Rusty & Sandy
Rusty and Sandy became the representatives for Home Timber & Hardware when the group was formed from the amalgamation of Homestead and Homesaver Hardware groups in March 1993. Home Timber & Hardware immediately saw their undeniable potential as the loveable rogues that they are and they were recruited on the spot to become the face of the brand.
Over the years, Rusty and Sandy have had an array of merchandise produced in their honor including singing / flipping & giant plush toys, clothes, stationary, bobble heads and even bumper car stickers. Home Timber & Hardware stores across the country have sold and given away many hundreds of thousands of these over the years and they have even bobbed up on popular T.V. programs, magazines and in other media. They are without doubt universally loved by adults and kids alike and will continue to be so into the future.
The ´Tradie´ Dog
He´s a trade dog who grew up in the country. He’s the consummate professional in all things D.I.Y. There´s not a tool or technique with which he is not familiar. If it´s changing a tap washer or knocking up a new pergola he´s got it covered. From a hinge for a door to a compound mitre saw, Rusty knows the proper way to use it, maintain it and all the safety tips.
He´s in his element shooting the breeze with the staff at his local Home Timber and Hardware store who, like Rusty, loves to swap the Proper D.I.Y. story. Like a good friend, there´s nothing Rusty likes more than passing on that info to anyone who needs a hand, including his best mate Sandy.
The ´Do It Yourself´ Dog
He´s your suburban dog, who is a self confessed D.I.Y. tragic. Once as handy as an ashtray on a motorbike, thanks to years of giving it a go and the endless Proper advice from Rusty and the team at his local Home Timber and Hardware store, he can now hold his own and make any project a success.
While Sandy would sometimes much prefer to get Rusty to do all his DIY projects and handyman jobs, when he’s not always that flush with funds or there are that little job that the missus wants done that just can´t wait, he’ll gladly get on his workpants, visit his local Home for some Proper advice and give it a go.
