About The Rusty Zipper Family

With 29 years in business online, Rusty Zipper continues to be our passion. Launched in November 1995, Rusty Zipper 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 ( 34,059 to be exact ) of one-of-a-kind vintage clothing items from the 1940s through y2k, all available to view & order online.

Here are the people who make up our team:

Rob

Rob

Rob is the fearless ring leader of the Rusty Zipper crew. He loves sweatpants, AMC Pacers, programming, gabardine shirts, and sitting. If you really want to make his day, send him a video of you performing the song Muskrat Love. If you contact us with a question, it'll most likely be Rob getting back to you. Meet Rob on tiktok (warning: loud, annoying music)

 
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. Joyce joined our crazy crew 18 years ago.

 
Korina

Korina

Korina was part of the Rusty Zipper crew from birth 23 years ago. She's outgrown the play room and Rusty Zipper no longer has a jungle gym. Korina does all things digital when she's not doing all things denim.

 
Linda

Linda

Linda ...Hey, now, meet Linda. she's a radio pro, but heard the call of threads and decided to let go. Textile conservator, always hands-on, she restores each piece to perfection, never moves on. She's our go-to whether we have a track that needs mixin' or a sarong that needs fixin'.

 
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! Marilyn has been a part of our family for 23 years.

 
Don

Don

Don is a master at restoring vintage neckties to their original condition, has an impressive collection of vintage pop culture books, and on his days off is known to wear cufflinks without shirts. Don gave up a lucrative career as a Jack Nicholson impersonator to join the Rusty Zipper team back in 1995.

 
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 - 29 years! In addition to collecting vintage, Michele enjoys painting and photography. View her art at Fine Art America.

 
Hector

Hector

Hector ...without him there would be no Rusty Zipper. Hector is the reason everything comes to you clean and ready to wear. He has been with us since 2013 and is the only person around here who has their own office. Meet Hector on tiktok
