In 2006, Mary was opening a flower shop and Mae thought it'd be fun to join her selling kids t-shirts. So they  started Ruby's Garden that fall, in the tiny storefront on Shattuck. It's been quite an education and lots of fun, but six years and two locations later, they're celebrating finding their long-term home in Temescal! Celebrate with them at their Grand Opening Party this Friday at 6pm, in conjunction with the quarterly Temescal Art Hop.
