Mindy Straight

Graphic Designer and Engraver

Hey guys!! My name is Mindy or I also go by Shep! I was in the military for 10 years and then I was a correctional officer for 3 years. Before the military I went to Graphic Design school in Denver, Colorado and enjoyed every minute of it. Now I am here at The Rustic Patch bringing your vision/design to life. You might not see me very often but know I am always down at the wood shop cutting out your class door charm or creating a one of a kind item that you have been dreaming of.


Lyndsey Berry

Hello! My name is Lyndsey and I have been part of the Rustic Patch family for a few years now. I can help you find the perfect treat for your gathering or the finishing touches for your home, as well as helping you finish your door charm at a party. 


I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and doing some crafting for myself. You might even catch me at the racetrack cheering on my favorite stock car driver. 


Isabel Camacho

Hi all I am Isabel or as Sonya likes to call me Izzy. I really enjoy coffee, working out and spending time with my family. I recently moved back to Kearney and am excited to be part of the Rustic Patch family once again.

Samantha Smith

Samantha Smith

Hey there, I'm Sam Smith! This is my little family - my husband, Connor, and our daughter, Lexi Lynn! I love being a mom!

At the Rustic Patch, I work behind the scenes, creating the social media posts! I enjoy promoting this beautiful, unique store. 🤍

In our free time you can find Lexi and I walking around Yanney Park. I also enjoy golfing with my husband and spend time with the whole fam!


Sarah Benes

Hey all! I'm Sarah! When I'm not working at The Rustic Patch you can find me hanging out with family, friends and my fur baby Dora. I also gained the new title as "Auntie" in July, so I spend a lot of time spoiling my niece. I look forward to helping you find the perfect piece for your home, a gift or helping you in a painting Class!


Kristy Buchmeier

Hi! My name is Kristy and I've been around for a few years at The Rustic Patch. I'm super excited to be back in the store helping you with decorating ideas and helping with the paint classes too from time to time! 

I like to spend time with my friends playing golf or darts in my spare time. I look forward to seeing new and familiar faces here at the Patch!


Samantha Hammond

Hello! I'm Samantha Hammond and I am married to Sonya's brother, Jeff. Come in and let me help you explore all the amazing options for your decorating needs The Rustic Patch has to offer.

If I am not at the Patch I am probably coaching volleyball or walking our black lab, Duke.
