  • Business Plan

    Our gallery is located in a tourist destination. We represent Tennessee well. Our business serves to provide income for 50 local individuals. We are vital in our community. As our community rebounds from the Covid19 shutdown we want to continue to provide essential income to our artists and continue with the impact we have on the broader community. When out of state visitors come through our door telling us they look to support local art businesses our business comes up first on their Google search in Nashville. Due to our location at The Loveless Cafe we have met visitors from all over the world. We have shipped art all over the country. Nothing gives us more pleasure than telling the stories of our artists and letting them know their work is traveling across the world.

  • Self Identified Competition

    We have been told repeatedly that there are no other retailers in our area that provide a selection that is totally and locally based. While other businesses include locally made products, ours is based only on residents from middle TN. We take pride in supporting our community. What makes us different is we don't feel a sense of competition with other businesses. We support our artists first and foremost. We are happy to make referrals to both artists and customers if we can't provide for their needs.
