weekend finds & new local favorites

Rainy Saturdays are a perfect time to grab a friend and having a little shopping spree.  Since April, I had planned to check out the flea market. One little problem, I had put it in my calendar so early that I didn’t even realize I had put it down for the wrong weekend.  That outing will have to wait until next weekend.  Oops! Luckily, I did find this out before heading out for our outing. 

So, Saturday morning I was sitting on the couch early with no idea what to do with my day.  The first idea of getting some sun was quickly squashed after seeing the weather report.  Next idea on the list… a day of shopping. 

My friend, Ellen, and I decided we would spend the day checking out some stores around Nashville that we had never visited.  It was a great day, and we didn’t even break the bank!   Here are some of the great finds that I had to bring home with me… and one purchase that is being saved for a little later.

{two} Hobo wallet with free personalization from Nashville Trunk & Bag | $18
{three} custom Lotus silver necklace from Whats In Store | $37
{four} mint green kitchen cart from Nadeau | $144

The kitchen cart was a perfect size.  Still, after finding out they expected to get more in a range of colors, I decided to wait to see what other options may come available. 

I can't even tell you how much fun I had searching through these stores. Each of these stores has become new favorite!  Check them out, either locally or online!  What are some of your favorite local stores?

  1. How fun! I love finding stores that are off the beaten path. Looks like you spent your Saturday the best way possible, given the weather and all.
