The City Farmhouse Pop Up Show, a compilation of vintage clothing, antique goods and local, artisanal products, is returning for its second annual event from noon until 5 p.m. on October 17-18, at the late Buddy Killen’s estate, located at 3090 Old Hillsboro Road in Franklin.
This year, the design show will offer a “lost-in-time” garden and funky, fantasy exhibition within the mansion. The “Folk and Folly,” southern-gothic, Alice in Wonderland-inspired exhibition will contain various artists’ works throughout seven different rooms in the abandoned home, reflecting the pop up show’s aesthetic.
Obscure light fixtures, French country antiques, repurposed jewelry, industrial interiors will all be present and in abundance at the pop up show, ensuring each customer will find something unique and individualistic to suite their specific tastes.
If that’s not enough, famed Swedish interior designer Nina Hartman and style guru Matthew Meade are featured special guests and will be in attendance for solicited advice, book signings and how-to’s. There will also be a catered, private luncheon available to patrons featuring celebrity guests, food trucks on-site and a shop full of local, live music.
Created by City Farmhouse shop owners Dave and Kim Leggett, the Pop Up Show garnered high traffic and success last year, thanks to the couple’s burgeoning success in the antique realm.
The location for the event was a no-brainer, due to the mansion’s unique Tennessee history. The once inhabited, lively, Killen mansion, known for hosting music legends from the likes of Dolly Parton and George Jones, will serve as the perfect backdrop for the artists visual center pieces.
General admission pricing for the “junk-de-luxe” event ranges from $10 per day or $15 for the weekend. Admission includes entrance to the show, live performances and demonstrations.
