The Only Vintage Guide You’ll Ever Need: Nashville Edition

Get ready to thrift your way through Music City like a pro (or at least like our vintage buyer Juliana).

Nashville isn’t just a whisky-soaked playground for country music and comfort food. There’s a burgeoning vintage scene, too, which we discovered thanks to Juliana McWilliams, the boss behind our own killer selection. In the spirit of the wild wild West (and to kick-off our Rodeo Revival collection), we tagged along on her recent buying trip to bring you the definitive guide to Tennessee thrift:

Queen of Stars Vintage Studio

Sisters Penny and Jemima Pearl started thrifting, and subsequently selling, as a side-hustle when they lived in New York. Now based in Nashville, the girls operate a small pop up out of a studio that’s as tight as their curated gems, which are found all over the country at estate sales or painstakingly scoured on eBay.

What to expect: Lots of hard-to-find girly dresses from the 60s and 70s, alongside a selection of coats from the same era peppered with lots of Western leather goods with serious sexy-time appeal. Pay special attention to their T-shirt selection, a delightful edit of varsity-meets-novelty.

Where to find it:

Saturdays at: 427 Chestnut Street, Studio 227

Libby Callaway’s Personal Collection

Libby Callaway is a Nashville legend. The former New York fashion editor is an avid thrifter, rifling through local and remote shops to find super special pieces with a story. Listening to Libby wax encyclopedic about each item in her collection makes us remember why we love fashion in the first place.

What to expect: A considered mix of designer treasures – think Yves Saint Laurent leather trenches or the vintage Manuel fringed vest we found (!) – alongside some of her own family’s hand-me-down Laura Ashley gems.

Goodbuy Girls

A mix of cult Western vintage and indie-designed new is what to expect at Tanya Montana Coe’s Goodbuy Girls. With racks of printed dresses and walls of patterned boots, Tanya – who herself is a musician – has artfully assembled a closet worthy of an indie music darling.

What to expect:

Little bohemian dresses (Isabel Marant, eat your heart out), lots of boots, belts and perfect fitted logo Tees and tanks to round out your wardrobe. Oh, and it’s all at prices that won’t make you broke (we suggest you save those pennies for whisky at Red Door instead).

Where to find it:

1108 Woodland St, Nashville, TN 37206

High Class Hillbilly

Nashville musician and current girl crush Nikki Lane‘s curated shop is a hidden trove (it’s literally tucked behind a parking lot – mysterious!) of spangly Americana and rock chick staples she and her team find on the road.

What to expect: Loads of Nudie-inspired riffs on fancy-fringed Western, alongside the dopest, worn-out vintage T-shirt collection we’ve ever seen. The boot wall – a Nashville pre-requisite – is the best in town.

Where to find it:

1705 Eastland Ave, Nashville, TN 37206
