After receiving requests from clients, designer Stephanie Sabbe took the plunge and opened her Heirloom Artifacts storefront.
What can customers find at Heirloom Artifacts? I’ve had wonderful shopping experiences on travels abroad and brought back many special pieces. I wanted to create the same experience in Nashville and introduce customers to different makers. They can find everything from Turkish rugs and vintage objects to Japanese ceramics. Plus, our pillows are all handmade locally by an amazing seamstress.
Talk to us about shopping in person. No matter how beautiful things are online, you still can’t touch or see them in person—I feel this is essential.
Your other programming sounds interesting, too. We provide a teaching space to help customers discover the perfect pieces, and also offer workshops on varying artistic disciplines including still-life painting, chain stitching and calligraphy. It’s become a fun, creative place for people to gather.
