Great gifts and home furnishings too. Have always liked Rusty Bucket.
They now make personalized plaques and dining tables. New shipments all the time.

We walked in and this is a really cute furniture/sign store. They had some nice custom made tables, chairs, hutches, etc that were made out of wood that was finished to look distressed. BUT, it is not old or antiques. Everything is newt made and “weathered” to look old. There are even signs on most pieces that say”can be ordered in different finishes”.

Prices are decent and it is a cute small store, I just do not like this new thing of manufacture stuff to look old, call it an antique store, and trick people into thinking they are buying old things. :(

Fun store to explore with many items to consider.

Furnishings and accessories for the cozy country home.

The entire store smells like apple cobbler, so it was hard to concentrate.

Candles, knickknacks, cottage style furniture and accessories, as near as I could tell, everything was new but made to look worn or old and weathered.

Country store / rustic themed artwork, Americana at its best.

Rusty Bucket won the Country Business Magazine Retailer of the Year,

It's as soothing as a trip to Grandma's house and rummaging through everything.

Definitely worth a trip tp Apex.

The Rusty Bucket is a very cute store. When you enter, you will realize how friendly the staff is and how they will help you find the treasures you are looking for. I really liked how they made the checkout area like an old house with a roof and all. The back of the store had a full kitchen too which I learned they sell new appliances that look like antiques.

When I was in the store, the theme was Christmas and there was so much to choose from with the unique high quality products. I left with some ornaments that are beautiful.

I love perusing the shop! They have an excellent collection of art, furniture, candles and local treats. They specialize in local, southern and primitive items. Over the last few years, I have found for myself or have been given a gift by my family things including an armoire for my quilts, a front door wreath, beautiful candles, an inspirational sign and a beautiful painting of a barn! The only issue I have is that they have so many wonderful things you can't spot them all, but I guess that is a pretty great problem to have!

Lots of local crafts make the Rusty Bucket a must visit for out-of-towners. The store is small but they manage to pack a lot into it.

This store is amazing and a very interesting place to stop and window shop or browse within the store. They always have interesting things to look at and buy. Most of what they sell in this store is seasonal or Americana type home décor. I highly recommend a stop at the Rusty Bucket if you are anywhere around Apex, N C - Very friendly and helpful staff and you always can find either a gift for someone or a treat for yourself.

The Rusty Bucket, downtown Apex NC, is a very unique store. They carry artwork and crafts of many local artists. If you are looking for home decoration or a special gift,visit The Rusty Bucket.
