It’s @trfarmersmarket season and that means you can get your @iviva fix on the regular.

You can find them there on June 1 and if you love turmeric oil, it’s buy one, get one free.

Here’s what that little oil is good for: anti microbial, calming minor rashes and wounds, digestive complaints and joint pain, to name a few benefits!

You’ll find iViva under the pavilion!
She speaks fluent GIF.

You’ve seen the work of the talented @izzyink all over Instagram - and maybe you didn’t even realize it.

Her GIFs have been viewed MILLIONS of times and she crafts them all right here in Travelers Rest!

She can take your big ideas (and your teeny ones too) and turn them into brand enhancing GIFs that help tell your story and help you engage with your audience. Also - they are just FUN.

(What to get the friend who already has everything? A custom GIF, y’all!)
