Our Story

Rob Joyce Jillian Melania Michele Don Marilyn Korina Hector

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 ( 31,174 to be exact ) of one-of-a-kind vintage clothing items from the 1940s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond -- all available to view & order online.

Our stuff

At Rusty Zipper, we carry mod knit dresses, Hawaiian shirts, bellbottom jeans, leisure suits, ski jackets, shorts, western shirts, prairie blouses, neckties, sewing patterns, purses, hats, shoes, you name it! We have enough vintage to fill over 9,000 square feet!

Our items are sized accurately, reasonably priced, and clean and ready to wear. Most are close to flawless (any flaws or stains are noted in the item description).




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 low power lighting, high efficiency low water use appliances, hypoallergenic and earth friendly Ecos brand laundry detergent. We ship carbon neutral through UPS, with carbon offsets purchased each time we ship a package. Our 6 acre facility hosts a 4 acre untouched wilderness area with a spring-fed pond that supports local wildlife including deer, elk, heron, bobcat, cougar, and even bear!
