Retailer Spotlight: Ruth & Ollie

In this week's Retailer Spotlight, we are excited to feature Ruth & Ollie, located in the popular Carytown area of Richmond, Virginia.
Retail entrepreneurs Kat and Mike Liebschwager both left successful corporate careers to follow their passions and create more meaningful work for themselves.  Kat led the way in 2002 when she began taking interior design classes.  She opened her namesake design firm, Kat Liebschwager Interiors, in 2003 after learning the ropes working with another local design firm.  KLI quickly grew, and the husband and wife team decided Richmond was in need of a retail store that carried items for the home seen in shelter magazines or only available to interior designers.  The Liebschwagers opened Ruth & Ollie (named for Mike's grandmother, Ruth, and Kat's great grandmother, Ollie) in July of 2006 with a focus on unique furnishings, lighting, pillows and accessories that tell a story and create a warm, inviting home.
