Local Inspiration from Basic Kitchen Owner, Kate Towill
L O C A L I N F L U E N C E R : K A T E T O W I L L
Celadon’s Flea & Farmers Market is filled with artisans and makers from all over the Charleston area looking to make a start, or continuing to chase their dreams. We take pride in helping to advocate for our local small businesses, as we too, are a small, local business. This blog series is spotlighting artists and makers who have made a name for themselves among The Holy City and who help to influence and encourage our vendors and customers alike. We are excited to continue with Kate Towill, who, along with her husband, Ben Towill, is the vision and owner behind local restaurant, Basic Kitchen, as well as the designer for Basic Projects.
