“There’s going to be a lot of crafts, crafters and vendors that they wouldn’t see in your everyday walks of shopping. This is going to be more specialized, and more one on one, supporting your local small business and it’s going to be lots of fun,” Anderson said.

Ribbon cuttings will be held at 4 p.m. Friday on Cleveland Street for two new businesses in the Elloree community: “Knee High Nook” and “Galloree.”

Small businesses “are super important to the life of a town,” Anderson said.
