John and Helen Cain are retired educators who found a way to enjoy Door County, as well as to meet wonderful tourists who visit the Door Peninsula each year. What a way to retire!
The Rusty Rabbit got their start in an old building in dire need of repair, in the center of Ephraim. Gifts, antiques, fine art, and their own hand-crafted copper sprinklers were the primary products available when the store opened. After two years, they outgrew the building in the center of town and moved to their present location in North Ephraim.
The Rusty Rabbit’s product line has changed through the years. Today, they sell mainly gifts, home decor items, clothing and accessories, garden items, and our own handmade sprinklers. Their beautiful building is full of merchandise to please a wide variety of shopping desires. Spacious grounds and perennial gardens are filled with garden items ranging from statuary to garden furniture as well as beautiful flowers to enjoy.
