miss ruthie's vintage finds was born

miss ruthie's vintage came about shortly after the great meltdown of the late aughts. id just had a kid, lost my job and was struggling with how to be able to help my husband provide. it all started out of the sheer, simultaneous joys of shopping and vintage hunting. but, we neither had the room nor the money to aimlessly spend. id watched my husband build his amp business, first on ebay, then here on etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/strangeamps?ref=shop_sugg
i also have a few other friends who have built online retail, and thought i could give it a shot. i started on an almost literal shoestring budget. and, for the first year, every cent i made went back into it. i have enjoyed this journey, watching my views and hearts grow just as much as i have enjoyed finding things that will become a cherished part of someone's home.

    i met my aunt's good friend from her high school days when i was about 8, i think. from the first time id ever set foot in his house, i was hooked! he had the most amazing taste in furniture. he turned me onto the beauty of art deco, with small splashes of mid century awesomeness. and the occaisional modern touch. i love to spend time oohhing and aahhing over his latest finds. having been a fan of art deco, my husband's taste in mid century seemed a bit off at first. but, discovering the joys of thrift shopping with him, i began to have a bit of appreciation for 50s home furnishings. now, our styles blended, we love to thrift shop together on a lazy afternoon, or even catch an occassional estate sale. you can follow me on pinterest where i pin everything from awesome kids things to food to design and vintage. http://pinterest.com/missruthies/
