Road Trip to Kentucky and Tennessee.....Blue Moon

First stop on our 3 day trip was to get some architectural pieces from Andrew Garcia, owner of Blue Moon Antique Market in Franklin, KY.

He has a great selection of doors, windows, shutters, hardware, moldings, columns etc., at really affordable prices--well worth the trip! He also has unique stuff like these fabulous 9' window/green shutter frames, cathedral windows, and other totally cool architectural treasures-also very affordable.

Franklin is only a short drive north of Nashville, and I wish I had brought a trailer, so I could bring home more stuff! (I am finding that as much as I love my truck, it was easier to load a van, and I swear I can get more stuff in a van, with a lot less trouble)

Be sure to give Andrew a call if you are in that area--he is very nice and will give you good deals!

I will have to make a note of it. I went right by Franklin last week and will go that way again in a couple more weeks.

What a beautiful post! It pays to get to know good people. Sometime antique shops can have such snobby people working in them. I wish I lived close by as would definetly make the journey to this lovely store. Thanks for sharing with me today. Hugs Anne

Found your blog from My Desert Cottage. I love, love, love all the old stuff! Georgia has some fantastic old homes! Went to Sandersville one summer and just loved the little town. I am a Floridian..grew up on the southeast coast...and loved it. I am a beach person! Your pics are great! A real eye full.
Come by and visit me soon.
Smiles and Blessings,
