If you’re looking for a gift for your mom – or looking for a gift your partner can get YOU this Mother’s Day, check out your local shops. Everyone is hurting in this weird season, so I’m attempting to spend our money in thoughtful ways that support our neighbors and friends.
This list was inspired by the Erica Hester and the rest of the volunteer board of my local MOMS club. We have everything made, sold, or managed by East Nash moms – custom jewelry, quality time with the kids, quality time AWAY from the kids, handmade books, beautiful candles, locally raised plants and produce, watercolor house renderings, a way to support a local mama-to-be, and more. Note: I get no kickback from your shopping and most of these shops are new to me too!
Here are a collection of local moms and their businesses based in East Nashville:
From Brittany: Sense the welcoming rustic vibe in this private comfortable apartment, thanks to everything from local wall art to farmhouse chic & vintage decor. Compete outside on the bocce ball court & enjoy the fire pit! Book here.
From Katie: I make handbound journals, photo albums, and sketchbooks. I have more items available than what’s currently listed in my shop, so if anyone is interested feel free to e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/linenlaidfelt
From Andi: I curate and sell travel-inspired textiles: luckycollective.com/shop. I have handmade Moroccan pillows, blankets, and floor cushions! More can be found here: instagram.com/shopluckycollective
From Crystal: Shout out to my sister in Murfreesboro! She sells very cute and affordable jewelry. http://Plunderdesign.com/heatherdseay From the site: Here at Plunder we have an abiding love for all things savvy and vintage. That’s how our company began!

If the kids need a gift for mom, sometimes a book says it best. They could get their favorite bedtime story or something they think mom would enjoy reading with them! Shop here at Lauren’s link.
From Rebecca: Architecture renderings and visualization. I also offer my services for watercolor house drawings.
From Malenia: Most of what I’ve done has been commission pieces. I have stones to choose from to make it more personal. At this time there are only 3 pieces finished and available. Shop her style and connect here.
From Jami: I sell money plants, aloe, and veggie and herb starts, previously at the East Nashville farmers market but now by porch pick up. Check out her current offerings here.
What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than to help a local friend adopt? Michelle shares: Kate is a local mama-to-be who is selling these great Mama shirts. 50% supports the Martha O’Bryan Center and the rest supports her adoption fundraiser. Check out her shirt collection here.
