A Vintage Mother/Daughter Bond

Miss Ruth's Time Bomb began in 1997 when my mom, Miss Ruth, decided to start selling her collection of vintage jewelry at Tattoo Conventions around the country. However, this was not her only plan, she was constantly collecting and storing vintage clothing and accessories with the goal of one day opening a real brick-and-mortar store. In 2008 her dream came true when we teamed-up and opened Miss Ruth's Time Bomb in Carlisle, PA.

I too had the vintage gene just like my mother and the two of us loved our store and the world we created there. But many of our customers were folks just traveling through. These wonderful people often asked if we had vintage for sale online. They wanted to continue to shop with us, but we needed to connect online. So we opened our Etsy store on October 11, 2009.

Since then we have enjoyed learning more and more about the magic of Etsy and connecting with our Time Bombers all over the world. We hope that you too enjoy our store and become a fan and a friend. Thank you for taking the time to read about our journey. We hope you love our pieces as much as we do!

Cheers,
Peanut and Miss Ruth
