An excellent place for college students to buy each other gifts and treats.. The Scene Ruby's has been around since college students were buying single silver gloves and red pleather clothing with multiple zippers. It smells like incense and college days. The Goods Through its many incarnations, Ruby's now sells cute jewelry, picture frames, party supplies and candles with an ethnic or vintage flair. The store has also branched out into personal pampering products such as fancy lotions, bath gels and aromatherapy kits. One of it's neatest offerings is called an "AromaFloria" kit: It contains bath gel, lotion, bath salts and a hydrator in a travel container.
