At Rustique Relics, we are more than just a business; we are a tight-knit, family-owned, and operated venture with deep roots in our community. Our mission is simple: to add value to our neighborhood by providing a platform for our neighbors to sell their cherished antiques, collectibles, glassware, and handmade treasures. We take great pride in offering our customers a truly unique shopping experience, guiding them on a journey of discovery to find that perfect item they might not have known they were looking for.
Our story began in 2017 when Melissa's mother, Margaret, had a vision of creating a special space where people could share and celebrate their passions for all things vintage and handcrafted. With unwavering dedication and a strong sense of community spirit, Margaret brought Rustique Relics to life. The first step was a humble shop located just down the street from our present-day location. The response from our cherished customers and the overwhelming support from the community quickly showed us that we had tapped into something truly special.
As word spread and our inventory grew, we realized that our little shop could no longer contain the treasure trove of items that our neighbors wanted to share with the world. In just a year, we made the bold move to relocate to a more spacious and inviting location. This expansion allowed us to bring even more vendors into our family and present an even wider selection of unique finds to our ever-growing clientele.
Tragically, in late 2021, we said goodbye to our beloved Margaret, who left us to join the Lord. Her passion and dedication to Rustique Relics continue to inspire us every day. We are determined to honor her memory by nurturing the dream she shared with us, fostering an atmosphere of warmth and discovery for all who step foot in our store.
At Rustique Relics, we believe that the heart of a business lies in its community. We are committed to supporting our neighbors, vendors, and customers, fostering a network of connections that go far beyond mere transactions. Our goal is to be more than just a marketplace; we strive to be a gathering place where stories are shared, memories are made, and friendships are forged.
As we journey forward, we look forward to continuing our growth alongside our community. We invite you to join us in celebrating the beauty of the past, the artistry of handmade goods, and the joy of discovering hidden treasures. Whether you are a vendor looking to share your passions or a customer eager to explore, we extend our warmest welcome to Rustique Relics LLC.
Thank you for being part of our story.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Missy and Rodney
