Best Gift Shop

For me, heaven would be a city full of museum gift shops. But here on earth, I’ve found some good ones too. After touring the Tennessee State Museum’s expansive galleries, I recommend you poke around its excellent gift shop. The museum’s store stocks its shelves with apparel, decor, books and toys that relate to our state’s history and culture. It’s a great place to pick up gifts — books featuring diverse subjects and road bingo games are great for the little ones, and a Thistle Farms candle or a print by local artist Joanna Dee would delight most any mom. The museum team went all out for this year’s exhibition Ratified! Tennessee Women and the Right to Vote, with a collection of custom-made T-shirts, enamel pins, posters and more that celebrate the 19th Amendment. ERICA CICCARONE
