Rosebuds, Relics and Remnants of the Past....

Erin of Toteally Posh didn't discover her real nitche until her sweet daughter was born.  Her first DIY project ever was making a cape for her Barbie when she was eight years old.  In 2000, she began her business making custom purses, totes and diaper bags (hence the name Tote-ally).  Soon you could find her creations in the French Shoppe here in Nashville.

When she found she was expecting her baby girl, her passion exploded into  sweet adornments for children.  She has a very successful Etsy shop (but it is closed temporarily until Bella Rustica) but for now you can keep up with her exceptional designs here.

Erin takes pride in every garmet as if it were for her own daughter. Look
for her in the main barn.

Wanda of Upcycled Interiors is coming all the way from South Carolina!  She owns Grapevine Marketplace in downtown Greer, SC and shares her love for all things vintage with 17 other dealers there.  She's was stricken with the "RoundTop" fever last fall and loves to take her salvage style creations on the road.

Wanda recently launched her own re-purposed fair and salvage style market this past June and it was a huge success.   We look forward to meeting her and are hopeful that her entrepreneural spirit will rub off on us!

Another local treasure is Colleen Meffe.  She is in the business of redemption.  Finding old windows and doors and giving them a new beautiful life.
Message boards and memory boards.  Look closely and you'll see her lovely caligraphy in handwritten sentiments alongside vintage images and photos. Much of her inspiration comes from old letters from her Uncle Jay, whose letters always ended with an Irish Blessing or inspirational thought.

   Her work is currently on display at The Iron Gate in Historic Downtown Franklin.

Thanks for stopping by!
Ciao, ya'll,
