I look forward to more happy buying!
Don

Did I tell you?
The tricycle arrived on Sat 3/3 just in time for my grand baby's Sunday visit. Out of a home stocked with toys, she always finds the new ones in about a minute and a half! She loved them. Scooter and swing set too.On a personal note, I played with these very same items in my youth (I’m 67) and my mother gave them away before I was married. Now I want to share them with my 21⁄2 year old granddaughter who stays with me every Sunday. I can’t wait to show them to her. Mine were bought in the 40’s at the “five and dime” – probably for just pennies. Amazing how you’ll spend anything for grandchildren!
Thanks.Ann

Hi, Marianne,
The four beautiful red-seat Duncan Phyfe-style Ideal dollhouse chairs arrived this week. They are perfect!
I have my dollhouse from the '50's, and it intrigues me that my Mother bought the kind of furniture for my dollhouse that she eventually purchased for our home. Most of my furniture is missing, so I am filling in the gaps. Thank you, Joan
Marianne, Thanks for the picture of your dollhouse. Do I send Renwal twin beds and kitchen table like mine? My house is not full, but I have a great start.
Of course you may use my comments! I did not mention that you have been the MOST prompt shipment I have ever received! Thanks again, Joan

Marianne,
The suitcase arrived today!! And it's perfect! My fiancé, who never really is that interested in the wedding planning, even said it was awesome!
Thanks so much for keeping me updated on the order status and for such a great suitcase! It was in great condition!
I am happy to say loads of wonderful thing about your service, product, and how nice it was that you kept me in the loop about shopping details. Etc.
It is so nice to have sellers that are that professional.
Thank you again. I think it may be one of my favorite pieces to the wedding!
Best wishes,
Stephaney

Hi Marianne,
I just wanted to let you know the box (with blanket) arrived safe and sound yesterday. I was away from home most of the day but when I came in, it was waiting in a nice dry spot when I got here. Thanks very much for the care you took when packaging it up…….we had an extremely stormy day yesterday and if it weren’t for your packaging and my mail carrier’s efforts to put things where they stay dry, who knows what might have happened to it.
It’s beautiful and just exactly as you described!! I’m positive it will be treasured for many years to come.
It’s been such a pleasure working with you and I wish you much success in 2012.
Thanks again so much.
Pat


I received the mugs today! My mother loves them. Thank you so much!I really appreciate everyting.
I am very excited and have been searching for these mugs.
My Great Grandmother had these mugs, and I am purchasing them as a gift for my Mother, who was very close to her.
Thank you so much!

My shopping experience was rewarding, as my long search for vintage barkcloth was over! I found the exact vintage barkcloth print--a rarity-- and it was real vintage fabric. It was in great shape--no fading or dry rot. The advertisement and picture were true to the products. But, what was even more rewarding was the way I was treated by owner, Marianne LaRoche. She was in constant communication with me even pointing me in the right direction for the fabric I wanted. I loved doing business with Marianne snd her company!
I love all the fabric, especially the forest scene. It is exactly what I wanted. And, the three pieces can make three curtains with the scenes the same on each curtain. I cannot believe I found this! Really and truly I didn't think I would ever find this fabric. I have a book entitled "A Very Modest Cottage," which shows curtains on windows using this barkcloth. I have been searching. Teresa

Hi Marianne,
So sorry for my delayed response. I did receive the beautiful percolator and it works wonderfully!
Thanks so much :)
Best regards,
Marishka

Marianne,
The tray just arrived and it's beautiful. Thanks so much.
Elizabeth

Marianne~she arrived safely and is wonderful~love everything about her~I wonder who made her.
She has such a feeling of goodness and peace~and such great details~her face~her costume and material~her sturdy body~I could go on and on but suffice it to say that I am very happy to have her here in my home~Madeline

Hi Marianne, Received the cocktail shaker yesterday in excellent condition. Thank you so much for your prompt service! Wendy

Hi Marianne,
Great news! I received your package and the percolator arrived in perfect condition --- thanks for doing such a good job of packing. Overall, the percolator is in very good condition and works just fine -- I perked some coffee and it's really fast for such a large unit. Thanks for everything and it was a pleasure dealing with you. I hope we can do business again in the future. Stay warm!
Richard

Dear Marianne,
The package got here today and it is in perfect condition. I have never received anything so well packed. Thank you so much for taking such care with it. I have washed it, filled it with chocolate chip cookies and will be bringing it to my daughter, tonight, to “Give her back her childhood.” We are all so excited! Thank you for this big “UP.”
All the best,
Lil

Hi Marianne,
I got it yesterday: It is just as cute as can be!! Thanks again so much!! (small paella pan)
~Laura

Hi Marianne,
I got it today! It is gorgeous!! It was a great transaction in everyway!! Thanks for the advise. I already have two recipes for my Paella pan to try:)Thanks again sooo much!
Laura

Hi Marianne--This item arrived safely. It has to be one of the
most stunning crochet doilies I've ever seen-& also the largest!
You have no idea how well it's going to fit into the decor of my
newly designed living room! Just one suggestion though: I had a
really hard time getting the package opened. I couldn't figure
out where to put the scissors blade & I was afraid I'd cut the
doily in the process. I think you should pack them looser & with
much less tape. Thanks!--Natalie
Thanks for making my first experience with Ruby Lane a great one :) -Natalie

Hi Marianne,
The blankets arrived!
They're beautiful!
Thank you again,
Susan

Hello again Marianne!
A late confirmation of safe arrival of that FANTASTIC brooch. A really unusual/interesting colour. And very well packed, thank you.
The parcel arrived on 25 November, so that was pretty good going, I thought! Well done USPS.
Hoping you had a great birthday following Thanksgiving, and have enjoyed a happy Christmas too. Here’s to a healthy (and prosperous??) 2012!
Thanks for your trouble and the opportunity to buy something so pleasing.
Kind regards, sorry for slow response,
Alistair

Hi Marianne-
Your beautiful Dru pieces arrived safe and sound in this afternoon's mail. Today has been crazy-busy and I just opened them now. They are each exquisite. The packing was the most elaborate job I've ever seen and the outside box was even wrapped! Thank you, Marianne. Our daughter absolutely LOVED the Dru casserole dish!
Again, thank you.
Judy

Thanks for being so speedy!
Happy Holidays,
Nik

Hi Marianne,
I received the package last night, the chenille is beautiful and I love the pin!!
It was a great deal and exactly as you presented it, very beautiful!
Thank you very much & Merry Christmas! Savenda


Marianne,
The doll came and she is beautiful and I am very pleased. Thank you so much.

Thank you and Happy Holidays

Hi Marianne,
The planter arrived yesterday, all fine. It is very nice! I might try it in the kitchen to root herbs.
Thank you!
Susan

Hi, Marianne,
The shaker arrived in perfect condition. Your packing job was superb! I'm very, very pleased with the shaker. It's exactly what I was looking for and exactly as photographed and described. I have a friend who collects vintage shakers and I'm sure he'll be pleased to receive this as a Christmas gift.
I was very, very happy with all aspects of this transaction.
Best,
Sara

Hi Marianne,
My wife, Linda, has had a great beginning to our anniversary. The coat is a huge hit and it fits perfectly!
Thank you for finding it and making it available.
Good luck to you and much health and happiness.
Sincerely,
Tom

Hi,
I did not see a place on the store website to leave feedback, so I am writing you this note instead. The tropical bird prints arrived earlier this week in fine condition. We have an original Turner mirror that belonged to my husband's grandmother. When I saw your collection of prints, I knew it would be just what we needed to complement our decor. My husband and I got them hung today and they look great!
Thanks,
Kathryn

Hi Marianne,
I received the bedspread today, thank you, it looks great & my daughter loves it.
Kindest Regards,

The horses arrived safely -- they are exactly as I expected -- perfect. They will be well-loved by my grandson. He will take good care of them. Thank you so much.
Dianna

Hello - I just wanted to let you know that the package arrived today. I love the broach - it is really great. I'm giving it to a friend and I know she'll love it!!
Thank you. Laura

Hey M,
Your such a incredible friend and not to mention packer. Took me a half hour to open. Almost wanted to wait for my birthday. Very exciting. You’ll be happy to know that even though you put fragile 200 times and the mail person still dropped it clear over the 6 foot fence, the puppy boot is in one happy piece. It will be a non stop source of joy to look at and always think of you. Shari

Hi Marianne. Just a quick note to let you know that I
received your package with the beautiful tablecloth. I'm really
tickled with it...it's splendid! You had everything fixed in
such a lovely way. Thank you very much. I hope to see you
another time.
I was just now looking at a
tablecloth book...Pamela Glasell's...and "our" tablecloth
is really big on the first, inside page! Love it!!!!
All the best until then, Gayle

Got them! They are wonderful. Just in time for Halloween!!!
You have made my day. Thanks too for the incredible packing job.
Happy Fall, Regards, Karen (Tiki skull mugs)

Hi, Marianne
My wonderful quilt arrived yesterday--super service from you, as always. I really love it! It looks "just right" draped over the back of a sand-colored chair that needed some pizzazz. The quilt gives it just that. Not only do I like the cheery quilt itself, but having its creators' tag attached is very special.
Another "as always" from you: a clean, fresh, exactly-as-described item. Many thanks, Marianne.
Best wishes to you,
Nancy

Marianne,
I forgot to thank you for the fabric, it is perfect.
Lorraine

Dear Marianne,

Marianne - The quilt is safely in Rocklin and I and my husband are delighted with it. He immediately went and got a magnifying glass so we could look at details.Of course you can put my comment on your feedback page. I showed the quilt to a quilt history buff/friend and she, like myself, was very impressed with its quality and condition. Thank you again. Carol

Hi, Marianne

My wonderful blanket has arrived--yesterday, actually, but I didn't get to pick it up till today. (Packages too large for our mailboxes are delivered to my apartment complex office. As soon as the notice appeared in my box yesterday, I went to the office which had closed early for a staff meeting.)

The blanket is the perfect weight for the nights now and will replace the combination of summer blankets I have been using. It is certainly clean and fluffed and feels wonderful to the touch. Soft and cuddly with a very attractive design and colors. It makes me think of a soft, flannel-like
blanket--thinner than this one--I had as a child. I sure loved that softie .... loving it to threadbare! I laugh now as I think of my mother--who
never threw anything away--finally telling me it was time to let the blanket go. Fortunately, it was not a Linus moment for me, as the blanket became the cat's; she seemed to love it as much as I did.

Must tell you also how much I am loving the lovely, soft quilt I ordered from you some months ago.

Thank you for your loving care of the blanket and for your excellent service.

Happy (rest of the) weekend to you,
Nancy

Goodmorning Marianne, received package. Love, Love Love everything, such a wonderful job.It is all great. Have a super weekend,
Nancy

I received the lid today. It fits my pan perfectly and is the exact same color - thank you!
Marcelle

Wonderful bracelet!!! Thanks so much.

Hi Marianne,
We received the tablecloth and it looks great!  Thank you so much for
posting it.  It was a real find.
We have a small wooden four person kitchen table that has been passed
down to us and we've never had a tablecloth for it.  Now we do and it
is beautiful.
Have a great weekend!
Jack

Good morning-
I received the swizzles yesterday and they are fabulous. Thank you, Marianne!

Hello,
I received my "Marme" Little Women Doll today. The doll's condition is excellent.
Thank you for packaging the doll so carefully. Phillip

Marianne,
My package arrived 2 days ago. I am thrilled! Every item is just as described, no surprises or disappointments.
Thank you. Keep finding this wonderful goodies for us.
Melinda

Dear Marianne,
I wanted to say thank you long before now.......so please forgive me. The spread is beautiful { just like my very old one} and you, obviously, took care of it lovingly. I still can't believe that you had one. After looking for a couple of years I really was ready to give up! Life really is full of wonderful surprises! I love the old fashioned card you mailed with the spread. That in itself is a gift to be treasured. You sound like a very special person and I hope someday I'll be near your store so I can pop in and meet you! Again, thank you so much.
Love,
Alison

The frying pan arrived this week, just as promised I am happy to have it and you have been very nice to deal with. Emily

Hello--Just wanted to let you know the orange bedspread arrived
this morning. Thanks for the fast service. This thing must have
been quite a beauty when it was brand new--I especially like the
deeper colors along the edges, where there's less fading. Think
I may experiment with trying to dye it to regain some of its
original vividness. Will keep an eye on your fascinating shop
site!
Victoria

Got it today! LOVE IT!!! Paula
Great!

Hi Toni,
That's fun to know! Glad they'll have a good home.
I enjoy PBNs myself. I'm an artist, and remember doing them in my youth!" They're a fun collectible.
I'll let you know if I get any other "couples." Right now, my pairs are all flowers or animals.
Best,
Marianne

Thank you very much for sending it so fast. My daughter will be so happy. She is trying to do a wall of couples in the PBN's art. Big thing now for the 30' something age group. I will let you know when the package arrives.

Hello Marianne.
I received the caddy on Friday and it's perfect. I found 7 of the matching glasses during my travels to the thrift stores and with only 1 glass to go, I had to have the caddy.
Thanks again for offering it.
Take care.

Marianne, all your items have safely arrived.
Thank you for going to such trouble in their packaging.
I'm keeping one lot in their box until I give them to Carmel (my daughter) for Christmas.
And the Carmel by the Sea tea towel was a lovely and thoughtful gift.
Again, thank you very much.
I do hope your weather has cooled and you can safely enjoy the rest of your summer.
God bless - Denise. Carmel by the Sea QLD, Australia

Received the chenille...quite nice and description was perfect...if you find anymore chenille spreads in mint condition, let me know. I do not like peacock but rather the pink and purple florals, on white background, that are somewhat ornate. I have a full bed. Thanks...helene

Hi Marianne, I received the pillowcases today and they are

Hi Marianne,
The tablecloths arrived today and I thank you for your prompt and careful packaging, as well as for the $5.00 check.
I just love them! They are more beautiful and colorful in person, and I know I'll enjoy using them for many years to come. They are a wonderful addition to my dining room.
I will check back with your site frequently, and I wish you a happy summer of hunting and bargains.

hi marianne,

thanks,
lisa

Hi Lisa,
Thanks for letting me know they arrived safe and sound.
They were really favorites of mine!
I wash in All and Oxyclean, and I think what I used to finish spray on yours was Glade Fresh Scent Fabric and Air, if not, Fabreeze, but sometimes I use other scented linen water sprays when ironing.

Hi Marianne,
I received the pan yesterday, very well packed! It's beautiful and even bigger than I'd thought from the pictures. Thanks so much!

Hello Marianne: Your parcel arrived today with the lovely
bouquet of tulips, safe and sound. The painting is really
lovely, and I am so happy that I decided to make the purchase.
I love the painting, and I will enjoy it for many years to come.
And, being that we are both born of the same year, we shall enjoy
many years together. lol
Thank you so much Marianne. I shall return, soon.
Sincerely. John Jensen.

Hi Marianne
My cousin got the blanket and she loves it. Said it was very unique. Can’t get a lot of those baby blankets anymore. Thanks so much for working with me…..
Kelley

Hello, Marianne
My quilt just arrived and I LOVE it! Your description of it as a "wonderful soft old friend" is spot on. I adore its softness both in touch and color palette. And its simple pattern is exactly my taste. The quilt looks just perfect folded at the foot of my bed atop a butter yellow coverlet.
To put my joy in context ... I spent hours going through rubylane.com's 42 pages of "quilts" listings--three times over a period of several days. Each time I noted the possibles, and each time I came back to yours.
Many thanks for the lovely quilt and your excellent service.
All the best to you,
Nancy

Dear Marianne,
Just wanted to let you know that the coral bakelite knot earrings
arrived safely. They are really something! I'll get a kick out of
wearing them this fall! Thanks for listing them.
Yours, Sharon

I bought this 'cutter' blanket from you last year for this project, just wanted to show you the result, the chair is actually a sleigh (hard to see the skis and handle at back). The piece honours one of the early explorers hired by the Hudson Bay company, Samuel Hearne. If you come across other blankets like this, in any colours, please let me know as I would love to make a series.
Thanks,
Kate

Hello, Marianne! My package is here, beautifully wrapped (nothing could have moved a centimeter) and speedily shipped and I LOVE both items. The Descoware casserole is a treasure and maybe my niece will get it at Christmas, if I can stand to part with it. The little "Nancy" came through just fine. Thank you for everything, especially your notes. Will be looking in. Very best, Sally

Hi Marianne,
As promised, here are pictures of the first handbag made from the beautiful barkcloth fabric. I really do love the way it turned out. Hopefully I will get several made before the craft fair season kicks off this fall. And yes, you may use my comments on your feedback page.
Tanya

Hi Marianne,
The fabric arrived today and is truly wonderful. It looks
fantastic, and I'm sure it will make beautiful handbags. I'm
still considering one of the other barkcloths as well. Of
course, now I need to make room by sewing up what I already have.
Thanks so much.
Tanya

Hi Marianne,
I got the tiki mugs today, thanks so much for the quick ship!
Kind Regards,
Maria

Thanks Marianne for the prompt shipment. I decieded to stop using paper napkins and can't imagine a better way to go green than with vintage Vera!The napkins arrived today and are great. Thanks again.
Bev

Marianne, the package arrived on Monday ; I was out , so I picked it up at our post office the next day . You did an amazing job wrapping some very odd-shaped items !! The cookware is beautiful and in great shape ; the wooden tray is a fine example of Dansk woodwork , and I really look forward to putting them all to use. Fortunately , we live on a very hilly part of Seattle and are not faced with the overflowing rivers elsewhere ; barring landslides , I plan on cooking with the pots tonight . Best wishes for 2009 , Jytte.
Ps : look forward to checking your RL shop again.
Marianne, sorry about the delay in letting you know the package arrived way before Christmas. The cookware is as advertised , and I gave the covered casserole to my oldest daughter for Christmas. Look forward to checking your shop again. Happy New Year ! Jytte Simmons
You may absolutely put in a few good words from me. I had to laugh, even my husband was interested in it when it came....usually he doesn't pay any attention to things (what I'm up to).
He said it's in good shape, then had to compare it to the one I have.... Griswold pan, about an inch lower but about an inch longer/wider in size.
Cute story about your mom's Thanksgiving and you! My daughter is scheduled for tomorrow at 8:30am in a Madison hospital. We are 60 miles north of there...we'll be going down in the afternoon. The fun begins!!!
Again, thanks so much,
have a blessed Christmas & New Year
Sandy

Thanks Sandy!
Loved hearing back from you.
I appreciate it. I love to know it arrived safe and sound, and I wish your daughter the best delivery service too! I just celebrated my 60th. (I was born on Thanksgiving that year) my Mom didn't get her mince meat pie or turkey, just me.
They say a good pan has all the memories in it.
The tradition continues, and, it is an important thing to pass on to generations.
Love,
Marianne
PS, can I put,with your permission, a few good words on my personal feedback page?
Hi Marianne,
The roaster just arrived safe and sound. You really had it packaged good. It looks great....my daughter is s'pose to be here any minute so wanted to let you know.
She is having their baby this week, cesarean, hopefully she will be scheduled for Wednesday..waiting to find out today. I have a lot to do before the baby comes with Christmas and all. It was a pleasure doing business with you....and BILL.
Happy Holidays!
Sandy
Hi Marianne,
The Christmas tablecloths arrived today and they are beautiful. Thank you very
much and we will meet again.
Happy Holidays, diane

I got the quilt yesterday and really think it's great. Thanks for everything. Veta

The package arrived today. My Mother will be so pleased when she comes home from the hospital to see the bedspread she has been looking for over a period of years.

Christine Duckett-Brown

The cookbook arrived several days ago and I am sorry I am just now getting to e-mail you. I am just thrilled. I had this book in loose-leaf form as a newlywed. In the 70's I used the cake recipes in this book for the basis of the decorated cakes I made for people. (birthday, wedding, etc.) However, fourteen years ago I lost my book in a major move and missed using it. This was one of my favorite cookbooks, and now, thanks to you, I have an old friend back.
Thank you also, for a cookbook in excellent condition as you had promised.
Thanks and best wishes,
Charity

Hi Marianne -
clip arrived yesterday. Beautiful! Better even than the photo. Do you wrap everybody's packages in ribbon? Very nice personal touch!
Happy Bastille Day!
Kathy

thank you for responding promptly, and yes i did buy a knife from you last year. i use it every day at work and makes me delicious food! i saw that you had another sabatier in very nice condition, so i had to sieze the oppurtunity. thanks again and ill let you know how it works when i recieve it. Pleasure as always to do business with you!-jesse
Hi Jesse,
Great to hear back from you!
Thanks for the paypal. I'll mail out tomorrow.
Happy to hear about your first knife, and hope you'll have a fine time with this one too.
Would you mind if I added your kind words to my own feedback page?
Also, just curious, what restaurant do you cook for? I have good friends in SF, and would be happy to recommend your establishment to them.
Best!
Marianne

The restaurant is called Farina, its in the mission district, and we make fresh pasta, bread, and foccacia everyday. everything is amazing, the chef is from Genoa, Italy, which is in liguria at the north. the food is like no other italian i am used to, and very different from other italian restaurants. please send your friends my way! thanks so much. -jesse

Yey!
It works!
I am so excited.
I travel almost every three months and with airlines charging for just about everything, I wanted a nice carry on case.
Thanks so much I love it and hope to buy again soon.
Many thanks,
Mali
Hi Mali,
If I remember correctly, push the round locks with keyholes towards the sides. This should pop the clasps.
Try sticking your thumbs on the sides of them nearest to center of suitcase, Push left with your left hand, and right with your right hand.
Let me know if that works.
Best,
Marianne

Hello Marianne
I just receieved my order
But, I have a problem...how do I open the cases?


Marianne,
It arrived just before the weekend and looks great. I cleaned it up a little, re-seasoned it a couple of time and let it rest over the weekend. Fixed a great omelet in it this morning. It was a breeze because it was much more non-stick than any non-stick you can think of. Slid it around, lifted the edges for the uncooked portions to fill under, eased into the open pre-heated broiler of the toaster oven, got it where I wanted, put a crease at one third, folded and then inverted it over onto the plate. Perfect triple fold omelet with a soft, but cooked interior, and a light golden flecked exterior. Great pan!!
Thanks,

Hi Marianne,
The bowls arrived today in perfect condition. Thank you so much for your careful packaging.
Roxi.
Hi Roxi,
Glad to hear they arrived safe and sound! May I add your kind words to my personal feedback page?
Oh yes - please do. I can't tell you how disappointed I have been with the cracked, chipped, and broken items Ebay listers have unabashedly sent to me. I am so pleased with my experience dealing with a professional shop at Ruby Lane. I'll be back! : )

Hi, Got the spreads today! Thank you very much. They are both
very pretty. Pic didn't do them justice. Will have lot of fun
crafting with these. Thanks again, Polly

GOOD MORNING MARIANNE--THE 3 BEDSPREADS ARRIVED--YEA--THEY ARE SO
BEAUTIFUL---IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT--NOW I SEE THIS ONE WHICH I
WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ALSO. JACQUE

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Mom gave me this book on my 11th birthday, well I'm 45 now. And, it was stolen with everything else I had in storage. On the grand scale of things, people are what really matters in the end. But, it will be nice to have the book back as it will serve as a reminder of my Mom and my heritage.

Good afternoon…..package arrived at work this week, I was not there, so one of my friend brought it to me today. Everything is WONDERFUL…..especially the bowls, what memories they bring back. The linens are delightful as well. Thanks again for everything, Michele

Hi Marianne,
Just a quick note to let you know that the Holly Hobbie bedspreads arrived today. They are absolutely gorgeous!! Thanks so much for your quick communication and delivery. My Holly Hobbie collection for my daughter is slowly beginning to grow - I don't know who is the bigger Holly Hobbie fan - I suspect it might be me!!
Thanks again,
Kind regards,

Hi Marianne,
Received these fine knives earlier in the week but have only now had time to sit down and write a thank you about them. Unless I've completely overlooked it, there's no way to leave feedback of any kind at Ruby Lane, so this will have to suffice. Needless to say, I'm very happy with them and with our entire transaction.
All the best,
Ralph

Marianne, the suitcases are here and ready for new travels ...
Thank you very much for the solid package.

Wow -- got it yesterday -- on the bed today -- terrific! My wife
is very much impressed with the spread.
If I could find a place to make a public comment on your fine
service, I would be glad to do it.

Hi Marianne, Received the tiki today! Love it! Perfect addition to my collection. Take care Aloha, Renee

Marianne, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for both the wonderfully beautiful & warm blanket and your patience. As I said before, this was my first experience purchasing this way...from now on I'll be using PayPal! And mystery solved...the check came back returned. I guess I had the wrong address. Anyway, I'll be in touch soon to buy more!
My thanks, again, Theresa

Marianne, Thank you so much for my new Dansk piece.
It was very well packed. It looks more than perfect
in my kitchen. Thanks again, Nancy

Hi Marianne
The 'cats' arrived and they are absolutely gorgeous; and packed like Fort Knox! My daughter wants them, haha. Thanks very much...Im so happy with them.
Belinda

Hi Marianne - well parcel arrived and they are sooooooooooooo lovely. I adore the raspberry one the most - it is the loveliest colour I have ever seen!!! I am going to have much fun making these up into patchwork quilts!!!
Best wishes - trace :0)

Marianne,
I just wanted to let you know that I received the drapes and am very happy with them, Thanks for washing them they smell nice and fresh.
Best Regards,
Karen

Marianne,
Received the knife today. Very nice and undamaged but how could it possibly get damaged with that extraordinary packing job?
Cheers,
Clifton.

Dear Marianne:
See, I told you we had the worst P.O. - I am just going to have to find other avenues for delivery from this point forward. I see they state they tried to deliver yesterday and left a notice (what a bunch of baloney) and will try to redeliver (well, they didn't try today and again, no notice left) & I have been home all week sick so haven't stepped foot out of the house. I will try to send someone to pick up for me (with my I.D.) but don't know if that will work either as the last time I went into our P.O. trying to locate a package they claimed they tried to deliver, they wouldn't even help me because they said they needed the notice they left in my mailbox and of course, they hadn't - - even went to the Supervisor who did nothing and the package got sent back.

Oh, well . . . . .hopefully, it isn't on its way back to you.

Thanks for the help.

Emily

My neighbor just GOT IT for me - thanks, Marianne. As always, it's absolutely a BEAUT! & smells so fresh - thanks for washing.

We are all just thoroughly disgusted with our local Post Office . . . oh, well . . . .

Thanks again, Marianne; especially for giving me the confirmation number; apparently, if she didn't have that with her, she wouldn't have been given the package, so I thank you.

Marianne, have a wonderful weekend & take care.

Emily

Hi Marianne,
The spread arrived today and it is just divine. I was hard pressed to find the marks you mentioned – in fact I still haven’t found them. It’s my first Hoffman and wow it’s special.
Thanks again, it has been a pleasure.
Sharon

Dear Marianne:
The tablecloth arrived a few days ago but I was away. It is another beauty - I thank you!
I will have to take another look through your shop real soon!!!
Thanks again & take care, Marianne.

Marianne
I got the book today(Vincent and Mary Price cookbook) and it looks great. My daughter will be thrilled and very surprised to have her own copy. Thanks for all your help.

I thought that you had excellent pictures on your
site, but they do not do the linen justice. It is
exquisite - I am so pleased that I was able to find
such a unique gift item - you went above and beyond,
the piece looks new, you kept me informed every step
of the way and you delivered - with so many stores and
choices to select from, you have made it easy for me.
I'll look at your stuff first as you have set
yourself apart, by virtue of quality, communication
and follow through, from the endless choices available
on-line. Thank you again, I am certain we will do
business in the future.
With much appreciation,
Mike.

We received our Treasure Island glasses today.
They arrived in perfect condition and we are thrilled.
Thank you so much for packing them so carefully to
ensure their safe delivery. We will enjoy them for
many years to come, I'm sure.
-Doug and Melissa Miller

I got the quilt. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
Thanks again,
Allyson

Hi Marianne,
Thanks so much for your kind words and for the information. The
bedspread is beautiful on my bed. You are welcome to use my words in
your feedback page. Ruby Lane is great place and site. So many nice,
helpful people, like yourself! It's such a pleasure.
Thank you and take care,
Keith

Hi Marianne,
I just wanted to let you know your article about chenille
bedspreads was fantastic! How impressive. I've printed a copy to
keep for future reference. Could you give me an estimate of about
when the bedspread I purchased from you was made?
I misplaced your direct email address, so I hope you get this.
Thank you,
Keith

Hi Marianne,
I wanted to let you know I received the chenille bedspread. Beautiful!
I'm going to very much enjoy using it. I'm looking forward to reading
your article in Ruby Lane newsletter.
Thanks and take care!
Keith

The bedspread I bought from you on Ruby Lane arrived safe and sound and it’s lovely!!!
Also, congratulations on your feature article in the Ruby Lane Times. Well deserved!
Happy spring,
Karen

Oh, Marianne.
The fabric arrived today. I don't know what to say about it. Even my daughter said "Wow!" when I unwrapped it. It is just gorgeous. I must admit that it is the first type of barkcloth of its type that I've ever purchased. Like I said, I'm usually more the flowery type, but this piece...you were right. It's a piece of art. I held it up to the kitchen window and it gives the kitchen a whole new look. Very retro. You know when you just see something and it speaks to you? This was one of those times. I'm just so pleased with it. You were right on with your description. Diane

Hi Marianne,

I wanted to let you know how much I like my
bedspread. I have been very sick with an upper respiratory
infection that has been going around here and just opened my
package from you this past Saturday. I mean, it was like
Christmas. I had 3 packages from January that I had not opened
because I had just been so sick. I am very pleased with my bedspread and look
forward to renewing my older one with this one. I normally email
back to the shopowner when I get my packages or goodies in from
them and this is a first for me to not do that. Have a good night
and week nightowl. Voilee

Hello Marianne, I received my three aprons purchased from you through Ruby Lane. They are precious and they also smell so sweet. I love them. Most of the aprons that I've collected are from all of my elderly aunts, some from my mother, who passed away a year ago, and even my dad's chef's apron that he always wore when he slow cooked his famous T-bone steaks on the grill in the driveway out front. I only wish I had started collecting when my grandmothers were alive as I have none of their aprons. But fond memories of them letting me "help". Of course, they always wore aprons. It's a wonder way to remember the precious women in my life and womanhood in general. Thanks for the lovely additions. They are displayed in my beautiful breakfast room. It was a pleasure to have met you--Gayanne

I have never gotten more compliments than on your linens, Marianne. From the Multi-Color Yo-Yo Quilt to the Pink Chenilles to the Clown Spread to the Daybed Cover and Pillow Shams, etc. etc., every one I put on is a hit!!!
Oh, my, I know I have told you this before but your site can be dangerous yet wonderful.
I just read your profile and I never knew you were an Artist - would explain the great taste you have. And you're able to create and maintain websites - how wonderful is that! And your Husband is a Musician and Writer. Boy, you guys really are into the Arts - sounds as if you are a Perfect Match! I also never realized the House on your website was yours (absolutely BEAUTIFUL) - my dream as always been to live in a Victorian House though I know the cost to upkeep such a beauty would be astronomical (I love the Victorian Pieces from jewelry to furniture, you name it - if it's Victorian, I LOVE IT!!!) Who knows maybe one day I'll get out of this little condo and buy a house - what A Dream Come True that would be.
Emily

Just to let you know the blanket arrived safely today. Lovely and so huge,
and soft!
Thanks
Carole

HI MARIANNE, I GOT THE PINK SPREAD TODAY AND IT'S JUST PERFECT. . . . WILL GO BEAUTIFUL ON MY ROSE QUILT I MADE.

Thank you, received my Hula Hut mug today great addition to my collection.
Jackie

Hi Marianne,
Last night I went through your store at Ruby Lane and found that wonderful tablecloth. What a great pattern!
So, if you can mail the tablecloth and bedspread together that would save you a bit of packing (priority mail is ok). Or separately is fine also.
I also found your website and enjoyed seeing your available selections and your booths. You have a good eye for the unusual, and the quality is outstanding. The quilts and especially the chenille, are so rare these days. I saw at least 6 quilts and chenile bedspreads that I'd love to have, so you may be hearing from me again!
I love the picture of your home--what a great porch and yard!
Thanks,
Candace

Hi Marianne,
The order came this morning. I am delighted with the bedspread and tablecloth.
Thanks so much.
Candace

Marianne, What a BEAUTIFUL SENECA yellow Driftwood covered bowl. I received it today in your WONDERFUL PACKAGING! Wish all ebayers would package like you and like us!!! I will treasure this piece and add it to my yellow collection. THANKS AGAIN. I left positive feedback already. Let me know if you find anymore of this yellow color. You are a SUPER EBAYER!!!! Ann

Marianne,
I bought the beautiful Bates bedspread from you (pink & white).
It is absolutely gorgeous, by the way!
(Your bedspread was my very first buy on Ruby Lane.)
Thanks So Much,
Cheryl

Marianne,
LOVE THE CHENILLE BEDSPREADS that I purchased from you!!! I
meant to write sooner but couldn't so I wanted to get this note
off to you to say THANK YOU for having such quality merchandise!!
I love chenille spreads and I plan on purchasing more from you in
the future. I especially love the white wedding circle one you
have.

Karen

Hi Marianne, Vase arrived today in fine shape! Thanks again, Aloha, Renee
