Hey RoosterPosted on May 19, 2013 | 0 comments
When I heard about the brand new Hey Rooster General Store that just opened in East Nashville, I put it on my mental to-do list of places I needed to check out. By coincidence, I was driving along Gallatin yesterday and a gorgeous mint green narrow building with a “General Store” sign hanging above a bright yellow door surrounded by flowers caught my eye. It was Hey Rooster and I happened to have my camera with me, so I pulled a quick left turn and parked my car so I could check out their new digs.
Courtney was perched behind the counter and greeted me with a warm hello upon entering and information on all the handmade products sold in her store. She’s originally from Nashville, but has spent time in Louisiana and New York working in architecture and with Etsy, so it’s no wonder why the store is decked out with stunning treasures made by her friends (my favorite are the Brooklyn Grooming mustache waxes + peanut almond butter!) and family memorabilia like her lake house refrigerator and mother’s sewing machine, among carefully selected flea market finds. She has phenomenal taste.
She’s open until 5PM today, so take a little Sunday trip to her store and say hello! I promise you’ll find a one-of-a-kind treasure to gift a friend or yourself.
