The journey began on the dropped tailgate of a station wagon in Hawaii, strumming love songs to complement the swaying elegance of Mom’s Hula dance. With the six strings of a guitar too complex for youthful hands, the ukulele served as the medium. Sunset and sunrise, high and low tide, this humble song and dance spanned simplicity and sophistication, shaping youth, and igniting passions.
The years passed but the affinity towards stringed instruments never faded. By this time the scene of the story is back on the mainland, in the vibrant scene in Marin County, California. It was the 60’s. This was (and for many still is) the place to be. Free concerts from Janis, run-in’s with Jerry, grassroots jams with Boz Scaggs, colors, cartwheels, and occasional nudity… it was the 60’s. The warmth and vibes first experienced on that tailgate in Hawaii roared on, carried gently by the music.
When these effervescent days began to drift away, a leap into Corporate America was inevitable. While a far cry from Marin, the lessons learned in responsibility, efficiency, ethics, and structure formed the backbone for business standards which have been applied to Rusty’s. The Medical Supply boom brought the story to Charleston, South Carolina. Success in medical sales afforded the resources needed to complete the cyclical journey. The idea arrived: merge the two worlds; uniting business experience with the vibrancy of youth. Rusty’s guarantees unwavering service and customer support rooted firmly in the same passionate artistry and optimism that entranced us from Hawaii to California. We have come along way but we’ve only just begun!
