I went for a weekend getaway trip to Chattanooga with food blogger friend, Amy Harris of Amy Avenue. This wasn't the normal brunch feasting, coffee discovering, shopping excursion trip - I'll perhaps post about that one day, because I have some more favs than what I'm mentioning today. It was a time of R&R that included boating on the Chattanooga River while munching on Cadence Coffee scones baked by the talented Michelle Thompson.
Really, the only thing I had to do was stop by my two favorite stores on the north shore. Someone recently asked where I shop in Chatt, so here you go:
HOMEGROWN SILVER AND STONE
This is my go to for stacking bands. The bands come at a super affordable price in sterling silver, gold and rose gold filled. They are the only ones that I have found that don't fade, tarnish or change shape. I'm also loving their gold filled dot and bar earring studs. In case you don't have the chance to venture to Chattanooga, you can visit their Etsy store here.
Of course one of my favorite stores on the north shore is a vintage store. I've found the best dresses, scarves, and jeans here over the years. Collective Clothing recently just moved and the space is SO much better. They have everything from a fortune telling machine (like in the movie BIG) to records to all things Americana to clothing from every era.
