What’s been going on down at the Ole’ Bottorff’s Ruffles & Rust?

Well it was a busy summer! Thank you everyone from near and far who stopped in to see us!  We appreciate your business and continued support.  fall-2016-5Brenda, Debbie, Laura, Jay and I completely rearranged the store. The windows have had a make over and we started getting the store ready.

Ready for what you ask?  I can’t say it yet.  Not out loud, it’s too soon.

You know, the C word, it happens in December.

I haven’t even put my dang sandals away yet. I can’t talk about it yetfall-2016-2So many great new things have arrived.


I’m so excited!

Right now for the first time in my Shopkeeper life I can honestly say Myself , Jay, Debbie, and John and Brenda use everything that is in the store. We’ve used it, cooked it, ate it, drank it, read it, worn it, and went back for more!  fall-2016-4 fall-2016-3 I took some time this summer and got out of the store to search for some great handmade items. If it was local……… EVEN BETTER!



I’ve expanded our men’s area! Don’t fret, I didn’t forget the ladies. I’ve been  adding some great handmade items as I find them.fall-2016I know, I wasn’t going to talk about it, but I have to give you a little heads up on what’s coming up in November so you can put it on your calendar.
