Ruche Moves into Dream Office

Sorry I have been MIA lately..but I have a good reason! We just moved into our dream office located in downtown Fullerton, CA. This building was built around 1894 and is one of the oldest buildings on the block. Brick walls, high rafter ceilings, old vintage windows...oh my! The tall windows face a major street so we can hear the hustle bustle of the city. Finding a place like this in Orange County isn't easy..you've all seen the OC right?

The next part is furnishing and decorating..my favorite part! Looks like I'll be hitting every antique fair in town. My first find was this gorgeous table made from an old door. You like? =D (How about that lovely purse sitting on it? hehe )

If you happen to live in Southern California, feel free to contact us and you can drop by to try on all the new goodies! It isn't actually a retail store since we are still only based online, but you're welcome to come by and shop at the warehouse. Now that we're done moving, hopefully we will get a chance to post up some new arrivals this week!
