This weekend I ventured out to East Nashville, which some folks lovingly call East Nasty. That was really my first true visit there. I'd eaten a meal or two across the bridge, but Saturday my pal Emily B. and I took our sweet time. Below are some photographic highlights.
Perhaps my favorite stop was Wonders on Woodland, which is an excellent antiques store on Woodland Street. Unfortunately, they do not have a website. What I liked most was that this shop was highly curated. It is not what Barb (my mom) would call a dig store. I had office supply envy just inside the door.
Upstairs was this mantelpiece with artwork. The one in the middle reminded me of Joni Mitchell.
Don't these chairs fulfill your every Mad Men fantasy?
This was a nice deco installation.
This pillow pretty much says it all, no? It's an item at Old Made Good on McGavock Pike. At this store, they take vintage items and often rework them to be quite whimsical. They had a whole men's room, full of old hunting memorabilia, vintage gentlemen's magazines, and lots of plaid work shirts.
And it wouldn't be a complete post without a specs shoutout. This was a super charming necklace on display at OMG. (Isn't that clever?)
We also visited Eclectic Design + Boutique on Porter Road, where I picked up a candle from local Etsy seller Oil & Wax. Hint: there's a great chance you'll see more on this soon.
I hope you enjoyed this min-tour through the East Nasty. And I hope you're gearing up for eating turkey, giving thanks, and spending some monies. Mazel!
