You can't come to Nashville without making a stop at the legendary Hatch Show Print. Since the late 1800's, they've been making hand-printed wood block and letter press posters for all of our favorite musicians. They just recently moved into a new shop after being on Broadway for many years, but lucky for us, they have kept the original studio intact in the new location, and now you can actually watch posters roll right off the press! I promise—you won't leave without an amazing Hatch Show Print original!
Kayce Hughes is not only a dear friend of mine, but one of the most stylish and talented women you'll ever meet. And her store is everything you would expect—pink walls with playful bamboo furniture and the perfect vintage floral sofas. It's like walking into your best southern girlfriend's living room. And, of course, Kayce's store is filled to the brim with the perfect mix of colorful classics for women and children. It's my go-to spot for the perfect playful accessory. This busy mom of seven, designer and business owner makes it all seem effortless. We only hope a bit of her magic rubs off when we wear her signature preppy-meets-vintage designs.
An insider tip, although they don't yet have stores, by appointment you can check out two of our favorite local lighting companies, Southern Lights Electric and Sideshow Sign Company. These guys are doing amazing work, and you can find many of Southern Lights fixtures in our favorite local coffee stop, Barista Parlor and Rolf +Daughters. You'll spot Sideshows vintage inspired signs at Imogene + Willie and at Biscuit Love.
Wonders on Woodlands is owned by the cutest couple, Wayne and Debbie—they're so charming, you'll want to invite them over for dinner. And, true to the name, this sweet vintage house—located in East Nashville on Woodland Street—is packed with amazing treasures. This design savvy couple has an exceptional eye for curiosities and beautiful mid-century scores. It's one of our favorite places to spend a Saturday.
All of this shopping is sure to make you hungry, and we have a few food favorites that are not to be missed. Rolf + Daughters is our go-to dinner spot located in Germantown, and Mas Tacos is a must-try for lunch in East Nashville.
