Nostalgia is the largest vintage store in Tennessee, spread across two locations with dozens of dealers under each roof. Wandering the aisles covers a century’s worth of time travel, from the 1880s to the 1980s, with a special emphasis on mid-century modern sofas, kitschy kitchenware, and Don the Beachcomber-style tiki gear. Also up for the scouting, depending on the day: vinyl and 8-tracks, manual typewriters, fur stoles, working traffic lights, and saloon-worthy cow skulls. All essential, of course.
