Franklin is famous for its shopping scene. Whether your style is an all-inclusive mall, a charming district with cute boutiques to match or a collection of eclectic shops, you'll find it in Franklin.
For the variety of a trendy strip with the convenience of a mall, make a shopping stop at the Factory at Franklin
. Literally housed in what used to be a factory, the place was renovated and reopened primarily as a creative space. The rules to open up shop are simple: be creative, unique or artistic. Those guidelines have led to shops like Amish Excellence
, a hardwood store, and Cherie's Unique Collections, along with dozens of other specialty shops, art galleries and restaurants.
Historic Downtown Franklin
If the charm of downtown doesn't immediately lure you in, the sheer volume of shopping certainly will. Home to upscale boutiques and galleries galore, this district offers more than enough to keep shopping enthusiasts entertained. Give the trendy vibe a try at Ivey on Main or Emmaline
, both high-end boutiques that carry big names and the latest trends. Accessorize the look with a stop in What's In Store
, sure to meet all your jewelry and shoe needs. For a more eclectic experience, take a look in Bijou. With its Anthropologie-esque vibe and impressive selection, it's sure to satisfy.
But downtown's shopping experience includes much more than clothes. Find accessories and eccentricities at the Heirloom Shop or check out the latest in stationary styles at Rock Paper Scissors
. If you prefer to gallery-gaze, don't miss Rare Prints Gallery
. Kids are taken care of too; Main Street Toy Co. offers toys so unique even parents will be pleased.
