About Us

The Rusty Rabbit opened its doors in 2002 and is an independent, locally-owned SW Michigan specialty retail store that celebrates unique gifts, local artists, pretty papers, garden whimsies, seasonal items and rescued cocktail relics.

We are located in the quaint antique village of Mattawan, Michigan, situated 10 miles west of Kalamazoo off I-94, in SW Michigan's wine country.  You can find us next door to Cavanaugh Antiques and Interiors and William Lesterhouse Antiques.

Our store is housed in two turn-of-the century historic storefronts that were formerly the Village of Mattawan's bank and police station.  


All fixtures and display pieces showcasing our products are salvaged and presented in our own shabby chic style.

We celebrate the art of great gift giving through local and regional artists, pretty papers, garden whimsies, seasonal giftware and rescued cocktail relics.  

Our store decor captures the essence of SW Michigan's Seasons.  Be sure to stop in and see ever changing seasonal displays.

Our monthly newsletter, MacGregor's Garden, is filled with seasonal recipes, gardening and entertaining tips, store photos and upcoming events.

When visiting in what is being called "The Napa Valley of the Midwest", please stop by for an unforgettable and unique shopping experience.
