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 River Freshwater Pearl Museum, Farm, Tour & Jewelry Showroom

John Latendresse created his pearl farm in 1980, after extensive research for ideal conditions for pearl production. He and Bob Keast implanted hundreds of Tennessee River Washboard Mussels with small pieces of mussel shells and set them off in nets in the water. After a five-year wait, the mussels were pulled up and cracked open, yielding a harvest of freshwater pearls. Some Tennesseans make a living as divers, swimming to the river bottom to pull the mussels up. Visit Birdsong Resort, where you will find gorgeous pearls, the farm, museum and marina.
