Share Article

Hollywood comes to Elizabethtown. The premise of the latest Cameron Crowe movie "Elizabethtown" mirrors the life of a local business owner and was filmed in front of her retail store, Meredith Avenue.

What are the odds that a movie would be made about Elizabethtown, Kentucky and that the premise of this movie would mirror the life of a local business owner, Kelly Meredith Elmore? Her dad, Federal Judge Ron Meredith died 10 years ago. Soon after his death, she returned to Elizabethtown to find herself and start her own business.

Ironically, the new Cameron Crowe Hollywood movie, "Elizabethtown," in which the main character returns to Elizabethtown after the death of his father, was filmed in front of her retail store. Kelly would love to share her story about how her father inspired her to believe that against all odds, she could come home to this small, wonderfully ordinary place and do extraordinary things with her life. Her dad would be overwhelmed with pride, as Kelly is, to have her business associated with this film. When others doubt that she can take a business that began at her dining room table and have national success, she perseveres with passion, believing in her dream. Kelly knows without a doubt that anything is possible, even in Elizabethtown.

Meredith Avenue is an online store that specializes in personalized and unique gifts which were an attraction to the film crew during the making of "Elizabethtown." Meredith Avenue began as Personally For You in 2001 as a retail store located at 220 West Dixie Avenue, Elizabethtown, KY. With a desire to reach a national market, Meredith Avenue launched its online store, in January 2005.
