In Tennessee, shopping can be as low-key as hanging out with a friend while browsing our malls and outlets, antiques and crafts, letterpress shops and farmers markets. Elevate your passion for shopping into an art form and an adventure.

Here’s the skinny on shopping in Tennessee: Try a lively sidewalk shopping trip to bustling Hill Center Green Hills in Nashville, for the perfect blend of Main Street atmosphere and upscale attitude.

Visit H. Audrey, where owner Holly Williams, a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and the daughter of Hank Williams Jr., dresses Nashville’s fashionistas. Bring home a memento from the famous Hatch Show Print.

Indulge yourself! Knoxville’s new, one-of-a-kind Patricia Nash Concept Store offers stylish, savvy, handcrafted Italian leather handbags, boots and small leather goods. Explore made-in-Tennessee shopping at Arrowcraft, a shop of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, in Gatlinburg. Appalachian Center for Craft in Smithville offers both shopping and classes in glass and metal working, sculpture, pottery, fiber arts and more. The historic eight-mile loop of the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community is designated a Tennessee Heritage Arts & Crafts Trail.

Treat yourself to a West Tennessee freshwater pearl and find unique treasures in historic districts such as Collierville’s Main Street or the “historically hip” Cooper-Young District of Memphis.

Tennessee Pewter

Since 1973, matriarchs passed down the signature water pitchers, brides registered for the goblets and newborns received the julep cups. Last decade, a beloved business called Tennessee Pewter in Somerville went up for sale. Memphis native, Kathleen Armour Walker, received pieces over the years. “I knew the work was physically demanding and dirty,” she remembers. “But I said to myself, ‘I’m going to buy this place and keep it going.’” And she did.
