One Man's Treasure

A Shopping DelightAmid the hustle and bustle of the thriving Hendersonville community, there is a hidden treasure. Once a consignment shop, now an eclectic boutique, One Man's Treasure offers a wide variety of unique items. Inside, you can find anything from candles to quilts, iron works to aprons, and an array of object d'art. One of their best sellers is the Circle E Candle, which is incredibly long burning and comes in many wonderful aromas. Spring brings many new “finds” to the shop. Adorable note cards and desk sets, trendy jewelry and purses, and precious new items for baby make up just a sampling. This shabby chic spot carries a beautiful selection of vintage furniture and the Garden Room displays the latest in garden themed items and truly delightful botanicals.

One Man's Treasure has been in business for several years, but was acquired in December of 2006 by husband and wife, Geoffrey and Kristi Pace. They reside in Hendersonville with their twin boys, Cannon and Conner.

Kristi grew up in a retail environment as her family owned Whitman's Bakery for over fifty years. She has been providing friendly customer service since she was a little girl, bagging cookies and counting out change. Now she spends her days providing an enjoyable and unique shopping experience for her customers.

One Man's Treasure is located in the heart of Hendersonville at 157 Old Shackle Island Road and can be reached at 615-264-1221. The shop is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Bullfrogs and Butterflies

“What do I put my kids in? How do I get my sister to move to Nashville ? And, what will my mom and I do when the kids are in school?” With those questions in mind, Stephanie Dickinson, her mother Sandra Loewen, and sister Tiffany Breckenridge made their dream of owning their own shop a reality, and Bullfrogs and Butterflies was born.

Sandra spent the first 27 years of her married life running a household of 4 daughters. Her specialties as a mom included taxi service, time management tactics, chef extraordinaire, child psychologist, and best friend. For the past 10 years, she has managed medical practices.

Stephanie began her career in advertising. After becoming disillusioned with corporate America (and more importantly, when her husband finished school), she traded in her briefcase for a diaper bag. Her two children, Brett and Taylor are her little Bullfrog and Butterfly.

Tiffany started her career with the Levi's corporation. She then moved to Southern California as a merchandiser for Quiksilver and Etnies. She's an avid surfer, runner, professional shopper, and playmate to Stephanie's two kids, who have lovingly named her “Dodo.”

So the story goes, Tiffany traded in her surfboard for cowboy boots, Sandi got back on Quicken, and Stephanie's husband has been putting the kids to bed.

Bullfrogs and Butterflies specializes in children's clothing from European and American designers. The store also features baby gifts, designer accessories, and fashionable diaper bags. Drop in for a visit at 760 E. Main Street, Suite 1 in Hendersonville ; call them at (615)-264-8440, or see them online at
