Update June 26th 2020
While it's still just me in the warehouse shipping your orders, the rest of the crew is back to work part-time from home or on staggered schedules. I will still be a little slow responding to your emails, but I'm still getting all orders shipped right away!
We will be continuing to add new items to our site, just not quite as many as we normally would. We expect to be adding 100 to 200 new items to the site every couple of weeks.

We're open, but it's just me here
No words that I can write are able to express how grateful I am to my incredible team and truly amazing customers.
I am fortunate during these trying times to be able to continue to work and do what I love. Rusty Zipper's warehouse is located on the same rural country property as my home. While my business has been affected by a substantial drop in sales, I am thankful I can continue to operate during these extraordinary times.
I deeply regret that I am unable to continue to employ half of our staff. I will be bringing them back as soon as it is safe to do so and our business allows. Don, Michele and Marilyn are continuing to work from home (as each has for the past 20+ years) to continue to process new inventory. My son Kyle and daughter Korina will be helping to photograph new items.
I am currently the only person working in the warehouse. While I anticipate getting all orders out on time, I may be a bit slow in responding to your emails.
Stay safe and be kind to one another!
