The Mill Storehouse, A Charming Boutique & Farm to Table Market in Cookeville, TN
Many little girls have dreams and aspirations of owning their own little shop and filling it full of their favorite things and opening it to the public so everyone can enjoy. I (April Smith Patterson), along with my husband Nick, have done just that. The Mill Storehouse was opened, and with its charm and entrusted staff at the helm, has developed into far more than the dreams of that once little girl. It is a sweet little shop right on Hwy 111 North in Cookeville, TN, right beside the Honest Abe Log Homes Cookeville Model.
From the beginning, it has been a desire that our business become a real marketplace, hosting many kinds of shops, so we were very serious about the name. Quite honestly, we struggled with that. We sought the advice of close family and friends for naming ideas and suggestions. Finally, my mother-in-law came up with the word “storehouse” and that became the base for creating the name. As a side note, the word “storehouse” is very special to us because the Bible refers to it in Deuteronomy 28:12: “The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.” We hope everyone who enters our shop will be blessed greatly.
“The Mill” is actually the term we call the area where our family's businesses are headquartered in Moss, Tennessee. Everyone refers to what we do with our manufacturing businesses like Honest Abe Log Homes, Barky Beaver Mulch and Soil Mix, and our hardwood operations as “the mill.” Naturally, we wanted to incorporate that in with the storehouse name. Hence, “The Mill Storehouse” was born!
It, like its neighbor, is a log cabin that was moved from another location. As soon as you pull in the drive you are intrigued by the signage and sweet appeal of the building. As you walk up, the merchandise displayed down the porch makes you want to start shopping immediately. Once you open the door, you will find everything a boutique should have, with clothing and modest apparel, accessories, shoes, home décor, and so much more.
While we do have an array of different priced items, we focus on bringing in good quality, southern styled, and modest products at an affordable price. That’s what we strive to bring to Cookeville, Tennessee, and I hope our customers will see that we are doing just that. We carry some brands exclusive to The Mill Storehouse, and we also carry an array of home décor and farmhouse style items. We also just purchased an engraving machine, so we now offer customized products on many items of wood, stainless steel, glass, etc., available to take home the same day, though most of the time within minutes.
Along with the storehouse, farming also holds a special place in our hearts and you will see a touch of that at The Mill Storehouse as well. My husband and I farm and enjoy being good stewards of the land the Lord blessed us with. We love raising healthy crops and livestock to better feed our family and community. We are thrilled to be selling our Acres of Grace Farms custom raised Akaushi meat and fresh, free-range eggs, along with fruits and vegetables while they are in season.
We would be honored to have you stop by, see what all we have to offer, and hopefully find some great things you’ll cherish!
