Welcome to Ruby's Retro City! We are Ruby Sue Roux and Mandi Barham and we're glad you're here! Well, Mandi is glad you're here. Ruby is too busy shopping at the local thrift store and looking for more awesome stuff to fill our shop. We've got to get that girl into shopping therapy...

You can't keep up with Ruby Sue, but you can read along with Mandi's life at our blog: It details what happens when a tiny apartment explodes with amazing vintage stuff, two rowdy toddlers, a husband in grad school, and a whole bunch of crazy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
We accept PayPal. It's easy, safe, and free. They don't give out your info or sell it. If you're not into PayPal, check it out. Questions? I'll help you set up an account (even if you don't shop at our store!) Just let us know how we can help.

We do our best to estimate appropriate shipping for an item. However, if we can ship it more economically, we will pass those savings back to you. Anything over $1 will be refunded via PayPal.

If your order is solely made up of fabric, the following rates will apply:

Less than 2 yards will be sent to the U.S. or Canada via the U.S. Postal service. Charges will vary based on the weight and bulk of the fabric. For all other locations, the least expensive way to ship is an international flat-rate envelope. I can fit 7 yards in one envelope for $14.

2-7 yds ~ USPS Priority Flat Rate Envelope $5/$11/$14
8-30 yds ~ USPS Priority Flat Rate Box $11/$26/$42
31-40 yds ~ USPS Priority Lrge FR Box $14/$33/$54

We ship on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. We sometimes ship on other days if our Shipping Manager (a.k.a. Mandi's husband) is going by the post office or if the Shipping Associates (a.k.a. Mandi's toddlers) are cooperative. Need faster or special shipping? Convo me and we can set up the details.

FREE DELIVERY for NOBTS, MOPS, FBNO attendees, or members of the NOLA Modern Quilt Guild: If you are a resident or on-campus student of NOBTS, or if you attend MOPS at FBNO, or if you attend FBNO or the guild, please convo me before placing your order! (I'll explain convos in a minute...) This way, I can set up your order without the shipping included. We can also arrange a delivery time and place.
Refunds and Exchanges
We want you to be happy! If you are unsatisfied with an item, convo me and we'll see what we can do! Each item we sell is inspected when we buy it, when we list it, and when we ship it. Due to the vintage nature of our products, some items may show wear and tear or have flaws. The product description of each listing will detail the condition of the item.

We pack each item very carefully with plenty of padding. We aren't responsible for any damage that results from shipping -- if this is a concern, convo us and we can add insurance to your item.
Additional policies and FAQs

To send a convo, look to the right of your screen. You'll see an option to contact me. When you do that, it opens an internal e-mail system for Etsy. Send me a note with the items you want or questions you have and I'll get back to you.
