The company, based in Salt Lake City and owned by Tasha & Lance Anderson, had not exhibited at a CHA show since at least 2008.
The company’s announcement blamed the economy for their closure:
This past year has been incredibly tough on Rusty Pickle due to the economic situation. We feel that we can no longer survive as a company; consequently we have decided to close Rusty Pickle.
An inventory liquidation is in progress at the Rusty Pickle warehouse and on their website:
