For many, the number 13 conjures-up images of bad luck. Few buildings acknowledge they have a 13th floor, and many superstitious people stay locked in their houses on Friday the 13th. But all of us at Ruby Lane are excited to celebrate our 13th year in business. And August is the official month we opened, so we decided to schedule an early Free Listing Day for all Ruby Lane shops.

For a long time now Google has acted as the gate keeper to huge swathes of the online shopping population. To appear on the first page of results for high volume search terms has been akin to having a shop on 5th Avenue in New York. And whereas the real world rents would probably prohibit most small business owners from obtaining the keys to such a property the Google version has enabled all manner of entrepreneur’s to level the playing field against their multi-national competitors.

My mother’s friend invited me to host the monthly meeting of her Garden Club. Not only was this an honor, but a wonderful opportunity for some exposure. I hand selected a wide variety of my favorite pieces of vintage jewelry, along with some wonderful vintage props, and set up a lovely display that was full of glitter and sparkle. As the garden club ladies strolled in, the “OOs” and “AHs” resounded throughout the hall! That in itself made my day.

On April 22nd, 2011 Ruby Lane held a “Green Listing Day” where all items listed on that day were only charged 10 cents instead of the regular 30 cent listing fee. On April 28th, 2011 all of the proceeds from those listings were donated by Ruby Lane directly to the World Wildlife Fund. The total donated was $308. Ruby Lane conducts several Green Listing Days throughout the year.

I just had to blog and let all of my fellow shop owners know about a great new resource from the United States Post Office--padded flat rate envelopes. Unlike the thin cardboard envelopes with easily split seams and no protection, these new envelopes have reinforced sealed seams and are lined with bubble wrap. They open at the end instead of the top which makes so much more sense for the items we send.
