About The Rusty Zipper Crew

With 22 years in business online, Rusty Zipper continues to be our passion. Launched in November 1995, RustyZipper.Com was the web's first vintage clothing store. Over the years, we've outgrown the spare closet & now have over 7,000 sq feet of warehouse space full of amazing stuff. We have thousands (over 29,000 at last count) of one-of-a-kind vintage clothing items from the 1940's through 1980's, all available to view & order online.

Here are the people who make up our team:

Jennifer

Jennifer

Jennifer is the fearless ring leader of this fierce largely lady crew. She loves toe socks, mittens with fingerless gloves under the flap, side pony tails, eating sandwiches and making jewelery out of loose buttons. She collects vintage garbage pail kids trading cards and has a large scrap book collection of stickers from the 80s that she likes to scratch and sniff at from time to time. Jen is a champion at processing orders, looking at people like they are crazy and shaking her fingers at fashion faux pas.

 
Nicole

Nicole

Nicole is a girl who works here - when you call, she picks up the phone with her hands and puts it to her face to speak with you. She also describes things. Her favorite items are baja jackets, flannel shirts, boots and rumba shorts. When she is in a mood, she sings - lynard skynard. She enjoys spending her off time at bingo halls and at anything cosplay related - her favorite is sailor moon. Often reeks of icy hot and hasnt turned away from an opportunity to poop in her neighbors lawn.

 
Joyce

Joyce

Joyce is the sweetest woman you will ever meet, with a love for summer sausage that cannot be challenged. She uses her eyes to look at things, then describe them - the polite way. She knows her stuff and has a cheery smile that cant be shaken. Likely the sanest of the crew. She enjoys bowling, cooking things with rice, elvis, disco shirts and hippie clothing.

 
Michele

Michele

Michele scouts the western United States with her husband, Don, looking for unique vintage finds to keep our warehouse filled. Don and Michele have been part of the Rusty Zipper crew since day one - 22 years! In addition to collecting vintage, Michele enjoys painting and photography. View her art at Fine Art America.

 
Marilyn

Marilyn

Marilyn is a walking encyclopedia of fashion knowledge, has a keen eye for vintage and loves the hunt! She provides such amazing detail in her item descriptions that we had to make our description field longer just for her!

 
Derek

Derek

Derek spends his days buried in a giant pit of christmas sweaters, he touches each one of them, washes them, looks at them - then types them up. Derek has ornaments for eyes and stockings for shoes. His favorite band is Europe, he collects ornamental soap shaped like sea shells in an assortment of pastel colors.

 
Tim

Tim

Tim wears glasses to see thing better. He packages the orders, keeps the warehouse organized and brings us donuts every monday! He speaks to himself and will be heard saying -Oh Brother - daily. He has a love for puppies, wearing shorts when its way too cold and college football. Tim is very polite.

 
You

You

You could have your photo right here! Do you know just about everything there is to know about Mens and Womens fashion from the 40s through 80s? Can you type crazy-fast? Lift 50lbs?
