Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Wishing you all a safe, happy, warm day with loved ones and good foods!

Shop News & Updates

Another wonderfully busy month for Arnold and I at One Rusty Nail! We’ve been pushing the new listings as consistently as possible, making sure we have a lot of variety and something for everyone, especially with the holidays creeping up so quickly now!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to take a moment to tell you how truly thankful we are for your continued support. If you’re reading this, then yes, that means YOU! Thank you! If it weren’t for our vintage-loving friends and awesome customers, we couldn’t do what we do. Having the opportunity for reason and purpose in hunting down vintage treasures and enjoying them with like-minded folks is such a pleasure. We are blessed. Thank you so much.

I had a shockingly fantastic surprise yesterday when I clicked to view the shop stats and noticed a spike in traffic… our milk glass pedestal planter had made it to Etsy’s Front Page! This is such an honor, one we’ve been hoping for and anxiously awaiting for such a long time! It’s our first time having an item in the coveted position, and the response in traffic (not only to the item, but to our entire shop as well) was terrific.


You may have noticed we’ve started a new Shop Section for vintage LP albums. A dear personal friend of mine is liquidating his collection of funky oldies, so we’ve begun listing them! There are 8 albums online so far, and we’ll add more to that collection a little at a time, depending on the interest generated. Many are still brand new, sealed in plastic!

The cold winter months means less opportunities for vintage hunting and picking, but we’re still hitting estate auctions and local sales to bring you unique vintage treasures. This month, we’ve been adding items with a holiday gifting focus – things that are in such good condition, they’re suitable for gift wrapping and giving! Lots of kitschy items, home decor trends, collectibles, and glassware coming your way!

Which leads me to tell you about the…

Vintage Michigan Team Holiday Sale

If you follow this blog or are a fan on Facebook, I’m sure you’ve heard all about this. But it’s definitely worth mentioning again! Hundreds (maybe thousands?) of items are on sale just in time for Christmas shopping.

I’m participating with other select shops from the Vintage Michigan Team in our collective 2012 Holiday Sale! Each shop is bringing their own great sales and promotions to the table, so I highly encourage you to check through this list of stores.

The One Rusty Nail holiday sale includes 15% off any purchase when you use coupon code VINTAGEMI at checkout.

We are also automatically including a FREE gift boxed upcycled pottery shard necklace with any $50+ order (before shipping costs).
