Day 667's shop crush: Revival
Wes and I went to Chattanooga, Tennessee for a little weekend getaway. Chattanooga is neat little city on the banks of the Tennessee River, and after just two days, I filed in the "I could live there one day" folder, just for future reference. It had kind of a hipster vibe that reminded me of another Southern city that I love, Little Rock, Arkansas (yes, Arkansas is cool!). I have a lot to share, but let's just start with a great shop, Revival Uncommon Goods.
Revival is located in the oldest building in Chattanooga, the Passenger Baggage Building, built in 1850. It has a great mix of fabulous new lines of furniture, accessories and tableware (John Derian, Atticus, -- love that one -- Match, Juliska and Bobo Intriguing Objects) mixed with one-of-a-kind antiques that owner brings over from buying trips to Europe.
And I wish I had gotten a shot of the incredible pillows, but picture gorgeous linen mixed with silk taffeta. They cost as much as we spent on the hotel for the weekend, but man, they were pretty!
Also in the building is Amanda Pinson Jewelry, which had the most lovely space (above).
