If you haven't been to Mt. Pleasant in a while, you are in for a treat and a great shopping day with all the new boutiques and stores that grace the main thoroughfare, aptly named Main St. With warm weather at long last, this is an ideal time to spend the day perusing the many new shops of Mt. Pleasant. Start your morning with a coffee at Buckhead Coffee and stop for lunch at the famous Mt. Pleasant Grille.
Today we are going to take a look at the new 1824 General Store and Breckenridge Baby Boutique.
After a complete restoration of the building, proprietors Angela Newman and her husband Matthew, moved from Nashville to Mt. Pleasant's historic downtown. Angela had long held a dream of having a vintage-style store that carries locally sourced products and gifts. Upon visiting Mt. Pleasant, she and her husband fell in love with it, not only opening her dream store in November of 2017 but also buying a home in town.
Located at 106 N. Main, the name of the store "1824" is derived from the year that Mt. Pleasant was incorporated as a city. It features a sundry of dry goods and gifts, with a specialty in products made in Tennessee, including beer, honey, skin products, gift items and even organic beef, chicken and pork from the Hampshire farm "Liberty Trace."
This boutique is all things baby and children - from clothing, books and toys to gifts and decor. Formerly an antique store, Breckenridge Baby opened exactly a year ago in a quaint historic building that dates back to 1824 and is on the historic registry.
The full-service shop is run by Kendra Nowlin and offers baby registry for expecting mothers and families. It is the perfect place to pick up a gift for mother and child.
