Rhoda Brimberry

Co-Owner and Founder, Chief Executive Officer

Rhoda entered the boutique rental business with a background in Marketing and Advertising making sure strong branding was the driver of Loot’s fresh image. A graduate of University of Arkansas and Middle Tennessee State University, Rhoda has long been an explorer of new ideas and is always looking for ways to fill voids in the marketplace while keeping sustainability and community central to her focus. She's been a collector of vintage since a young age and a strong lover of design as she self-studied interiors for as long as she can remember. Rhoda combined her loves of vintage, good design, and artistry to create Loot alongside sister-in-law, Anna. When she’s not steering the Loot ship, Rhoda relishes time with her husband and two children dreaming up a family band, crafting and sewing, and making sure to stop at every estate sale along the way.

Co-Owner & Founder,
 Chief Creative Officer

Anna found herself in the boutique rental business after receiving a degree in Fashion Merchandising from famed Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Her experience in the fashion industry, working alongside Kelly Cutrone of People's Revolution in NYC and running the website for prestigious fashion brand OAK, shaped her design eye which is evident in Loot's impeccably curated collection of custom upholstered pieces and found items. When Anna is not focused on being a girl boss alongside sister-in-law Rhoda Brimberry, she enjoys being outside and taking advantage of all that Austin has to offer with her husband and two young children.

Alyssa May Hart

Business Development Manager

Alyssa is truly a jill 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. Alyssa is a mover and shaker making her way around town sharing the Loot spirit. She’s your bestie before you know it. She is known around the office for her movie trivia knowledge and 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! No stranger to rolling up her sleeves and taking on new projects, she’s got the moxie.

 Mary Holmes
Mary Holmes

Sales Manager, Stylist

No task is too large or daunting for this magical being we fondly know as Mary. She took on the studio coordinator position with gusto and has been kicking butt and taking names since her first day on the job. She’s the friendly smile that greets you at the door as well as on the phone. She can sew up some napkins while designing a new backdrop all before the day’s end. Mary’s the hub of the entire operation. When not making days brighter at Loot, you’ll find her at home spinning her own pottery, doting on her pup, June, and taking advantage of all Austin has to offer with her boyfriend, Chris.

With her extensive design and styling background, Melissa will take your event to the next level. If you are lucky to have her as your stylist, you not only will be able to relax knowing that everything is going to look amazing, but you will have made a new friend. When Melissa is not putting the final touches on your design proposal, she is spending quality time with her family and friends, treasure troving, and exploring Austin's restaurant scene. Newly relocated back in town from New York, she can't wait to take up gardening again!

Randi Reding

Design Coordinator

Champion of animals and even donning a tattooed pup expressing this love, Randi comes to Loot with a background in graphic design and photography making our visual content look super pretty. This Texas Tech grad and Lubbock queen knows every word from Titanic, buys too many books when traveling, has to swim in every body of water she’s near even if it’s too cold, and can only dance to 80s music.

Ryan Bomer

Crew 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.

 Ian Day
Ian Day

Warehouse Manager

We like to think of Ian as our jack of all trades making magic behind the scenes in our warehouse. He loves working with his hands and fixing things, so it was only a natural fit. He’s hard to miss with his ever-present bandana and his bright yellow sports car. Ian wins all the boyfriend points for frequently heading home from work to jump in to help his girlfriend with her pottery business however he can. This East Texas born likes to spend his spare time with his lady and their pups, tinkering with cars, and making his own kombucha.

Smalls Manager

A joy to have around, this grandpa of seven children 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.

Weldon Crelia

Facilities Manager

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. When this jokester's not on clock, he loves to hit the golf course with his wife, spend quality time with his grandchildren, and grill up a fancy feast.<br />
