The Franklin Main Street Program welcomed The Rusty Rainbow to the district recently with a red carpet ceremony. The Rusty Rainbow is located next to Nantahala Baking & Coffee Co. at the corner of East Main Street and Rogers Street. Owners Hollie Watts and Audrey Lowry feature an eclectic mix of local art and secondhand items at affordable prices. The Rusty Rainbow is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Red Carpet Events are an initiative of the Franklin Main Street Program to assist new business owners in spreading the word about their endeavor. In addition to literally rolling out the red carpet, businesses are treated to special signage for a week as well as a marketing incentive from the Franklin Main Street Program and 96.7 WNCC Radio.
For more information on participating in a Red Carpet Event, call Linda Schlott, Executive Director of the Franklin Main Street Program at (828) 524-2516.
