Started in 2008 by a mother-daughter team, Miss Ruth's Time Bomb is a vintage fashion dreamland, wacky accessory funhouse, and community cultural hotspot.
Offering 4800 square feet of vintage fashion for men, women, and children, Miss Ruth's Time Bomb has everything from hats to shoes and from swimsuits to prom dresses. Intermixed with vintage pieces are select modern retro lines of jewelry and accessories, unique small gifts, vinyl records, and vintage home décor. Miss Ruth's also has a large selection of quirky graphic socks.
Miss Ruth's hosts frequent community events, including their "Terror & Talk" movie and lecture series and their eclectic gift expo "Market of Curiosities". They hold extrememly popular semi-annual yard sales, where vintage pieces can be had at deep discounts. Their event space at the back of the store can be rented for parties and other functions.
Time Bomb supports the community through working with many local organizations, such as Carlisle Pride, Leaf Project, and Phoenix Assistance Dogs, and supports local high schools.
