When I was younger, my Mom would come to town and take me to the shops in Franklin. I would always manage to fanagle a purchase of Thistle Farms lotions – one for me, and one for Mom. It warmed my soul to know this product was produced by, and supported the lives of, women who had previously worked the streets, and now are on the path of recovery. It made me proud to know I always picked this locally made product over its competitors. I’ve since married, and had a child of my own, and now I regale my Mother-In-Law (and myself!) with their candles and lavender sachets – so the tradition lives on.
So it was with great interest that I’ve watched the creation of what looked like a a retail storefront for Thistle Farms on a stretch of new and growing shops on Charlotte Avenue, here in Nashville.
The other day, I had to come in, to assuage my curiosity.
It turns out that not only does this Thistle Farms outlet have a shop that carries its full line of products; but also, it is the organization’s headquarters, meditation center and packing and shipping facility. Above you can see the lobby, with the meditation room behind it, and beyond that, the entry to a state-of-the-art packing facility.
Anyone is welcome to come in and visit, sign in as a guest, take a tour, and find out more about this powerful organization, which enables women a new life through the power of love, nurturing and community.
Here’s the shop! Oh, goody goody!!!!! One for you, and…..
