Ruby & Leo

Ruby & Leo is a very cool hat shop for both guys and girls, stocking a huge range of hats for every occasion. For men you will find stacks of trilbies, fedoras, top hats, bowlers, flat caps, panamas, Greek fisherman’s caps, boaters, deer stalkers, pork pies and the list goes on…. If you are searching for a particular style it can be sourced for you, though it would be surprising if you can’t find the right hat in this place.

Girls are also spoilt for choice with every imaginable thing you could put on your head from individually designed bridal headpieces, wool felt cloches, floppy wide brim festival hats, berets, pillboxes to sparkly tiaras.

The owner of Ruby & Leo, Victoria Henderson, is a qualified milliner and jewellery designer so she is able to create some great one-off custom pieces to match the colour and style of your outfit for any occasion.

Many customer’s leave it up to Victoria with her 20 plus years of millinery experience and regular up to the minute training in the latest techniques to design a hat especially for them.
Right now the store is undergoing a few alterations with the addition of a fitting room to allow stocking of a new clothing range. You will find a good array of easy to wear and stylish pieces with a vintage/boho edge and at reasonable prices.

This quirky boutique also stocks a great array of accessories, jewellery and unusual creative giftwear that you aren’t likely to come across again. A range of locally made handbags, earrings, wallets, crochet items, cushions, wall art, throw rugs  and many other home decor items just to name a few things. Every item is individually hand-picked by Victoria, who has been a Geelong retailer for over 25 years.

The shop has a very cool eclectic vintage vibe which fits in very well in the quaint Highton Village and with Blue Suede (Victoria’s husband Richard’s shop) next door it is well worth a visit!
