It all started in a little green house . . .

e. ruthie designs/The Green House Boutique Clothing, LLC is a mom-run girls' boutique and clothing company located in a small town just east of Raleigh, North Carolina. I am the proud mom of three - the 5th generation to live on our family's Wendell farm, where we built our little green house.

My love of little girls' fashion began with the birth of my first daughter in 1986, and was rekindled in 2007, when our youngest was put into my arms in Nanchang, China. It took two huge extra suitcases to bring home the clothes & shoes we bought for our new baby!

In 2015, we began ordering for other boutiques. It seemed natural to turn back to China to source gorgeous clothing & accessories. We then grew and grew until we were assisting resellers in several states, and then blossomed into retailing our own brand!

Today, we source from ready-made and our own original designs, handmade in a family friend's factory in Yiwu. We take great pride in our affordable & trendy e. ruthie line  - named after my youngest, Eleanor Ruth XiaoYing. Born in the Jiangxi Province of China, yingying (whose name in Chinese hanzi means “Little Bright Light”) remains the inspiration for our copyrighted fabric designs.

Everything we sell is already in stock in our North Carolina shop - no preorders or drop shipping. Our goal is to provide you with excellent customer service, high quality, and unique designs!

Thank you for shopping small and supporting our family business, and for giving us the opportunity to share with you what hard work and big dreams can accomplish. 

Come on in for a visit! We're just down the road, at that green house on the left.
