WOW ...Retro Heaven on Earth !!!.
Oh my God! If you haven't been to this place, you have to go NOW!
Being from California where there are more vintage and mid century stores, I was dissapointed in Nashville until I found this awesome store on 8th avenue.
I found a plethora of 50's and 60's stuff for my new home in music city at GIVE AWAY prices, so many funky treasures there! I was in a euphoric state of sheer bliss. As a matter of fact it is now my favorite place to shop!
The girl working there was great , just super helpful above and beyond what you would expect, and answered many questions I had about Nashville, which was so nice because she didn't even know me!
She said they get new merchandise daily, so I am making it a point to stop in at least once a week'''
I LOVE this super groovy place....check it out, you will be so glad you did!
I love the merchandise - great selection, but the few times I'ver been in there I've found the staff to be unfriendly and made to feel like answering my questions was a bother. Not so sure I'll be going back anytime soon.
This retro-modern utopia is filled to the brim with whimsical relics from the '50s and '60s.. In Short Located in the heart of the antique district, Pre to Post Modern's offers more than gilt-edged antiques. Smooth occasional tables pepper the showroom. Classic diamond chairs, kitchen table sets complete with vinyl chairs, animal-print rugs and kitschy lamps serve as backdrops for the vast collection of curios: placemats, picture frames, LPs and 45s from Joan Jett to Al Jolson, cigarette cases, ashtrays, salt and pepper shakers shaped like TVs and Howdy Doody lunch pails.
Betty Page Says ....
I was Karen Hollywood's (store owner) customer at her first vintage booth in a thrift store, then because of her great merchandise followed her to her first store, Hollywood Boutique, then to P2PM. She finds the good stuff and sells it at prices you can afford...not because she doesn't know the value (she does), but because she still believes in giving people a deal. If you love Retro, this is the store for you. Betty Page a/k/a R.
