You guys seem to really like the posts about My Favorite Junk Shop and the Nashville Flea Market. I know I get lots of email wanting to know the location of “that cool junk shop”.
Here’s a nice big picture with the name of the shop and the phone no. What more could you ask for.
I don’t remember how I stumbled upon Butler’s Antiques and I don’t really know how long I’ve been making the trip to Hopkinsville just to look at junk. That’s where the shop is…… Hopkinsville, Kentucky…. a 45-50 minute drive from my home.
My Favorite Junk Shop
updated with new info September 20, 2016..
Where you can find my favorite shop…..Butler’s Antiques, 17th and Walnut Street, Hopkinsville KY 42240, phone no. (270)885-1521
Butlers is about 40 minutes from my home in the Clarksville area. From downtown Nashville the drive is about 1½ hours Store hours are Monday- Saturday, 9-5 or 6 depending on daylight hours and how busy the shop is. The shop is closed every 4th weekend from Thursday-Sunday. Butler’s Antiques sets up at the Nashville Flea Market on these weekends and no one is at the shop. At the flea market they are located outside in the walkway in front of the milk barn and down from the café. Just ask any vendor and they can probably tell you how to find them. Hope this info helps. Don’t buy all the good stuff!
Mr. Raymond Butler is the shop owner and he gets help from his sisters running the shop on different days. The shop is open Monday-Saturday 9-5, flexible closing hours depending on the season. He’s not open on the fourth weekend of the month from Thursday- Saturday because he loads up and sets up shop at the Nashville Flea Market. His booth is my first stop at the flea market.
This is not a paid advertisement!!! You guys are interested and I thought it was time to share. And now…as I do after every trip…..here’s the pics….
I came home with this beauty. Her legs are in really bad shape and she’s very rickety but for the price I couldn’t leave her there. No, I’m not telling you the price. I can’t divulge (big word for me, thank God for spell check) everything.
I meant to get the yardsticks and forgot about them. I’ve seen a lot of cool projects lately using these.
Poor little girl, her flower pot is broken. She’s still a beauty and somehow I left without her too. I meant to bring her home and got sidetracked. That happens a lot! Well, that’s the info on My Favorite Junk Shop.
Thanks for stopping by,
