Rusty Gypsy


First of all I love their name. Second the owners are so nice and knowledgeable. The store has recently moved from their teeny tiny storefront around the corner to this huge space. It’s at 229 S. Second Street, Upland, Ca. Their phone is 909-908-6236. To describe it I would say salvage rustic repurposed reused painted vintage home decor. It’s my kind of store. All my keywords for Instagram are there!

They carry CeCe Caldwell clay and chalk paint, the only store to do so in San Bernardino county. If you don’t know this brand you are in for a treat. It’s naturally green, non toxic. In fact they use it to redo cribs. The store carries a huge variety of colors-you can see some of the colors in my pictures of furniture there. And the paint is made in the good old USA . And they offer classes-next one is May 15th.

These are just a few of the pictures I took to give you an idea of the work being done here. We all need to support small businesses like this. I’m trying to do my part buying when I find a piece I need and spreading the word. I had such a good time just browsing in the store. I’m so happy because it is near me. I’m in Rancho Cucamonga, Amy is in Murrieta so you can see we drive far and wide to take in all these stores, flea markets, and faires. Seeing them is wonderful and telling you guys about them even better. Thus the blog was born. I hope you enjoy it and keep reading it because both Amy and I are having fun with this.

Thanks for reading…Bonnie
