Antiquing in Franklin

10.31.2016

How was your weekend? We had not been to visit our son, daughter in law and the grands in quite some time so we made a trip to Nashville and I always love to stop in Franklin to visit some favorite antique spots. I could live in Franklin, but Mr. Savvy says no. At least I get to visit the area and shop occasionally. If you have not ever visited Franklin check it out some time especially if you are in the Nashville area.

First stop Antiques at the Factory.  Lots of nice antiques with a mix of new things and I lucked up and brought three things home from here.



Huge scale.



I really wanted this, but it was really large and I was getting the ole eye roll from you know who.

Another nice basket,but I passed it up.



Love old lamps.

Next was City Farmhouse. I used to visit them in their old location and now they are at The Factory.







Shopping can make me hungry so we ate at Puckett's Grocery and sat outside in the shade since it was very warm with a nice breeeze. Good food and service.

After lunch we stopped at PD's Furniture, but I didn't take any pictures since I didn't care for what they sold. It was all reproductions from China and probably India. Right next door was The Barn Door filled with old pieces plus they do custom framing.

Pretty wide planked table.

Lots of cool things in the Barn Door. I almost bought one of these old French cafe chairs. Really good price.


I'm going to stop here because I took quite a few pictures in the next store.

See anything you like and have you ever visited Franklin, Tn. before?

Happy hunting, have an awesome week, and Happy Halloween!

  1. Just driving through Franklin makes me happy. It's such a beautiful town. Next time we are going to stop for sure! The husband always has such a hard time finding a place to park! I'm going to make sure I'm driving when we get close next month when we're in the area.

  3. Yes, we go through that area several times a year. We are not big on Nashville - although it is a great place - we are just not big city peeps. Franklin has built up quite a bit over the years. We LOVE Leipers Fork and have stayed there in the past - renting a little civil war era house. Beautiful horse country and so scenic and peaceful.

    Hope you share some pix of the grands!

    1. Tina, we have never done the Nashville scene thing either. Our son went to college there and stayed so we just go visit him. Not sure I will be sharing any pics of them. Took a couple with my phone and haven't gone through them yet. They don't sit still.

  5. Love Franklin! We eat at Puckett's too when we visit. I have not done much antiquing there. I assumed the antique stores were pricey like most things in Franklin.

    1. The shops I go to have pretty good pricing. Some pieces are high, but what I would expect them to be in most cities.

  6. I love Franklin and live only a few miles from there. I would love to live there also. If you have not been you need to go to Nolensville, Tn. It is a very small town but has many antique shops. They are only open Thursday through Sunday. Enjoy your day!

  8. I was there briefly years ago, but I had flown into Nashville and rented a car, so I couldn't bring anything home. Such a fun town.

  10. I've never visited that area of Tennessee before. Thanks for the tour of the stores. I love those green cafe chairs but my fav is the last piece with all the drawers. Wonder what the price is of that piece. I'm always drawn to cabinets or boxes with lots of drawers.

  11. Wow, great stuff!
    We went to four vide-greniers (like mass garage sales) yesterday but found nothing. Just got lost in the countryside, despite a GPS. But last night we drove for an hour in the dark through the mountains to some little lost village, where we picked up a crystal chandelier that was on the French equivalent of craigslist. Gorgeous. I drove at about 30 mph the entire way home, I was so worried about getting it back safely.

  13. Franklin has been on my list to visit. Well be traveling again in March. I'll see how far from Atlanta it is to drive, that's where we fly into. Maybe I'll check into flying into Nashville.
    Thanks for the tips.

  14. The moment I saw the wicker baskets I thought I bet Kim bought these!! I would have had a hard time resisting the zinc tubs for the garden. We passed a stall set up outside someone's house in a little village half an hour from us yesterday. I spied some white pots and said to our youngest daughter we must stop on the way home. Stop we did, I picked up a perfect ironstone tureen, marked on the base and in excellent condition for just a handful of euros, so happy, such a chance find!

  15. I was there about 5 years ago in December. They have a Dickens Festival which is REALLY neat! I would love to go back for that... like first weekend in December. Street vendors and people in Dickens era attire. The Cratchit family!

  16. Absolutely LOVE Franklin. It is about 3.5 hours from me. One of my favorite stores on Main Street is the Iron Gate. I would love to move to Franklin or Leiper's Fork but I can't get my husband to agree.

  17. Have never been to Franklin although I've been to Tennessee to visit my husband's family when they were alive. But they were closer to Knoxville. Looks like a very fun place to visit and shop. Thanks for the tour.

  18. Franklin is nice but once you get a parking space-do not try and move your car til you are ready to leave. I made the mistake of trying to move and park at Pucketts for lunch...I finally gave up. I didn't particulary care for Leiper's Fork there just isn't much there. I enjoyed Franklin alot.
