Ruby Plaza Shop: White Rose Antiques
Owners Name: Karen Slembrouck
A little introduction:
A love of depression glass & pottery soon led from collecting to opening my store White Rose Antiques in 1993. Being surrounded by Roseville Pottery, Depression & Victorian Glass, Howard Pierce Porcelain...a hard job but "someone's" got to do it.
Favorite item in your shop?
My current favorite is a small Howard Pierce Porcelain Hippo. She is only about 2" high x 6" with big eyes and a cute Hippo smile. She makes you happy just looking at her.
What got you started selling online?
Selling online sounded like something fun and maybe profitable to try. I started using a web publishing program and it led me to setting up my web page. This was about 16 years ago. When eBay started up, I tried that venue for awhile. When Ruby Lane launched Ruby Plaza, a friend recommended I try it. I have found it to be an easy to use, well maintained, nicely designed & professional market place. I'm very happy to be part of the Ruby Plaza Family.
