Christmas in Bell Buckle, TN

Recently I visited my friend Patti owner of Pinecone Hill Antiques in Bell Buckle, TN. Pinecone Hill features period antiques to cottage chic as well as accessories, homemade soaps, candles, linens, and wonderful locally made potpourri. A visit is not only a eye treat, but smells delicious too. Hope you enjoy this little photo tour, but if you decide to visit, you must plan a lunch at the renowned Bell Buckle Cafe, just two doors down. Patti would love it if you visit; she is a lovely lady, a wonderful friend, and knows how to treat you with southern hospitality. If you are traveling this Christmas, BB is only a 15 to 20 min. drive from Interstate 24 at Murfreesboro, TN. Call Patti for hours and directions, 931-389-9002. This weekend Dec 6 & 7 is Christmas in Bell Buckle with period dressed carolers going shop to shop, food, shop specials and all kinds of fun for the family. Go by to see Patti and tell her Carrell sent you!
