The sun is out, the trees are in bloom, and we feel like shouting from the rooftops that spring is indeed here! We’re welcoming a new month in Nashville through our typical method of acknowledgment: It’s time for April FINDS. From your side tables to your taste buds to your beach-going accessories, there is so much to discover around Music City. Take a peek at some of our local favorites!
FOR SOMETHING COLORFUL
Beach and pool days are coming, so you better believe we’re keeping our eyes out for that essential tote to carry all of the necessary belongings. These large beach totes, $198 at Epergne, pack a gorgeous punch of color and also pack all the miscellaneous items you’ll need when headed to the water. Available in a variety of colors.
Mini floral prints

These mini copies of the artist’s collection are perfect for a side table pop of color or a desktop brightener. Perfect for teacher or hostess gifts, these colorful pieces from Maxi B. Home are $15 each.
We can’t think of any young girl who wouldn’t absolutely adore toting this pompom clutch. She can keep track of her things while feeling appropriately accessorized. It even comes with a wristlet!

Got succulents on your mind? You’re not alone.

The oversized succulents are packed into a high-gloss container and are topped with white pebbles and black or copper mirrored glass. Porcupine quills and pink agate top the display off with height and color. Available for $60 to $80, The Bishop might just become your new springtime BFF.
There’s no way to block those spring rays quite like an accessory that also celebrates Tennessee state pride. This hat from Fleet Feet Nashville sports the state flag’s Tristar logo while the iris flowers and raccoon on the back pay homage to the official state flower and state animal. No matter how you set out to enjoy the April sunshine in Nashville, grab one of these hats for $30 to bring your state pride to the next level.

Grab a dozen of these sugar cookies with icing for $40, and you will be the hero of Easter brunch! Fair warning, you probably shouldn’t bring them out until the very last minute.
When Southernaire Market shows us a sauce, you better believe we’re taking notes. When they marry a “Southern Duo” of their signature sauces, we say it’s a very worthy find. The Southern Belle and the Southern Gentleman sauces, available for $18 together, are set to take you through all of cookout season. These are most certainly the sauces you want to have in your collection.
We’re once again reminded that there’s so much to find in Nashville. Get out and support local this month — and every month. Happy April!
