I had the delight of sipping coffee with Molly Bedell last spring while discussing Nashville retail and the exciting possibility of she and her husband opening up a second location of the Aspen based Two Old Hippies store. Two Old Hippies (TOH) is a music and lifestyle store rolled into one. With apparel and accessories for men, women and children, home decor, and 2 brands of guitars (their namesake Bedell brand and Breedlove Guitars, out of Bend, OR), this store appeals to many, but is at the same time unique – a hard combination to be sure. Personally, I appreciate that I can find a $20 bracelet and a $795 necklace in the same store, both of which I would wear enthusiastically. Basically, the store is a perfect, seamless fit for Music City. In a time where the peace sign has been hijacked by every tween sparkly store across the land, TOH brings back the authenticity of the era that gave birth to the symbol. TOH embraces peace, love and music.
Today’s post is cholk-full of pictures as I just couldn’t decide what to show you, so I erred on the side of quantity. Consider this your insider’s guide.
Two Old Hippies, Nashville
- Open 10-9 Monday-Saturday and 12-6 on Sundays.
- The intersection of 12th and Pine Street in The Gulch.
Before I go any further — Men, I did a woeful job photographing options for you. They exist and are worth your time to see. But, the pictures today highlight the women’s and children’s offerings as well as the guitar selections. Sorry!
I need to break here to show off some guitars, the stage and the music room. Back to apparel in a sec.
Okay, back to apparel and accessories.
Have I whetted your appetite? I hope so as Two Old Hippies just opened – it’s a soft opening – and I’ve already been… TWICE!
Listen, if you live/work downtown or in East Nashville, this is a no brainer shop to check out. If you live in further out, take the time and check out The Gulch (I’m talking to you West Nashville, Brentwood and more – some shopping is worth leaving the neighborhood for!). With TOH open until 9PM each night, you can easily go have dinner at some trendy restaurant and check out Nashville’s newest retail store all at the same time!
