A group of young Arkansas and Tennessee entrepreneurs will be selling "upcycled" goods at a pop-up shop in downtown Little Rock on Wednesday. 

The one-day event is part of Elevate Entrepreneurship Systems' fifth annual Elevate Student Entrepreneurship Summer Camp. 

EES is a Little Rock nonprofit that works to provide entrepreneurship advice and resources to business-minded youth in Arkansas and Tennessee.   

Maria Hampton, EES vice president of communications, said Goodwill Industries of Arkansas donated a variety of items that were then redesigned and repurposed by the 15- to 25-year-old entrepreneurs, who will receive all proceeds from the event. 

The pop-up shop will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at StudioMain, 1423 S. Main St., Suite C.
