One of the more tourist-y things that I wanted to do while I was in Nashville was to shop for cowboy boots. Now, boots are REALLY expensive - so Sarah and I headed to Boots n' More hoping that we could strike it lucky and take advantage of their buy one pair get two free deal and split the cost.
|I was in love with these mustard yellow boots!|
I was lucky and found many pairs that I could've easily taken home (particularly those mustard yellow numbers).
However, Sarah could not find any affordable/nice pairs in her size, so I had to walk on by. Sniff-sniffle. No matter, it was still fun to window shop!
After our mildly disappointing boot shopping fail, we walked a few doors down to Hatch Show Print. Hatch Show Print is a division of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Founded in 1879, it is one of the oldest letterpress printing shops in America. A quick Google search led me to this wonderful video which gives a glimpse into Hatch (Bethany waited on me at the counter). If you have an affinity for typography and design, like I do, do yourself a favor and watch!
I even got a shot of Huey, one of the Hatch cats. He did not move a muscle from the postcard rack the entire time we were in the store.
I purchased a Pickin' and Printin' poster to bring home as a Nashville memento, then we were on our way.
