While you’re visiting our Nashville shop, be sure to check out our neighbors also located within Marathon Village – locally owned and all unique.

Bang Candy Company

The Bang Candy Company is a Nashville-based sugar-peddler specializing in whimsical confections. It is a magical, indulgent place where candy lovers bear no shame. Indulge yourself in the gourmet marshmallows half-dipped in Belgian chocolate, enliven drinks and desserts with delicious syrups.


Vincent Peach

Vincent Peach aims to create a balance of casual elegance and sophisticated luxury through their handcrafted jewelry. Specializing in pearls, diamonds, and precious metals, they mix these elements with woven exotic leathers to give the collection a sense of captivating comfort. Don’t forget to get a glimpse of the in-house workshop where they design each piece by hand making yours exclusive to you.


Jack Daniel’s General Store

The General Store offers customers a wide-ranging selection of specialty Jack Daniel’s products and gifts, including exclusive branded apparel and accessories and commemorative guitars. Being in Music City, they carry specialty products that connect the history of Jack Daniel to the music and culture of Nashville. No booze sold here, but plenty of watering holes around to quinch your thirst!


Third Coast Comedy Club

Third Coast Comedy Club is the only comedy club in town for local comedy. And the only comedy club for all types of comedy (improv, sketch, stand-up, etc.). There’s comedy practically every night of the week with shows Wednesday-Sunday. Stop by the Green Room bar for food and drinks before, during, and after shows.

Grinder’s Switch Winery

5 family members. 7 acres of vineyards. 10 tons of grapes harvested and 10,000 gallons of wine produced last year alone. These folks are as serious about their wine as it sounds, yet they pair it with a ton of fun. Serving wine from Hickman County, Tennessee, ask Jodie and some of her fellow-winos to give you a taste of what Tennessee wine has to offer. Who doesn’t love a wine slushie after a long day of shopping?


Boswell’s Music City Harley-Davidson Store

Boswell’s carries genuine Harley-Davidson apparel and accessories, as well as other official licensed products. Throughout the shop are personal photos that tell the story of the owners (they have had Harley dealerships since the 1950s!) and antique Harley memorabilia.


Safehouse Tattoo

Safehouse has six talented artists with styles ranging all over the tattoo spectrum. If you’re feeling wild, book an appointment ahead of time or you may have to settle for a t-shirt (designed by their artists naturally) as due to high demand, they are by appointment only.


Screened Threads

A commercial screen printing business “in the back” with carefully selected vintage goods “in the front”, they have everything you need to bring home with you to remember Nashville. The hand-painted art is made by the owner’s daughter.


D.Luxe Home 

Anytime we need a gift (or maybe just something for ourself… shhh!!) we love popping into D.Luxe. An industrial, glam, and kinda kooky home store you’ll find furniture, lighting, salvage finds, oddities, gifts, and art. And for all you Sun Record lovers, plenty of their licensed products too!


Southern Engine Deli

A comfortable home-town deli with big city flavor — you won’t go home hungry. They serve hot and cold sandwiches including the famous SE Club… and yes we ate it after we photographed it! If you got your pooch with you, their outside seating is dog friendly!



Pure Nashville 
Pure Nashville is an all organic salon and spa. They have a team of creative people devoted to creating a toxin-free salon and spa experience. Their purpose is to spread awareness, educate and provide you with a space for self care. Several of us visit them regularly!


Lorraine’s Boutique / Lorraine Frances Jewelry 

Full of women’s clothing ranging from fancy to subdued, the real gem – ok, pardon the pun, is the jewelry that is hand-crafted in the space. Many items, like bottle caps, watches, typewriter keys, guitar picks, and coins, are recycled and incorporated into their jewelry, proving that jewelry can be unique wearable art.


Corsair Brewstillery

You might be asking yourself, “What’s a Brewstillery? Is it a brewery? Is it a distillery?” The answer is yes to both! Corsair’s original location focuses on high gravity beer within their malt whiskey program. Here’s what you’ll find: grain to glass story for beer and whiskey, paired tastings of experimental whiskey and unique beers, as well as beer cocktails and experimental whiskey shots. Tours are available.



Greenbrier Distillery 

Take a stroll to the end of the street and go see the stunning Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery. After three years of research, planning and hard work, brothers Andy and Charlie Nelson re-formed the business that had closed exactly 100 years earlier in 1909 during Prohibition. With the spirit in their blood, Charlie and Andy followed their hearts and devoted their lives to resurrecting Nelson’s Green Brier Whiskey made the way their great-great-great grandfather did it. We love the story of this business and it’s history so don’t miss the tour.


Marathon Music Works 

Originally built in the early 1900s, Marathon Music Works has been restored and adapted to produce a wide array of live music experiences and special events. The venue has hosted a wide range of artists from Garth Brooks to Chance The Rapper to EmmyLou Harris. Check out who’s playing on their website!

    While I absolutely LOVE the industrial aesthetic, I am not sure how these shops are totally “unique”? At first glance it looks as if they could all be one HUGE shop. Will be interesting to see independent shops evolve looks-wise once the industrial chic trend dies down a bit. Again, don’t get me wrong, I love the look and these shops look great, just not very original at this point I am afraid.

    In Ntown regularly soon. Looking forward to stopping. Have been in the Iowa store a couple of times and loved it. Please stop by our place anytime you are near Maryville Illinois. Just email me if we are not open. My brother has Parkinson’s so we are only open Thursday to Saturday.
    One request – Train safety always – Photos taken on railroad tracks promote dangerous situations.

    Now I can understand why Danny cant stay out of Nashville, lol. She could spend the day shopping there at Marathon. Check out our jr golf nationals @ reunion resort. aaugolf.org

      Visited Nashville store – disappointed to find out that Mike and Frank don’t own it. We were told they’re never there.

      1. Sarah Buckholtz

        Hi Ginny! Not sure what you heard but please let us clarify some facts for you. American Pickers is the show on History. Antique Archaeology is the store where all the picks from the show live. Many are for sale while others remain just for your enjoyment. Mike owns the business and balances his time between LeClaire and Nashville. He is in the shop working four or five times a month when he isn’t out picking. Hope this helps!

      2. Bonnie Walters

        When we were there Mike, his beautiful wife, and daughter Charlie were all there! Mike posed for pictures with a lot of the people there! Found him to be very friendly and just like what you see on American Pickers!!!

    What’s goin on I’ve tried and tried to get ahold of anyone from one of your stores to buy product and NO REPLY that sux balls I’ve got money to spend and can’t spend because I don’t know if you have the pieces I want because I got no reply

  5. Mary Lea Lepke

    My husband and I were there 2 yrs ago (May). Enjoyed going thru your store (AA). Many items I remembered from when they appeared on your show. Quite a few of these other stores were not there when we visited, so I think we will have to come back, its not that far – we are from NW Ohio.

  6. Fred Losch

    Heading to Nashville soon. Making a point to stop at the American Pickers store. Was not aware of the other shops should be a great experience, especially the brew pubs, distillery and Marathon Music Works. I’ll report back after the visit.
