Hi Vintage loving friends ...
Ruthie & Billy B here ... we would like to properly introduce ourselves!
We are blessed to live in Camarillo Heights in a Historical old Spanish home built in 1929. Our home is filled with beloved vintage treasures that Ruthie has curated over the past 30 years. Our style? Well, it is somewhere between French country farmhouse, English pub, Old World Euro and whimsical Ojai retreat ... eclectic is an understatement!
For instance, our favorite old French bar hutch, now filled with adult beverage bottles, was actually used as Ruthie’s son’s baby changing table. We love repurposing old furniture and unique “smalls” adorn our comfy abode.
Without sounding like a bragging resume….here is what we have been up to the last 30+ years:
Ruthie has been a window display merchandiser for major retail brands, hand cobbled shoe and hand bag designer, had a vintage decor business, does interior design work, costumer, and is the co-owner, marketing/promo head of a major Tribute Rock band (www.twistedgypsyband.com) as well as manages their 1930s AirBnB in Big Bear, that they lovingly and fully restored @theknickerbockerlodge
Her hobbies are growing veggies and herbs, French & Italian cooking/baking and scapbooking when time allows. Her favorite fashion item (for those who know her) are HATS ... a closet dedicated to cool, chic, funky hats!
Billy has focused on custom construction, interior and landscape design, been an HGTV/DIY/Discovery channel host and Executive producer and music promoter/producer. His hobbies are creating fun small businesses, mentoring others and vintage cars.
We both love bringing like-minded folks together ... it is our passion! We have had the opportunity to create and organize many successful large scale events including charity concerts, grand openings, a large Borderline benefit and tons of live music shows.
Surrounding ourselves with Small business owners is our greatest joy, sharing stories of challenge, growth, success, freedom and intense entrepreneurial pride is the air we breathe!
