Miss Ruth was the sole owner of the online retro and vintage fashion store Miss Ruth's Time Bomb from 2003 – 2008; however, she always dreamed of opening a brick and mortar boutique. Two of her obstacles were location and time. Enter Peanut and Bender. Peanut, Miss Ruth's daughter, and her life partner Bender decided they’d join Miss Ruth in her dream. They both lived in Carlisle, PA, and knew that the area would be perfect for a vintage store. So, in April of 2008, the trio found location and got to work.
Their first store front was only 800 square foot, and today, they manage a 4800 square foot vintage dreamland and community cultural hotspot. You can find them in the store, vending on the road, hosting live entertainment, and running all over the country hunting vintage treasures and bringing them back to you.
