This is my BEST OF THE SOUTHSIDE series! I am here to help you “Love Where You Live” and every year I come across things I need to share about what makes the Southside great! These are all the small businesses, services, food, shops and activities that made a big impression on me and I want to honor them by sharing with you!
I live in Center Grove, and in this area of the southside we mostly have franchise retail. It used to be that you had to go to Brown County to Nashville, Indiana for some unique shopping, and that was a fun day. Going to Nashville for the day is still a great way to spend the day with family or some girlfriends! But in the past few years, Franklin, Indiana’s downtown area has become a really great place to shop for local, unique and handmade goods! There are some great shops in Franklin and you can even make a day of it!
One of my favorite shops in Franklin this year CAME TO GREENWOOD! So truly, when my favorite shop is 5 minutes from my house I cannot contain my excitement! Now you want to go, right? So here it is:
Greenwood & The Southside’s Best Boutique Gift Shop:
Trinkets & Threads
With two locations on the southside, you are sure to find some treasures at Trinkets & Threads! This store is so unique in that it is a vendor model. Vendors from the area rent space, but it won’t feel in-cohesive like a booth antique market. The owner, Amy, carefully curates the items that are available. She has a few vendors who are so talented at restoring antique furniture, most by chalk paint. These pieces fit so well into modern interiors! There are artisan crafters and jewelry-makers. Home Decor is everywhere and so cute and one of a kind! She also has a vendor in each shop who makes body products like soaps and lotions. There is something for everyone and it is the best place to look when you need a gift for someone special!
You will find Trinkets & Threads in Franklin on Jefferson Street just two blocks west of the square. And in Greenwood, they are on S.R. 135 & Main between Stacked Pickle and House of Tokyo!
