Yesterday, we headed south of Nashville to a town called Franklin. Tree-lined streets of Craftsman and Victorian homes boast elegant gardens and shady yards with iron benches and bubbling fountains. It’s a quiet, beautiful, and historic town, and one of its greatest draws are the antique galleries and furniture shops. You can seriously get lost for hours upon hours wandering through the narrow cubbies and booths of treasures.
If you’re outfitting a home or exploring a new style for your kitchen, visit Franklin. Here you can find kitchen tables made of reclaimed barn wood and one-of-a-kind mobiles of silverplated serving tools and vintage pitchers. Of course, the antique china and silverware abound, but it’s the artistic reinterpreted pieces that make turning every corner in the tightly-packed shops so interesting.
And in Franklin you’ll find beautifully cleaned and restored linens that tell stories of beautiful family moments from eras past. If you’ve inherited some from your own family, you’ll need to learn how to care for them. Watch this step-by-step informational video from Martha Stewart.
