Featured Nashville Home Store: Gilchrist GilchristThis is the first installment of our "Featured Nashville Home Store" posts, which will introduce you guys (assuming you didn't already know about them) to locally owned Nashville shops filled with yummy goods for your pad. This location has been pre-approved by both Faith Hill and Taylor Swift, who told Nashville Lifestyles, "I love Gilchrist Gilchrist, this family owned shop in Berry Hill. I bought a lot of cute decorations and furniture for my apartment there. For the girls who like shabby chic, go there."
You'll find giant fluffy pillows, crazy good-smelling candles, and lots more gift items, tucked amongst chipping antique furniture and other sweet and whimsical vintage finds. Plus you can special order from several lines of bed linens. And because both the shop owner Genia Gilchrist and her mother, who often helps man the front desk, have French bulldogs--named Norman and Hazel--there will likely be a chubby, snorting Frenchie scuttling out to greet you. Nothing better.
With a focus on "vintage living and antiques," Gilchrist Gilchrist is stuffed to the "gills" with white, cream and blush-colored home decor, clothing, and antiques. This is the place to shop if the "French country cottage" style (known 10 years ago as "shabby chic") is right up your alley.
This little shop, open since 2000 in Berry Hill, may be easy to pass by, as it's set up discreetly inside what was once a brick residence. Definitely consider stopping at the beautiful Gilchrist Gilchrist next time you find yourself on Bransford Ave, which cuts through the heart of Berry Hill.
