Our Story

Rob Joyce Danielle Michele Marilyn Korina

We are in our 26th year in business online! 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 9,000 sq feet of warehouse space full of amazing stuff. We have thousands ( 31,366 to be exact ) of one-of-a-kind vintage clothing items from the 1940's through 1980's, all available to view & order online.

Our Product

At Rusty Zipper, we carry Hawaiian shirts, gabardine jackets, rayon neckties, bellbottoms, polyester disco shirts, leisure suits, you name it! We have enough vintage to fill over 9,000 square feet!

You'll find thousands of unique vintage clothing items from the 1940's through 1980's. Most items are close to flawless and very reasonably priced.

Our Commitment to Green

Each year, we process over 40,000 pounds of previously worn, vintage clothing - meaning the clothes you are buying are reducing the need for new manfacturing. All of the electricity we use is purchased through Portland General's Green Power Oregon clean energy program. We use ultra low wattage convection heaters augmented by cleaner burning propane heat, low power florescent lighting, high efficiency low water usage appliances in our laundering process, and even offset the energy used by computers visiting our site by purchasing renewable energy certificates from third-party wind and solar farms through co2stats.com. We ship carbon neutral through UPS, with carbon offsets purchased each time we ship a package (not available to all countries). Our 6 acre facility hosts a 4 acre untouched wilderness area with a spring-fed pond that supports local wildlife including deer, elk, bobcat, cougar, and even bear!
