A Shop of Things
Neighborhood: East Nashville
More info: ashopofthings.com
After sporadic pop-ups and an online presence since 2015, owner Mia Calotta finally opened a brick-and-mortar shop in East Nashville — an idea she’s been toying with for over five years. “I felt the push as the pandemic was waning,” she says, “because, like everyone else, I wanted to be back in the world again.” She looked all over town for a storefront and found the perfect spot in the former Nelson’s Drum Shop location. The store boasts a vast selection of fun items, from greeting cards and candles to press-on nails and gifts galore.
“If you have some time and just want to spend an afternoon looking at fun stuff, come by and ask anyone on our team what has been popular or what their favorite products are,” says Mia. “The team has amazing taste!”
In addition to a plethora of vibrant and creative gift items, the store focuses on community involvement. “Almost all of the events we do are fundraisers,” Mia tells us. Last year, she raised over $20,000 for various nonprofits!
Consider the Wldflwrs
Neighborhood: Edgehill Village
More info: considerthewldflwrs.com
Consider the Wldflwrs has long been a local favorite — an upscale, family-owned jewelry shop with everything from custom and everyday options to heirloom and bridal pieces. (Some of our SB team members even got their engagement rings there!). Though the original store location in East Nashville closed, it was all in the name of better things to come.
After years of searching for the perfect new site for the flagship store, they’ve found it in Edgehill Village. “We knew that our team needed a bigger space, and we wanted to be in a central location so that we could be a one-stop shop for all fine jewelry creation, restoration, and repair,” says founder and CEO Emily Eggebrecht.
As if the opening of the new store isn’t exciting enough, the Consider the Wldflwrs team recently launched a brand new line that includes 15 nature-inspired, 14-karat gold fine jewelry pieces for both men and women.
“These pieces are being added to our signature collection of fine jewelry, which is meant to be worn daily,” Emily tells us. “It’s jewelry you can truly live in. We also have our bridal signature collections, which include engagement rings and wedding bands that are exclusive to our storefront and online store.”
Garage Sale Vintage
Neighborhood: East Nashville
More info: garagesalevintage.com
Part retail spot and part cocktail bar, Garage Sale Vintage is East Nashville’s newest way to sip and shop. As the website motto so perfectly states, “Come for the vintage (stay for the margaritas).” Grab a shot, hard lemonade, or any other libation from the menu, and browse vintage treasures to your heart’s delight. You can find a solid selection of nostalgic T-shirts, vintage handbags and sunglasses, retro games, vinyl records, and more. Additionally, if you have a closet full of clothes you’re ready to upsell, Garage Sale Vintage also offers cash or store credit for your old threads.

Created in 2015 by a local husband-and-wife duo, Ranger Station has become a beloved Nashville fragrance studio. Now, we can shop our favorite hand-poured candles, unisex perfumes, and body products at their first brick-and-mortar location in 12South! Taking over the former Consider the Wldflwrs space (adjacent to Burger Up), the shop even boasts a lab for creating custom scents. “The fact that it is in 12South is a dream come true,” says co-founder Steve Soderholm of the new location. “Not only because it’s the most coveted retail shopping destination in Nashville, but because it’s where my wife Jordan and I first met as students at Belmont University. It feels like home to us here, and we are so excited to have a presence in the neighborhood so dear to our hearts.”
Stop in to shop their nature-inspired fragrances and soy-based wax candles. Set in cocktail glasses, they come with a cocktail pairing recipe and a box of matches — the perfect gift for you or someone else. You can also look forward to special events, cocktail hours, and live music as the year continues.

Neighborhood: Belle Meade • More Info: debbiemathews.com
One-of-a-kind antiques and unique home furnishings abound at Debbie Mathews Antiques and Designs, Belle Meade’s newest go-to for home accessories and vintage pieces. An antique vendor in the Belle Meade Shoppes for over 30 years, Debbie has a built-in clientele and extensive interior design knowledge. “Because my husband and I have lived in and around Belle Meade for many years, I wanted to create a one-stop shop for friends, family, and neighbors to drop by, say ‘hello,’ and find the perfect gift or home accessory to solve their immediate needs,” she tells us.
The shop offers everything from 18th- and 19th-century European pieces that have been sourced abroad to vintage mirrors and lighting. You can also pick up gift items from one-of-a-kind art and signature candles to linens and coffee table books. “With our recent move to a much larger retail showroom, we wanted to introduce more personal and giftable items,” says Debbie. “I am attracted to lines that employ age-old manufacturing techniques, tell a unique story, and exhibit the highest quality craftsmanship. One of the lines we are most excited about is a luxury Italian handbag line called the FRP Collection.”
Neighborhood: Wedgewood-Houston • More Info: Instagram
After two successful January pop-ups, owner and entrepreneur Stephanie Styll has officially opened Killjoy, “Nashville’s first booze-free beverage shop.” Looking for quality alcohol alternatives and frequently coming up empty-handed, Stephanie decided Music City needed a one-stop shop for all things alcohol-free. Aside from over 30 types of alcohol-free wines, including sparkling, rosé, and red, you can find a selection of non-alcoholic spirits, products with CBD, and more. “We have curated our collection to ensure that everything is high-quality,” Stephanie tells us, adding, “These are mostly alcohol-removed wines created by master wine-makers from all over the world — no juice here!”
Stephanie also hosts pop-ups and events, including a trivia night, book club gathering, and sound bath experience. “Our mission is to create community and to provide sophisticated drink options to those choosing not to drink, and a huge part of that will be hosting events that bring people together.
Made in TN | 12South
Neighborhood: 12South • More Info: madeintn.com
Made in TN has opened its third brick-and-mortar location, this time in the 12South neighborhood! Thanks to founders Sarah and Ilex Pounders, we have yet another opportunity to snag locally made goods from Tennessee makers such as Goo Goo Clusters, Loveless Cafe, Ranger Station, and Music City Suds.
Located between Fryce Cream and Burger Up, it’s a one-stop shop for Southern staples, gifts, and souvenirs. “As longtime residents of Nashville ourselves, we have always loved shopping and eating in the 12South neighborhood,” says Sarah. “We were excited to find a space where we could open a Made in TN store so that residents and visitors alike can frequent a fun local gift shop and help us further support the incredible creatives behind the products made here in Tennessee.”
The 700-square-foot space may have a smaller footprint than its counterparts in Franklin or L&L Market, but don’t take that to mean it’s less well-stocked. “This location has slightly smaller square footage than our other stores, so each item is specifically curated to be our top sellers and best of the best,” Sarah tells us. “We really try to offer a fun selection here that appeals to both locals and visitors, [and] showcases our favorite items made in Tennessee.” Indeed, they do. Head in for candy, candles, jewelry, apparel, and everything in between!
Neighborhood: Franklin • More Info: societyfranklin.com
An elevated boutique filled with stylish, comfortable clothing and accessories, SOCIETY is Franklin’s newest Berry Farms boutique. Owned and operated by former personal stylist Andrea Hanna, the shop is located next to Biscuit Love and offers a range of items — from classic staples to of-the-moment pieces perfect for a night on the town. “You will always find stylish tops, quality basics, casual dresses, and plenty of color,” explains Andrea. “But I think what sets us apart are the pieces that are more unique and at the forefront of everyday fashion — statement pieces that take you out of your comfort zone and into your confident zone.”
“I was inspired to open SOCIETY to help women in the community look and feel their best and to offer high-quality fashion for a variety of budgets,” says Andrea of her location choice, which is in close proximity to the walkable Berry Farms residential neighborhood. “As a personal stylist, I was finding it increasingly difficult to find a variety of shopping options in Williamson County. I saw a real void for boutiques in South Franklin. I chose Berry Farms because it offers great foot traffic, a diverse clientele, and fantastic exposure.”
The Village Forager
Neighborhood: Mount Juliet • More Info: thevillageforager.com
The Village Forager is Mount Juliet’s newest spot for home goods and gifts. Erin McMillan, who owns the shop with her mother, Angie Emerick, says it’s an extension of a shop her mom originally opened in their hometown of Centerville, IN. “After six years of that shop being open,” says Erin, ” [my mom] decided she’d like to open a second location close to me here in Nashville. I jumped on the idea, excited to work with my mother and run the Mount Juliet location! We really liked the idea of having the shop in an old house with some character.”
The shop is a go-to for gifts, with a little bit of everything, including bath and body products, aromatherapy and candles, books, jewelry, cards, home goods, and more. Additionally, you can refuel while you shop. “We have a coffee shop and greenhouse,” Erin tells us, “and we have a lot of pieces and products from local artists and makers … We are fun, quirky, and inclusive, and we are excited to be a part of the small business community in Mount Juliet!”
Vinnie Louise at L&L Market
Neighborhood: Sylvan Heights • More Info: vinnielouise.com
With stores in East Nashville, 12South, and Franklin, Vinnie Louise has expanded to include a fourth Nashville location — in L& L Market! Operations Manager Lauren Hays says, “We have always loved L&L and the atmosphere that it brings. When an opportunity arose, we felt like it was the right move for us at the right time, and so we went for it! We are loving it so far and love that we get to bring Vinnie to West Nashville.” Opening on April 1 (the company’s ninth birthday), the boutique offers all the wardrobe staples you need as we make our way into the summer. From jeans and the perfect t-shirt to jewelry and shoes, you can snag an entire ensemble and the accessories to go with it.
“This space is indoors at L&L Market, which we have never had before,” says Lauren of the new digs, “so it’s a perfect spot to come inside to grab coffee, lunch, and do a little shopping all in one spot — which we love! It’s great for locals as well as those visiting Nashville! But when you walk into Vinnie Louise L&L, you will feel the same cozy and welcoming vibes that all Vinnie locations strive to bring.”

UPDATES FROM MARCH 2023
From a beautiful home decor boutique from a renowned interior designer to a marketplace for tasty artisan goods, there are some exciting shopping experiences on the horizon here in Nashville! Whether you’re searching for a gift, tasty goods for your next dinner party, or accessories to spruce up your living space for spring, here are four new shops to check out.
*Listed in alphabetical order
5133 Harding Pike A10, Nashville, TN 37205 • (615) 953-2908
Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; closed Sunday and Monday
When inspiration strikes, it pays to see where it takes you. Just ask Stephanie Sabbe, who has owned her interior design studio in Belle Meade for two years but recently added a retail shop, Heirloom Artifacts, to the front of the space. “I am notorious for feeling super stretched and then throwing something else on my plate just to spice it up/see if I’ll live — another kid, another animal, and this year a shop!” the esteemed designer tells us. “I honestly just wanted to walk into something pretty every day.”
Pretty is an understatement. The storefront is a curated collection of the sort of elements that make Stephanie so popular — charming, eclectic vintage pieces and bold, rich prints that offer nostalgia with a contemporary perspective. “We love warm, cozy, collected, unique interiors,” she says. “My hope is that people can use our shop to implement those sentiments into their own homes.”
The shop is a treasure trove of wonderful things, from artisan textiles and accent pillows to artwork and restored antique chairs. “The candle chasers have been the hit of the shop, for sure,” Stephanie shares. “We also have a French linen line that has done well, particularly the aprons. We carry a line of wool tartan plaid throws that are the perfect way to bring what we consider our ‘default style’ into any interior space.”
Besides the beautiful home goods, Stephanie offers monthly workshops on creative disciplines ranging from still-life painting to chain stitching. “I’ve always wanted to live in a town where you pop by small shops on the way home from lunch, know the shopkeeper, and laugh about something that happened that week,” she says. “Maybe you buy something, maybe you don’t. But you leave feeling like you are part of a community.”
1204 4th Ave. N., Nashville, TN 37208 • (615) 970-1244
Hours: Daily, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (beginning Thursday, March 16)
If you’re a longtime fan of Mayker, you’re in for a treat! The new flagship store in Germantown is an opportunity for your interior design dreams to come to life. “We wanted to create a new physical space to guide people on their home design journey,” explains founder Megan Proby. “While so many transactions can take place virtually, designing your home is a very personal, sensory experience. You want to feel a connection with what you’re filling your home with — seeing and touching products, materials, and colors. Our new flagship store provides a tangible experience for the broader Nashville community. Seven days a week, individuals can discover products and receive expert guidance in a setting that’s approachable and inspiring.”
Nestled between other Germantown favorites such as Henrietta Red and City House, Mayker continues to help uplevel the neighborhood and invest in the community. “The neighborhood is this lovely mixture of historic roots and new vision, which feels like such a natural home for our brand,” Megan offers.
Stepping into the Mayker shop means soaking in the inviting space filled with statement pieces, performance upholstery and furnishings, decor items, and beyond. “We want people to be able to come in and feel confident in designing a full home project or simply finding that one special object that rounds out their space,” Megan says. She also tells us that the products you’ll find on the floor are merely the tip of the iceberg. “Our library of design resources is deep, and our team can discover and deliver nearly anything you need to make your home feel authentic and complete.”
The showroom’s opening weekend begins on Saturday, March 11, so put it on your calendar now, and be sure to stop in for French jazz, celebratory cocktails, and even sweet treats from Dozen Bakery. Plus, rumor has it that the first 150 shoppers receive a gift bag, including a founding Mayker Membership that’s good for 20% off their products for the remainder of the calendar year!
1815 21st Ave. S., Nashville, TN 37212 • (629) 888-4711
Hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The NASH Collection has made its way to Hillsboro Village. Officially opening on Monday, February 13, it’s the second storefront for the Music City-centric lifestyle brand (the flagship store is downtown at Fifth + Broadway), and it features a selection of “Nash” clothing and accessories for those who want to flaunt some love for our fair city.
Located next to The Impeccable Pig, the boutique is now open in the space that used to house women’s boutique Revv — and it happens to be owned by the same company. “As many know, The Nash Collection was born from Revv,” says owner Laci Bonner. “After a few years with Revv in Hillsboro, we saw an ever-growing demand for more Nashville souvenirs and apparel. After much consideration and the saturation of women’s shopping in Hillsboro, we thought The Nash Collection’s unisex offerings could bring a breath of fresh air!”
There are oodles of Nashville-centric accessories and clothing items at Nash Collection, offering gift options galore as well as cute and comfy selections perfect for showing off your hometown pride. “Our favorites are our blackout ball caps and truckers,” Laci tells us, “but you can’t go wrong with anything if you’re seeking a gift for anyone who loves Nashville.”
3 City Ave. Suite #800, Nashville, TN 37209 • (615) 905-6217
Hours: Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; closed Monday and Tuesday
OneSHOP’s Instagram declares it’s “Your one-stop shop for all things local,” and that’s an understatement. Created by local chefs and producers, it essentially offers us an opportunity to shop all our favorite local vendors without waiting for the weekend farmers’ market.
Located in oneC1TY (near KOKO’s Ice Cream and Pastaria), the marketplace delivers all the goods you need to stock your pantry, as well as delicious goodies like vegan meals from Radical Rabbit, sandwiches from Cocorico (try the G.OA.T), Perfectly Cordial beverage mixers (the Hibiscus Honeycomb is fantastic), and cakes from Lovinfromtheoven.tn (wait until you taste the banana cake!).
“I was going to use the space as an alcohol-free bar and retail location,” says Rhonda Cammon, owner of Perfectly Cordial and one of the four core partners at OneShop Nashville, “but I work with a number of small makers out of the same community kitchen, Citizen Kitchens, and knew they had some of the same growth issues that I had with the retail placement of our goods when we were not popping up at the farmers’ market. The space was located in a perfect area, and I knew it could be a bigger benefit — not only to me but to other Nashville small makers and the community.”
