The CreW

The Franklin Market has undergone some serious changes in the two years. In April of 2020, while we were closed for Covid, we moved the retail location to The Franklin Market, making our original location at 302 W 2nd St, home to our online auctions.

Elixir began construction of their space in March of 2021, and opened in June. Stacey and her crew serves a full drink menu, as well as breakfast and lunch options. Be sure to follow her Facebook page to stay informed of her weekly specials.

Linda Kimball, owner of The Old School Clipper, currently remains closed while she battles pancreatic cancer. If you would like to donate to her fund to help her pay bills while she is unable to work, please call or stop in.

THE STORY BEHIND THE FRANKLIN MARKET

The building that houses The Franklin Market was purchased by Amanda Graham in June of 2018. It was originally purchased to serve as a location for her new venture into online auctions, as well as periodic consignment sales. The site quickly evolved into a second location, with regular weekly hours, and other businesses joining in the venture. The name "Franklin" was chosen to pay homage to the building's past retail resident: Ben Franklin.
