Explore Sneak Peek: Alabama Chanin | Florence, AL

When Aissa, Sleepy Fox Photography and I first started our "Explore" series the three of us packed up and set out for Alabama Chanin, home to an artisan couture line of cotton goods and the sweetest little cafe in Florence. The adventure turned out so well that we are submitting the images to Kinfolk Magazine but I couldn't resist sharing a few of my favorite subtle snaps.

The hectic holiday season has put a little crimp in our plans to have a new explore feature every week but please hang in there as we get back on track!

Explore: White's Mercantile | Nashville, TN

White's Mercantile, this week's Explore destination, was one of my favorite stops in Nashville (I know, they're all my favorite...). The expertly curated gas station turned general store looks as though it's been going for years, slowly collecting eclectic treasures and piling on the charm along the way. Instead, White's doors have been open for only twelve months, not that it's stopped the store from becoming a 12 South staple. With goods ranging from cozy wool blankets to unique baby gifts, stationery and pantry must-haves, the space has definitely achieved it's mission to become a place where you can find all of your favorite things in one stop. There is something here for everyone!

Aissa, Sleepy Fox & I had a blast exploring the sweet mercantile and chatting with the wonderful staff. Don't forget to check out each of their sites for more details!
