Who is Hello Housewares?

Tabitha Ruggiero is a mom, an entrepreneur and a lifelong creative. She lives in Austin, Texas with her family and two dogs. Her storefront and studio are just south of downtown Austin in a white-washed, light filled space in the largest artist complex in Texas.

"I've always had a knack for turning ideas into reality. Growing up in a family of creatives fueled my passion for craftsmanship and design but it was the discovery of terrazzo that truly sparked the beginning of my journey. Inspired by its timeless elegance and versatility, I decided to turn my passion into a business. What sets my venture apart? It's the vibrant choice of colors and the subtle infusion of Texas culture into each of my creations. I aim to capture the essence of Texas without it being too obvious, adding a touch of local charm to every piece.

At the core of my business are values of excellence and joy. I pour my heart and soul into every product, striving to create pieces that not only beautify spaces but also bring happiness into people's homes. My ultimate goal? To spread joy, one home at a time. When you invite my products into your space, I want you to feel that spark of joy every time you see them.
