Ruby Lane is an online antique marketplace with more than 2000 active shop owners trading on this e-commerce platform. Like many ideas that are rooted in lived experience, Ruby Lane was founded in 1998, as a result of the founder’s frustrations in trying to complete his own collection of 1950s tableware. His idea was to create an easy-to-use online community of shops, that would allow customers to find unique, sought-after items with ease and pleasure. With over half a million items listed on this antique marketplace, there is more than enough to choose from!

With so many categories of antiques and collectibles listed on Ruby Lane, it is possible to browse this online antique store endlessly. Visitors to the website can choose from antique bronze, vintage hats, carpets and rugs, antique jewelry, German silver, Victorian art, antique pendants, Steiff and fine plush, table lamps and antique lighting fixtures, and many more. Collectors can head straight to the ‘Collector’s Hotspot’ on the platform, where some of the most intriguing items are listed.

Regular shoppers can also focus on new additions to the site, with a choice between the weekly or daily updates. Hundreds of new items are added every day, so it is quite a job to keep up to date! And if you are a lover of antiques at attractive prices, you should know that several times a year Ruby Lane runs Red Tags Sales for 72 hours, offering up to 30% off a wide selection of antiques.

Every seller on Ruby Lane is carefully pre-screened by their in-house team of art, antiques, and jewelry professionals. The stores that join this online antique marketplace must meet specific quality and professionalism standards before they are accepted for trading. Ruby Lane runs a secret-shopper program to ensure that standards remain high over time. Therefore, shoppers can rest assured that they are buying genuine, high-quality antiques from this platform, and will receive excellent customer service every step of the way.  

Once sellers have passed the quality checks established by Ruby Lane, they must pay a monthly maintenance fee of $25. This first month of trading on this antique marketplace is free. If the shop adds at least 15 new items during a month, no maintenance fee will be charged. Therefore, it pays to be an active seller, continually bringing new and exciting merchandise to this platform! Ruby Lane charges 9.9% of the purchase order as a service fee to sellers, which is capped at $250.

Ruby Lane does its utmost to make it easy to find unique, collectible antiques. With all the checks carried out on sellers, it is great to be able to shop with confidence that the items are immaculate. These are all the reassurance you need to dive in and start shopping!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
