My talented and sweet friend Elise Joseph of Pennyweight hosted her very first pop-up yesterday at The Poston House: a quaint two-story building close to Centennial Park. The event was filled with unique pieces made by local and national artisans hand selected by Elise. A respected curator, stylist and blogger, Elise is now also pursuing a lifelong dream: opening her own storefront. The pop-up was a nice taste of what to expect, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.

Some of you might remember my studio visit with handbag designer Annie Williams, but since then, Annie’s Germantown space has evolved and you’ll now find Han Starnes of Josi Faye quietly working away in the charming loft above. Josi Faye focuses on knitwear, which is created and knitted by hand or on hand-operated knitting machines, and each piece is produced in limited runs. Keeping minimal design at the forefront, Annie still specializes in leather bag construction where she uses hides from vintage sources or Horween Tannery in small batches, meaning each collection is limited as well.

As you can see, both ladies have a similar aesthetic and their studio spaces mesh perfectly. Combining their talents, the designers have also teamed up to create some unique pieces such as their new home collection.

Be sure to check out Annie’s leather bag collection here and Han’s knitwear line here.

Behold United Record Pressing, the holy grail of vinyl and largest record pressing plant in the United States. In operation since 1949 (formerly under the moniker “Southern Plastics”), this plant dates back to pressing the first 7-inch Beatles records in North America, to now where they’re creating everything from liquid center vinyl, tri-color vinyl and unique sizing such as 5″, 8″, 13″ records — this is just the tip of their rich history and innovation.

Walk into the factory and every artist you can imagine is being sweetly pressed and packaged. Walk upstairs, and you’ll find the “Motown Suite,” a fully functioning apartment-style living space that was created specifically for their top clients (Motown, Vee-Jay Records) being run by people of color during the ’60s when the south was still segregated. The spacious top floor above the factory includes a common area with a bar and turntable, party room, full bathroom, bedroom (complete with a pair of mystery shoes) and kitchen. The best part is, they’ve kept almost all the original furnishings and ’60s decor.

If you’re itching to check out the plant for yourself, they offer tours every Friday at 11AM for only $10. Get ready to see this well-oiled machine roar.

Welcome to Union Station Hotel, which used to be a 19th-century railroad station in downtown Nashville. Both inside and out, you’ll find Victorian architecture and Gothic design in every detail. The original 65-foot stained glass ceiling adorned with gold-leaf medallions, oak-accents and Italian marble floors will make you stop and stare.
