“What was supposed to be a few days a month to take a break from being a contractor became a career thanks largely to the amazing people at the Charleston City Market. On this 2nd anniversary of Reclaimed Rhythm, I’d like to thank the management of this wonderful establishment for giving me a venue to live out my dream of building guitars! And to all my fellow vendors who have such wonderful and diverse products and are so supportive, thank you as well. It’s a real privilege to work beside you great people! Here’s to many more years together!” — John Pavek, @reclaimedrhythm

Come see her selection — perfect for Valentine’s Day gifting!
