Southern Accents is a 45 year old family owned and operated business that resides in the heart of historical downtown Cullman, Alabama. We love our community and the small town values of the people we are surrounded by. While the internet has allowed us the opportunity to reach customers worldwide, having a physical presence in a second location has been an idea that, in recent years, we have considered. We’ve always believed that for this idea to become reality, the right opportunity would present itself and that when it did, we would know it. That right opportunity was recently presented to us! We now have a presence at The Tanner House in Nolensville, Tennessee and we are beyond thrilled!
Nolensville is a small, thriving town in East Tennessee. The area very much reminds us of downtown Cullman. When our good friend Mike Minard approached us with an idea that would allow us to showcase some of our architectural finds there, it just felt right. This past April, Mike and his wife Gretchen opened for business. The Tanner House is a vintage market located in an early 1900’s house that sits on the strip in Nolensville’s historical downtown shopping distract. Visit The Tanner House and you will find a unique collection of antiques, vintage goods, gift items and architectural finds.
Southern Accents has placed a unique collection of architectural antiques, including antique doors, mantels, bath fixtures, lighting, windows and more, at The Tanner House. Our hope is that expanding our physical presence will allow more people the opportunity to see the quality and beauty of the architectural pieces that we are salvaging. Pictures are great and words can be very descriptive, but there is no replacement for being able to physically see the grain and patina of aged wood or run your hand over the lines and curves of a piece of antique wrought iron. While this is a new venture for us… it is one that we hope will grow and expand over time.
We invite you to stop by The Tanner House and shop all of their beautiful inventory of antique and vintage goods, including architectural pieces from Southern Accents! Located about 15 minutes outside of Franklin, Tennessee, you can find them at 7307 Nolensville Road. They are open Monday through Saturday from 10 am till 6 pm. You can reach them by phone at 615-776-7307. When you stop by, don’t forget to tell them that Southern Accents sent you their way!
