We're planning a road trip to Nashville over Labor Day and are looking for funky, indie-friendly shops.  Toy/gift shops especially.  Any suggestions would be welcome.  Thanks!

Plowhaus - an artist coop in East Nashville - there's probably more stuff in the little five points area of East Nashville that I don't know about
tHE aRT hOUSE - art studio on 12th south, they have art and some crafty things for sale and some jewelry
Savants - cool vintage boutique also on 12th south
We have an awesome Farmers Market
Check 21st Ave - they have some cool boutique type stores

Hope that helps!

There are some cool little joints on 21st. 
Pangea
Fire Finch
And if you head towards Belmont University there's a hip little store called The Mad Mod.  I think maybe it's on Belmont.
I just moved here so I'm fairly useless sometimes... but you might like those joints.

Awesome ladies!  Thanks a bunch.  I'm very excited about our trip.  If any one else has suggestions, please send 'em my way- still 3 weeks until we hit the road.

Over by 100 Oaks Mall there is a strip of FANTASTIC shops in the Berry Hill area. Check out Curious Heart, Eden, and the Beaded Bungalow.

Sorry I'm so late getting in here, but I wanted to suggest Pre to Post Modern.  It's a shop on 8th Avenue (2110 8th Ave).  They have modern furniture ($$$$) in half of the store, and vintage modern ($) in the other half as well as old 7" records, vintage clothing, great vintage knick-knacks like martini glasses, stirrers, nightlights, tin signs, etc.  Something for everyone!

Hope I'm not too late!

OH man.  I was trying to remember the name of that store and couldn't for the life of me.  The only thing I could remeber distinctly... besides the cool furnature and that it was featured on HGTV recently was that Jack White had been seen furnishing his home there a few months ago and that it was made into a big freakin' deal.

...Jack White bought his light bulbs from my boyfriend (who works at a crazy store aptly named Light Bulb Depot) and that very same day I went into labour...I swear, that man has magical powers...

I know you've probably already taken the trip, but in case anyone else is wondering:

I would second Berry Hill. I love Curious Heart!

Also, Ten Thousand Villages in Green Hills is a fair trade gift shop.  You can get handmade items from all over the world that have been fairly paid for.  I highly recommend this shop!

I know your trip is long over but this could be helpful to other people planning trips.

I love Karma Botique!! They have handmade clothing along with incense, jewelry and other awesomeness!!
It is within walking distance of the Hard Rock Cafe, Joes Crab Shack and the strip of bars on Broadway.

Karma Boutique
172 2nd Ave N, Nashville, Tennessee 37201
(615) 736-7540‎

they have a facebook page
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nashville-TN/Karma/268676460202?ref=ts
