About Us

Rhoda Brimberry
Owner and Co-Founder, Chief Picker

A long-time lover of vintage wares and crafting, Rhoda embodies the Loot spirit by infusing her clever wit and delight into every task. She continues to amaze her fellow Looters with her impressive ability to juggle a plethora of plates in the air. It’s not uncommon to find her perusing Craigslist, brainstorming new Loot Handmade offerings, and dyeing bucket-loads of fabric for a custom backdrop – all the while whipping up a tasty dinner for her family. When she’s not on duty, you can sometimes find her at a little hole-in-wall karaoke bar busting out the lyrics to “Under Pressure” or cheering on her Alma Mater, the Arkansas Razorbacks, with her intimidating hog call. Needless to say, Rhoda is the honey to Anna’s toddy.

Anna Crelia
Owner and Co-Founder, Chief Scavenger

The julep to Rhoda’s mint and fellow lefty, Anna is a beacon of style and elegance. She’s equal parts creative and analytical.  While sipping on a coconut La Croix, Anna’s been known to sketch out a perfect new furniture design and start construction all before the oven timer dings alerting of her finished key lime pie. She will belt out Taylor Swift lyrics uncontrollably while managing the books and can quickly style a bookshelf before you can say “shake it off.”

    Logistics Director

    After retiring from the radio industry, Weldon came to us to help manage our logistics operation being the excellent problem solver that he is. Since he's been with us, our warehouse is spic and span and our deliveries run smoother than a stick of butter.

    Delivery Manager

    Ryan is Loot's first and most loyal member. His tenure has given him the expertise it takes to ensure all of our Loot is cared for in transit. He knows our pieces by name and can pack a 24-Footer in his head. He's also the best furniture tetris player we know. Outside of work, you can find him shooting pool, hanging with his pooches, watching the Texans play football, and planning the next adventure with his wife.

    A joy to have around, this grandpa of 7 is always cracking jokes and keeping us up to date on all the local news. After retiring from warehouse management at a paper company, he has been helping us organize and manage all of our smalls and tabletop pieces. If you want to make his day, a piece of chocolate cake will suffice. And oddly, this coffee lover extraordinaire never goes without his caffeinated cup right before bedtime.

Our team is lucky to be graced with her gentle spirit and positive attitude on the daily.

  • Alyssa Hart

    Alyssa Hart
    Business Development Manager

    Meet Alyssa May Hart. Alyssa is truly a jack of all trades but shines in her ability to connect with others and make friends wherever she goes. We love that she moved to Austin from her home state of Michigan on a whim in pursuit of a creative career. She quickly immersed herself in the Austin community and started working at Loot after the many recommendations we received on her behalf. She is known around the office for her movie trivia knowledge, being able to pin almost any song to its scene in a movie. Fun Fact: Before moving to Austin, she flipped a 100-year Victorian estate restoring it to its full glory!
