ABOUT CAMEY & THE RUFFLES AND RUST EXPO
The Ruffles and Rust Expo started because of a love she had for decorating. Camey started many years ago buying old chairs and repainting them and selling them on Craigslist. Eventually, she opened her own store on historic Rt. 66 in Texas. That’s when she had the idea for a traveling expo.
