Ruth takes Urban chic to a whole new level

For those who haven’t been to Urban Attic in Rokeby, there’s no time like now.

Urban Attic is full of unique and surprising pieces for your home spaces or for yourself. This treasure trove of hand-chosen décor items, pre-loved clothing and accessories, jewellery, candles, plants, artworks and gift cards is focussed on recycling, Tasmanian- made and providing top quality personalised service.

Online buying has become popular and is convenient, but for many it has taken the enjoyment from the experience of shopping and perusing in a welcoming store which is a pleasure to browse in.

“I never used to be too concerned about what I paid for things. To me it was a case of ‘if I liked it, I would buy it’,” Urban Attic proprietor Ruth Braggaton says.

“My circumstances changed and I had to become less impulsive and more conscious about what I was paying for things. I now think about fair pricing and affordability before I buy.

“Over many years I have decorated my home and outfitted myself with various pre-loved items. There are so many good things out there to repurpose without having to accept brand new rubbish.

“You don’t need lots of money to look and feel good and enjoy a stylishly dressed home space.

“A recycling approach is far more financially and environmentally sustainable for us and our planet.

“Urban Attic is committed and will continue stocking pre- loved items as well as new options which are also fairly priced for the discerning buyer in these challenging economic times.”

Ruth and her popular shop assistant Ziggy love sharing the Urban Attic experience of their lovely store which is full of “nice things at affordable prices”.

Ruth’s motivation is sending people home with a smile on their face, happy with their individual and stylish purchases.

As for Ziggy? His motivation is simply maximising cuddles and patting opportunities through his exceptional meeting and greeting skills.
