Weekly Six: 2.18

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: The state that songs are written about, proud may she wave. With its taters and wear, this flag is ready to be someone's next Velveteen.


I love you, California, you're the greatest state of all // I love you in the winter, summer, spring and in the fall // I love your fertile valleys; your dear mountains I adore // I love your grand old ocean and I love her rugged shore.






2: The deep, velvety hues of this rug demands prime floor (or wall) space. Not to mention its regal subject and epic landscapes--its something of a dream come true.



3: Free people does it again--this sweet chambre & lace apron shirt will bring Spring early to your closet. With its playful details and feminine lines, it makes us want to go pick some wildflowers!




4: Sliver and gold--both are our friends! We are just loving these delicate details. With their earthy inspirations of feathers and arrowheads, they will keep you grounded while adding an element of wild to your style.







5: Suspended in time, these old style suspenders will keep your pants and you up with the times. Take em out dancing, to the office and off to a wedding--they won't let you down.



6: Have letters, will travel. Whether surrounded by cell towers or in a secluded cabin far from technology's reach, this Hermes Rocket typewriter will work equally well. It's the laptop travel version, too, for easy movement to and fro.





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.



The Weekly Six

Before we open our doors for the week, check out our top six picks. We are constantly updating our inventory, so we want to keep you in the loop of the new things coming in. So today we bring you:

1. A wooly, mammoth blanket! A perfect snuggle buddy for our impeding April showers, or a great blanket to lay amongst the May flowers.


2. Let me see you peacock. Necklace that is. If you like drinking wine at Kelsey Winery, you'll love this long, sterling silver pendant!




3. Time to bring Spring inside with fresh flowers and brighter colors. Meshing the two together, this oil painting keeps us smiling with its pleasant, wild strokes!


4. The time has come to take your meals outdoors and enjoy the sunshine! This glass table is the perfect garden accompaniment (the geese make great picnic guests).





5. This Free People jumper stopped us in our tracks. Pockets, lace razorback and flowy pants all in one? Yes please!





6. We always need little vases around after picking wildflowers and greens from the neighborhood. A repurposed salt & pepper shaker and silver sugar container work amazingly: whether imperfect or perfect, they are just perfect.



The Weekly Six (and then some)

This last weekend we had the store covered so a few of us hit the road. We were in a small car with a limited amount of cash and we wanted to make our trip a stretch. We stopped at a few yard sales, then a few estate sales, a gift shop at the San Miguel Mission (hot tip we got)--it was tiny yet charming! By this time we were already skipping with excitement (that is the rule), and we thought that we better hit the road and get some miles in so we didnt wake up an hour from home.

As we got to the San Jose area we hit up some of our personal faves: Ralph, Betsey, Pinkberry, and Free People! With a dose of inspiration, we then headed to Ikea for a few accessories.

To save money, we were able to crash at our friend Stacy's mom's house. We were only 8 minutes away from Alameda Flea!! What a hoot! We loved everything we bought and it was all smalls.

A homemade vinatage redwood memory, super cute concrete mushrooms, porcelin dogs, a lil' espresso set, travel goods, and a flowy summer dress...perfection.

We have been coveting the rugs above for a while. They are pre-war gypsy rugs from the Balkan Islands. The colors are so vibrant and the workmanship is amazing! These rugs cost a bit more than we usually spend, but if anything warrented a leap of faith, these rugs certainly did! We have one in red with large flowers that is finished out with fringe, it is priced at $575. The second one is a beautiful off white and taupe and is highlighted with a chartreuse garland and deep ruby flowers, it is priced at $495. Compared to what is on the market in a lot of reproduction stores, these originals are a no-brainer.

Last but not least is this multi-colored handmade blanket/bed cover. After scoping out the new Free People store, we are not afraid of color! Very 70's and very rare! I bet alot of you either had one or had a grandma that tried to hand one off to you.

This road trip was very inspiring and one for the record books--great company, great finds, and we met a lot of great people too!
