Time Bomb's Newest Family Member!

Welcome Nicole Fiumara
Miss Ruth's Time Bomb's New Intern

Miss Ruth's Time Bomb is excited to introduce you to the newest addition to our Time Bomb family, Nicole Fiumara. She is currently completing a BFA in  Fashion Merchandising at Academy of Art University of San Francisco. The academy has provided the fundamentals in styling, fashion merchandising, fashion design, and a diverse art foundation. Get ready for our  Etsy and publicity photos to get an awesome face lift,  to see her influence sprinkled throughout the new store, window displays that will cause a commotion, and a vintage fashion show that will make Manhattan green with envy!

 Besides being a full time student she is also a licensed cosmetologist currently creating amazing looks at the cutting edge beauty shop, Lux Salon in Wormleysburg, PA. Nicole has been working as a beauty stylist for years and is phenomenal with color and creating dynamic styles for short hair. 

So as we gear up over the next three weeks to re-open our doors we're thrilled to have an incredible, creative, grrrl genius like Nicole on our team. While she is officially a student, we're pretty sure school is in session for the Time Bomb. We can't wait to learn from such a gifted person. Welcome Ms. Fiumara! 

Below are examples of Nicole's creative and unique styling work...

That's so Etsy!

This past Saturday I was talking with some of my girlfriends and we laughed at how Etsy has become such a phenomenon that its now used as both an adjective and a verb! Here is an example of each...
  •  This scarf is very etsy. (adjective)
  •  I am totally going to etsy these salt-n-pepper shakers. (verb)
So I thought I would share this realization and showcase some of Miss Ruth's Time Bomb's favorite Etsy stores. However, don't forget to check out our store first and be sure to use the coupon code "timebomber" to save 15% off your purchase. 

Of course we would include us first. 

Did you know that Mode Merr sold select items on Etsy? 

I really love her photos and the pieces are awesome too! 

Stellah has great 1970s looking pieces.

This is my neighbor's shop! She has the cutest Grey Hound doggies. 

Great vintage can be found here. 

This is one of our favorite Time Bomb models. She is also a girl genius at making jewelry! 

Our cutie dog Sanuk actually has this great collar! These are amazing:) 

You can see all of our favorite pages here!
