Furniture, Music and a Road Trip (Or the Perfect Weekend)

13 Apr

Happy Friday! What are your plans for the weekend?

I’m headed down to Tupelo, Mississippi.

Get excited, people!

No? Okay, let me tell you why this is exciting news.

1.  I’m going to see the Avett Brothers play. I could stop there and this would be a great weekend. But wait…there’s more!

2.  Tupelo is known as “The Upholstered Furniture Capital of the World.” Given I literally had a dream about the perfect upholstered couch last night (very true), this is extremely exciting.

3.  Tupelo’s Antiques Trail boasts more than 60 homegrown antique stores. Y’all. If there’s one thing the South knows how to do right (besides ridiculously fattening food, music and front porches), it’s antique stores. Oh, the treasures.

This is the only "shop" photo I could find and it looks to be from about 1987. You get the idea. Souce: Tupelo.net

4.  Tupelo is the birthplace of Elvis Presley, so kitschy Elvis memorabilia (and groovy snapshots like the one above) abound.

Cute boys with guitars, upholstered furniture, antiques, Elvis and a mini road trip?

Kind of the perfect storm of a weekend, if you ask me.

Have a happy weekend!

    Have fun! I’ve only driven through Tupelo in the wee hours of the morning, and had no idea about the antique stores! Hope Scott and Seth sing directly to you and Amanda:)
