Good evening, friends! I hope everyone is enjoying these Fall colors and staying warm out there!

Shop News & Updates

It’s been a busy month for Arnold and I in terms of One Rusty Nail! We’ve been hitting lots of auctions and estate sales to keep the fresh new listings coming. We’re finding it equally important to work on stockpiling our collections for Winter, because as the cold weather comes in, the opportunities for vintage treasure hunting slow down rapidly.

As you know, we strive to list at least a few new items every day of the week. That means we’re vigilantly hunting for new shop-worthy finds, and constantly cleaning, photographing, and getting those listings made! You can expect to find great new items in store almost on a daily basis. Keeping it fresh and funky is actually one of my favorite parts about the shop – there’s always something new to see!

Arnold and I set a goal last month of reaching 200 items listed in the shop, and we’re heading quickly for that target.

With the holidays around the corner, we’ll be adding lots of gift-worthy items over the next couple months. Keep an eye out for our upcoming holiday specials and promotions as well!

Upcycled Collection Launch

Last week, we introduced a new shop feature: the Upcycled Collection. Our first round of new listings in this category included pretty reclaimed pottery shard necklaces, which is something I’ve experimented with in the past and I personally find to be very unique and fun. If you haven’t checked out these cool creations, have a peek here.

We’re planning to dive deeper into the world of upcycling this winter. Arnold and I have enjoyed rescuing  and repurposing our own vintage treasures for quite some time now, and we’ll be adding more new creations in the coming months.

Etsy’s Vintage Michigan Team

I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with and getting to know some of our fellow Etsy sellers recently via a very special group on Etsy called the Vintage Michigan Team.

This is a group of great folks who live in Michigan and have come together through a mutual passion for all things vintage. These people are knowledgeable, friendly, and outstanding sellers – I’m proud to be a member of this cooperative. And you won’t believe some of the amazing finds this group has to offer!

As the holidays grow closer, Vintage Michigan Team members will be running some great specials and promotions. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure to share about them when the time comes!

One of the first things we’re doing is creating Team Treasuries to showcase beautiful merchandise pulled together from all different Team shops. I created my first Team Treasury today – take a look at these beauties!

















If you live in Michigan, are a vintage enthusiast, and use Etsy for buying OR selling, make sure to drop by and join in!

Gearing Up for the Holidays

Fall is definitely here, and it’s time to start looking forward to Halloween, Thanksgiving, and yes, even Christmas! It’s never too early to start stocking up, and we’ve got some fantastic items in store for this time of year. Whether you’re hunting for home decor, collectibles, or a one-of-a-kind gift, drop by the shop and get inspired!

Here’s a quick peek at a few of my favorite Thanksgiving serving and home decor accents for sale right now:
