Miss Ruth was the soul owner of the online store Miss Ruth's Time Bomb from 2003 – 2008, however, she always dreamed of opening a brick and mortar vintage 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 a great location and got to work.
In 2008 their store was only 800 square feet and today they manage 4800 square feet of a 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.
