Concierge.com's insider take:
Opened in late October 2008, this vintage store and showroom is co-owned by British supermodel Karen Elson, the wife of fellow Nashville transplant Jack White of the White Stripes and Raconteurs. The store fills a simple white two-story house: The first floor holds an affordable mix of secondhand pieces like Western shirts and cotton day dresses aimed at a college clientele (Belmont University is across the street), while the upstairs features a pristine selection of antique couture by the likes of Chanel and Ossie Clark—handpicked by Karen on her international travels.
Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10 am to 6 pm.
