Shop the Nashville Flea Market
You’ll also find Charlie Duncan there. He has a fantastic collection of old cooking and gardening books that are not just good-looking but also great for recipes and inspiration.
There’s tons of vintage costume jewelry at flea markets, and lots of it is broken, making it very affordable. We found a plethora at Joel Chapman and Anita Farcinade’s booth, Antiques Thrift 'N More in Antique Alley. Broken or flawed pieces are perfect for repurposing. My favorite thing to do with antique brooches is to make napkin rings.
It’s just a short drive from the fairgrounds so save your ticket for reentry on the same day.
