Allen Family Dentistry would like to spotlight our patient, Mr. Elijah Ford. Mr. Ford has been making sweetgrass baskets for over 65 years! His mother, Florence Ford, taught him how to make them when he was a child. Mr. Ford was born in Mt. Pleasant and has retired from working as a foreman for the LongShorman Association. He now makes his beautiful baskets full time. His Sweetgrass Basket stand is just across HWY 17 from our office. Stop by and see his work soon!
