Concepts Reno started out as Fine 'N' Funky in Tahoe City, CA in 1976. Founded by Ken and Wauneta Arnbrister, the pioneers of style in the Tahoe area. Fine 'N' Funky expanded to Reno in 1982, and was known as Concepts by Fine 'N' Funky. Ken and Wauneta's daughter Lisa Arnbrister inherited the business when her parents passed away in 2006, and brought a longstanding option for the most stylish and hip fashions for men and women in Lake Tahoe and Reno. Fine 'N' Funky closed in Tahoe City in 2019.
Lisa's daughter Sylvie Barbash grew up working in both stores and developed a love for fashion. In 2015 Ruby Casani joined the team, and brought in a new element of style. In 2021, best friends Sylvie and Ruby purchased the business from Lisa Arnbrister, and rebranded as Concepts Reno. Keeping the legacy going in the South Creek Shopping Center in Reno, Nevada.
