The Weekly Six: 9.24

Before we open our doors for the week, check out our top six vintage picks. We constantly update our inventory, and we want to keep you in the loop of the new things coming in! So, without further adieu, we bring you:

1: Tea time or dinner time, English dish ware makes sitting at the table a bit more sophisticated more even the most casual of eaters. These delicate porcelain are waiting to hold a turkey and gravy, don't forget to invite them to Thanksgiving dinner! 

2: Tribal inspired embroidery with a drop waist twenties touch, Free People does not disappoint! Pair with a leather cowboy hat and leather clogs for a comfortable school day or weekend of romping.

3: Die cut, Moroccan inspired lamp just hanging out and being beautiful. It makes stunning look simple, and will add the finishing touch to your perfect setting.

4: We have your mom's coffee table book, circa 1969. The Famous Photographer's Annual is a page turner- transporting you back to the turn of the decade and the years of free spirits and fashion icons. It's a true vintage time capsule.

5: We lay out the red carpet for you here at Ruby Rose--well, we lay out the turquoise rose runner (which we prefer to anyway!).

6: A folding table that doesn't look anything like a folding table, that's the stuff. Bring out on the patio for an extra side table for company or use as an apartment-sized coffee table (easily moveable for dance parties). If the detail on the silver tray doesn't convince you, the spirally wooden legs should stop you in your tracks.

Local Love: BROOKS Woodcraft & Farris Lighting and Electric, Inc.

Unfinished furniture for junkers-yes way! What has been a family business still is, although Chad and Lyle from Brooks Woodcraft have put their own spin on their store these past few years. Behind the chain-link fence are all kinds of antique, vintage, and gently used furniture.

The fun thing about this place is that there are so man eras and styles represented--indoor/outdoor, mid-century, newish, oldish, and get it! Also, part of the charm of their store is the stories and tid-bits to be learned from Chad and Lyle, as they grew up in SLO.

Located in the back corner is Ferris Lighting, which is invaluable to us antiquers, as they carry parts, lighting, and do repairs. And last but not least is Lyles love of birds, chickens, and animals--you'll notice his corner with feed and such. This comes from his years involved with 4-H.
