Gabrielle Fisher, Owner
Stella & Ruby
How many years have you been in business?
How did you get your start and what was your initial inspiration?
My children and all the other moms looking for quality fashion for their kids.
What do you feel differentiates you from others in your field?
I carry hard-to-find brands and I have a wide variety. I feel that my store is what a kid’s store used to be: You can come in and always find a little treasure.
What do you feel gives you longevity in the Hamptons with so many options?
Being affiliated with Fisher's Furniture which has been in business for over thirty years gives me a strong connection with the community.
How do you positively impact your clientele?
We have a helpful staff and always try our very best to make the customers happy.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of the job is shopping for the store. This gives me my time to find cool and fun brands to sell. I also love seeing the joy that kids have when they try on a new outfit and fall in love.
What is your favorite secret Hamptons spot?
My favorite Hamptons spot is a trail in North Haven Point that leads to the sound facing Shelter Island.
How do you benefit mamas?
Having two girls of my own I know what it’s like to walk into a store and feel distracted and stressed. My goal is to relieve as much stress for mommies as possible.
What is the most memorable feedback a client has given you?
The most memorable feedback I have gotten is being told “thank you for bringing this store to our town and to the Hamptons.”

What is the best advice anyone has ever given you? Or what is your "mantra" / words to live by?

As moms, the day can escape us, what is your best time-saving trick?
