I am just the orchestrator--the conductor! My biggest accomplishment is my ability to bring together the most amazing people to create this vintage/junking community. I have owned & operated Ruby Rose since 2009. I enjoy road-tripping, glamping, being funny, flea markets, family, friends, & life's little moments.
Kim knows what Stephanie needs before she does. She's the equivalent to the M*A*S*H character, Radar O'Reilly, Stephanie's ESP radar. A native to SLO, she supports local like no one I've ever met--she drives & advises so many in her community. Everyone needs a Kim.
Heidy is steady, calming & has a wicked sense of humor. When Stephanie starts to spin, Heidy keeps her grounded & fills in all the details. Like her personality, her aesthetic is full of color & inherently orchestrated. She's the song to Stephanie's dance.
Betsi is our social media & marketing girl who contributes to the online presence & outreach of Ruby Rose. She is a Jane of all Trades & currently runs her own local granola business, Grrrnola. Betsi wears many hats & has a community of her own--we often find ourselves playing six degrees of Betsi Ashby. Her laugh is infectious!
It's hard not to love Nancy--she's our biggest cheerleader. An avid volunteer, artist to the core & cultured traveler, Nancy brings an enthusiasm to the shop even on the dullest of days.
Karen is quality. She has a great eye & intention for everything she does. Her knack for bringing talented, lovable people together, combined with her worker bee attitude, makes her an essential cog in our wheel.
Shawna 'Probie' Rinaldi
Our newest addition to the team, Probie is a Graphic Communications student at Cal Poly. She 's playful & willing to please--whether dressing her for photos, schleping carts at fleas, or indulging Stephanie on her silly antics, Probie does it all with a smile.
Stacy is the working engine behind Ruby Rose, she has her hand in the behind-the-scenes business action. A road-trip warrior herself, she can navigate the roads for Stephanie as well as she navigates the shop's dollars & cents.
Ruby is the namesake for the store, logo designer (at age 6), & Stephanie’s daughter. When not studying at Occidental in LA, she joins us at the shop. This girl is sharp, funny, & the best roadtrip companion.
...Then there are Kendra, Kendrahah, Jennifer, Taylor, Kurt, Jenni, Jessica, Kathy & others who work or have worked for Ruby Rose from time to time. They each bring their own flair to the table and we are so grateful for their contributions & presence!
