The Rusted Rooster was born in December of 2012 after stumbling upon this charming little building and deciding it was the perfect place to open a little retail shop selling handmade goods and painted furniture.  Over the years we have hosted outdoor vintage markets, taught craft + paint classes, held seasonal open houses, and rented our space for small gatherings.  Fast forward to 2017 when the idea to add coffee + food to our shop became a serious reality thanks to a passionate gal, her awesome landlord and a serendiptious conversation.  Partners, Lissa Hackney and Mitch Lyon share the same "think outside the box" entreprenuerial spirit and adoration for the small town charm of Andover, Kansas.   Now if only they could agree on the same NFL team to root for! 
We hope you'll love the quaint and laid back atmosphere, unique food, and hometown feel that is The Rusted Rooster. Let this be your hangout...your happy place.  We encourage you to come laugh with family, connect with friends, discuss dreams, bring business ideas to life,  and to just slow down a bit in this crazy, fast paced world.  Put your cell phone down and grab a game, do a puzzle, play some cornhole out on our patio.  We have always been about giving talented, local artisans a place to showcase and sell their handmade goods. You can shop our retail room and feel good knowing that the treasures you purchase directly impact local makers right here in our town! 
 Save the World. Shop Local. Eat Local. Drink Local. Be Local.
