The opening of our store came about out of necessity. My mother had a stroke 7 years ago. Because of the special relationship me and my mother have, I became her primary care giver. Being cooped up in the house with little to do started to take it's toll on my mothers memory. And not being able to work full time took it's toll on my ability to pay my bills. We knew we needed to do something to help both my mom & me. So we did something crazy. We took the advice of all those people who said, " The things you guy's make for your selves and friends are amazing and you should be selling them". We opened The Rusty Bucket (our brick & mortar store) on Oct. 10th 2013 in Lyndonville, VT. From their we continued to listen to the people and when they said you should get on Etsy, we did.
Today, my mothers memory has shown improvement and I get to go to work everyday at a place that I love with my best friend (my mom). How cool is that.
An unexpected benefit is that I am also able to work my hours around my kids (or should I say fur babies). I have a 7 year old Corgi mix rescue and a 2-1/2 year old Beagle Dane mix rescue. Like any 7 and 2 year old, they don't do well being left for long periods of time. So this allows me to work around their needs as well. Win, Win for all.
One of the best parts about owning a store in Vermont is that the pieces we love to repurpose are easily found here and at a cost that allows us to keep our prices affordable for everyone.
3 years later....It's now been 10 yrs. since mom's first stroke. I am happy to report she is doing well. Still creating and fisty as ever.  
We have relocated our brick and mortar store to Bethlehem, NH. Our new location is a barn that was built in the 1800's. It has been updated to a Rusty Bucket store front. Located right off the highway. So we are much easier to find and we have tons of parking available, so bring your truck. 
We still sale online here and on Etsy. And shipping is still free. 
It sadens us to report, we lost our furbabie Domino in May to illness and now our furbabie Lacey has also passed. Our hearts continue to ache, but the recent move has been a great distractor. The would have loved romping through the 8 acres we are now located on. Thank you to all of you lovely people for the wonderful thoughts and wishes. It means so much to me and my family. 
But enough of the sad on to the happy. We are now Re-Opened at our new location off exit 40 in Bethlehem, NH.  
See you soon.
