Cross Ties Coffee Company to help promote local small businesses in Falkville

This event is the first in the E-Center's new Pop-up Shop Circuit, which helps promote small businesses in Morgan and Cullman counties.

FALKVILLE, Ala — Cross Ties Coffee Company in Downtown Falkville is hosting a Sip and Shop event on September 25 to help promote local small businesses.

The event is scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 46 Railroad Avenue.  

During the event, Cross Ties Coffee Company will host local small business owners and clients of the Decatur-Morgan County Entrepreneurial Center (E-Center) to sell products while promoting their businesses. The vendors scheduled to attend sell products ranging from leather works, wood signs, handmade soaps and custom tumblers — among many other items.  

"To us as a business, it's very important for us to be able to partner with other small businesses and support each other. I think any growth in your community is vital, for every business," said Cross Ties Coffee Shop Owner, Brianna Collett.
