Recently, while shopping my IPhone dinged that I had a message. Imagine my delight when it was a notice from Ruby Plaza that I had a sale. My very first sale – Yea! Check out the photo of my gorgeous cranberry foil necklace, now mine no more. I want to share that experience, but I also am hoping through this blog to encourage successful store owners to share their wisdom with us. I invite vets to reply to the questions that emerge.

It is widely believed that stones hold different properties that promote success, love, happiness and health as well as many other benefits. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you the benefits of some these stones.
The folk name is Amazon Stone. Its benefits are success in gambling and it is used by anyone who is taking a chance to ensure success.

We're into the exciting final segments of the baseball season and I couldn't help but think about the antiques business. Why? What could baseball and antiques have in common? Basically nothing and yet there is a fine thread that runs between the two.
While watching Ken Burns 10th Inning on PBS recently, I looked at baseball's heroes and the chemistry between fans and the objects of their affections and realized that the antiques business is quite similar.

I recently had a situation where my way of communicating caused me a lot of distress and some very real problems. I asked my best friend to read my email's and let me know what she thought. Boy, was I surprised to hear what she had to say!

I am just trying to make a living......that's what I heard a lady say at a craft show. I stood there listening (more like eaves dropping) to this lady complaining about the lack of sales and the "type" of people that come to craft shows. I was shocked, no wonder she wasn't selling anything. I stepped back from her table,she didn't acknowledge me or even noticed that I was standing there.

Yesterday, I found – and bought – my first Takahashi bird pin. After reading about them in Julia C. Carroll’s “Collecting Costume Jewelry 303,” I have followed their sales on EBay and have been on the hunt to find one. Locating valuable vintage costume jewelry finds is partly serendipity – at least for me as a newbie. It is also a matter of continuing education so that when you find a treasure, you recognize it as such.
