Merry Christmas

Next time you visit little Ruby, you'll be greeted by Christmas!! Now being just a teeny tiny girl, there's not much in the way i can do to decorate, but these modest little touches certainly help make her feel festive.


A small section of beauts just went on sale today :)

Amazing 1970s Platform boots. 

Absolutely beautiful 50s Umbrella (Plain Orange on Outside).

Hi Rufus

Collecting vintage children's books and toys has become a bit of an obsession of mine over the past year or so. So as you can imagine i was overjoyed when i won this precious darling on ebay not so long ago.
I have decided to call him Rufus, i can tell that we're going to be very happy together.

New Jewels

A selection of new jewels will go on sale mid week next week. Perfect Christmas presents i'd say! 
Below is just a selection of said treats.

The Dumpster Project

I hate it when people have amazing ideas that i haven't thought of yet. 
This project by collage artist Mac Premo is fascinating. 
Have a look at the video below to find out more or visit his website

Skulls and a Porcelain Cat.

Some none related RB news.
I have started a new blog of things that inspire me and that i generally find interesting.
Why not check it out if you get a spare moment?

Autumn 2012


This 1960s Form-O-Matic dress form is my favourite new item in stock. The Form-O-Matic is made from heavy grade paper and can be adjusted from a 1960s size 8-20 by moving the little brass pins.
I have completely shocked myself by not keeping it.... If you want it, i suggest you come and get it soon before i change my mind.

Silk Scarfs

These 1950s silk scarfs are a true delight and are new in stock from today. 
Priced between £8.00 and £15.00 they are the perfect Autumn accessory, either for your body or in your home.

For a while now i've been wanting to do a little bit of rearranging in my bedroom. Now i have so many possessions that every so often i have to do a bit of stock rotation in order to fully appreciate all that i own. So upon my return from France i still have another week off work so it was the perfect time to get stuck in and have a play around. 

The two deer heads photographed last were brought back from an antiques yard in France, i saw them last year but had ran out of money / had no way of bringing them back. As we drove this year i had everything crossed that they would still be there... Luckily for me they were, and after some hilarious bartering, together with a pen and paper and much nodding and shaking of the head, they now happily reside upon my bedroom wall.
