Retail shop opening downtown
Downtown Tallassee is home to a new retail business, Sistrunk. Saturday, Sept. 1 the doors will officially open.
Joey and Kami Scarborough purchased a historic Tallassee building located at 4 Sistrunk Street in January of this year. Most of you are probably familiar with the building because it was the home to Ms. Vickie’s Dance Studio, the Heart of Dance.
The Scarboroughs began remodeling the building early this year. The top level is currently being utilized as a short term, furnished rental unit.
The ground level will be called Sistrunk, All Things Desired. “Sistrunk” has been renovated and will be home to Six, Two & Ten Collection and Handmade by Leigh Anne. Items available at the retail space will include women’s clothing (misses and plus), jewelry, accessories, homemade décor items, and faith based merchandise.
Six, Two & Ten Collection has been offering women of all ages and sizes reasonable, age-appropriate clothing and accessories through their online boutique and retail fashion truck for several years. The name honors the mill whistle schedule for Mount Vernon Mills which operated in Tallassee for many years. The whistle sounded to alert employees of work schedules. The whistle sounded every day at 6:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
Six, Two & Ten Collection is expanding their product line to include gift items such as candles, handmade pottery, and body and bath products.
Handmade by Leigh Anne will feature handmade home décor items including farmhouse wood signs, photo frames and trays. One section of items will include items that have a Tallassee connection.
“We are happy to offer something new in the downtown area. Our desire is to create an environment that is uplifting to all that visit us. We are very excited about this new venture,” Kami Scarborough stated.
