The e-Book Reader
I have taken the final technological step. For me. For now. I have an e-book reader.
I hesitated over this for some time. Was it simply another toy, an unnecessary gadget? After all, real books are not in short supply. My house is proof of that – they are everywhere. I haven't yet got to the point of using them to prop up table tops and masquerade as coffee tables, but.....

With so many web stores and products to choose from, consumers are looking for that little something extra. Many will only buy from websites that offer free shipping.

As we begin to prepare for the busy Fall shopping season ahead, I felt it was important, before the rush, to reach out to all shops – both veteran and new sellers - who are now part of the Ruby Lane family.

I was recently having a discussion with another dealer about Opalescent Glass. I said to her "Did you read the blog that Frances wrote about it last week on Notes From The Lane?" "What blog?"

On June 25th, 2010 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 June 30th, 2010 all of the proceeds from those listings were donated by Ruby Lane directly to the National Wildlife Federation, which is playing a major role in the rescue efforts to save wildlife affected by the Gulf oil spill. The total donated was $275.
