Some of the stores are old houses, such as the one below. Nashville was/is an artist colony. The town is nothing but shops, restaurants, and inns.
The stores do sell some of the hand made items made by the local artists, but they also add some of the "made in China" type stuff to the mix.
Either way, I always get inspired when I go shopping in town.
I thought these roosters were cute!
The chainsaw carver was there again this year.
See the guy below...on the end...in front of the picket fence....
More inspiration from one of our favorite stores, "Michaels."
They had these fence posts all over town. I loved them!
Fiona, I think you'd like it. It's a three hour drive for us, which is why we make reservations and spend the night. But make reservations before you go. We make ours a year in advance. Weekends at this time of year are almost impossible....and way too crowded. I recommend weekdays if possible.
PS - Don't forget to enter my candy corn dishcloth give away on the last post. Drawing Tuesday.
