Russellville was known for decades as a place to come for a variety of downtown small businesses with great shops for browsing and buying. Much of that had disappeared until recently.

Now several entrepreneurs have put together boutiques, dining spots, flower shops, and a couple of larger shopping areas, all within easy walking distance of each other.

From the corner of South Main and East Ffith Street. The Flying Pig Coffee Shop, Fifth Street Finds, 219 Main Marketplace, The Robyn’s Nest, Livvy Mae Boutique and the Shoppe on the Square are just about in sight of each other.

Oak’n Ivy Florist is just a block away to the west, and Ruth Ellen’s Flowers is about three blocks to the east. Wok This Way will have its food truck open between The Flying Pig and and Fifth Street Finds.

All nine of these businesses are combining Friday and Saturday for Russellville Downtown Sip & Shop.

Friday, June 18, hours are from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. and Saturday hours str 9 a.m.=3 p.m.

There will be discounts, prizes, live music and a can food drive. Swag bags will be given to the first 100 shoppers each day.

Here’s what Jana Hardin of 219 Boutique has to say about the event:
