feature store: social graces

A year ago this time I was in Nashville working on the launch issue of Dabble Mag. Time certainly does fly when you’re having fun. It’s been quite the year. I thought I’d go down memory lane today and highlight a favourite store we visited. Hillsboro Village is perfect for an afternoon stroll. Fabulous boutique shopping mixed with coffee shops, a gourmet pancake house and sundae parlour. What more could you ask for?

I am a huge fan and lover of stationary. Wrapping paper, note cards, gift tags, you name it, I love it, so you can only imagine how I felt when I walked through the door of Social Graces. This adorably stylish store not only carried fabulous merchandise, but the creativity in their displays had me from the sidewalk.

Jumbo paper flowers adorn the window. Stacked and hung from interesting objects like tree stumps and metal cages, merchandising becomes an art form. Pretty gift tags are displayed on top of straw in a wooden crate. Creatively displayed, wedding invitations embellish a dress form. Wrapping paper housed in bins, spools of ribbon in large glass jars. Notebooks in hanging wire baskets. I highly recommend adding Nashville to your list of places to visit. Blown away by it’s culture, modern vibe and incredibly friendly people, I can’t wait to go back. Learn more about this vibrant city in the launch issue of Dabble Mag and take a peek at ‘Dabble does Nashville – the making of’, a fun video of our time there.
