"Are you Philomena or Ruth?"


Philomena and Ruth were Elizabeth’s grandmothers for whom she named her store.  Their names convey the sense of community and tradition that is strongly felt throughout the brand. Supporting one’s community, neighbors, and friends through shopping locally and buying handmade has a special meaning.  Small town America was built on independent entrepreneurs and the community that supports them.  And many of the skills that go into the handcrafted goods found at Philomena + Ruth have been passed down from generation to generation..
