This spring, Angela Sullins transitioned careers from an elementary school teacher to owner of Ruby: A Southern Tradition, a new boutique in Springdale near Tontitown. While the store is most directly named after Angela’s great-grandmother Ruby, her inspiration for the shop includes all of the special people in her life, such as her mother, stepmother, aunts, grandfathers, husband, and children. “What excites me most about opening this shop is that people feel at home here,” she says. “Women come shopping together and, before you know it, the room is filled with laughter and ‘small world’ meetings.” Ruby is located at 246 S. Maestri Road, Building 5, Suite 1 in Springdale.
