The Holiday Junking Trail!



Our bi-annual trek is back--and this time with more! Join us on a trek through SLO County on November 8, 10-4p for the 2014 Holiday Junking Trail!


For the Holiday Trail there will be the usual Trail Stops--where each store curates its own collection of vintage and olds. Some of these Stops open only a twice a year, some are holding early bird hours, and several are hosting Pop Up Vendors with more vintage, flower arrangements, artisan gift items, etc. This time, too, several local businesses are joining Along the Trail offering food, caffeine, make-your-own terrariums and gift baskets, and added gift items from local purveyors. Shop vintage, local and get your holiday shopping accomplished all in a days' time!

We are hosting Wild Poppy Goods (Taylor Kitto) and Odin Bois Wood Co. (Phil), offering vintage finds and handcrafted wood cutting boards, spoons, and more.

More information on each stop can be found on the event website, Facebook, and back here on our blog (or email thejunkingtrail@gmail.com for questions). Can't wait to see you!

Go Small, Get Vintage (& win $50!)

Don't worry about cutting Thanksgiving short this year to stand in line to shop: avoid a people traffic jam, starting off the season frustrated and tired, instead of merry and bright. Sleep in the day after, get all dolled up, and go to small businesses in your area. Find a lovely for your loved one as you leisurely stroll through the holiday shopping season.


We are all to familiar with the hustle and ordeal Black Friday has become. Recently, we discovered a small initiative to take back our post-Thanksgiving shopping, known as Plaid Friday. Here is how they describe the concept:
The name Plaid Friday was conceived from the idea of weaving the individual threads of small businesses together to create a strong fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses. Plaid Friday is the relaxing and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday,” and is designed promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays.
Can't make it in Friday? Not to worry, Small Business Saturday (check out their Shop Small campaign) spotlights small businesses, too! In a season centered on celebrations with friends and family, we want to celebrate with our dear customers, too. So if you find yourself here in San Luis Obispo on Friday or Saturday, November 29-30th, Shop Small & Plaid with us. And to celebrate, every purchase you make here at Ruby Rose during these two days enters you into a drawing for $50 store credit! Vintage items already come attached to so much love, so spread gifts unique and local, Santa would be proud.

Follow the Junking Trail


Ready or not, the holidays are upon us, and with less days this year between us giving thanks and going crazy helping Santa. Plan ahead to enjoy the hectic shopping about to ensue, and we'll give you the local skinny on where the goods are. A few month's back, we participated in this collaborative trek with other vintage shops in the county, and are excited to again provide you with the Junking Trail! November 29th (Black Friday) & 30th (Small Business Saturday), take a scenic-yet efficient-tour up and down the 101, and bring home unique treasures for your loved ones this year.
