backyard bazaar



from 12:00 pm – 6:00pm this saturday and sunday at the gas station. 2601 12th Avenue South.


our friends from bang candy and barista parlor (with iced turkish coffee) will be there all weekend and the grilled cheeserie will be with us on Sunday.


in-store only; NO email or phone sales. first come, first serve.


a few insider tips we’ve learned over the years for these sorts of events :


#1 the “cash only” line is generally faster – bring cash if you’re in a hurry.


#2 avoid huge lines for the dressing rooms – gals, you can avoid ‘em by wearing tights, bike shorts, a dress or anything you can throw jeans on top of. and for the boys? shorts… long johns… you’ll think of something!


#3 the jeans only stay so organized for so long – so boys, if you look down and the jean you are trying on has a zipper, you’re wearing lady pants.


#4 this is marathon weekend and Saturday traffic tends to get a bit rough in certain parts of town. might we suggest avoiding the race course , corresponding road closures AND driving through downtown or the general lp field area.

record store day

a11bd356Every day we are proud to call Nashville home. On a day like Record Store Day, we are even prouder. There’s so much going on at the hometown record stores that it is hard to know where to begin. Fond Object, Grimey’s, and The Groove have killer shows and dj sets going down all day on Saturday and Third Man Records is pulling off what they are calling “The World’s Fastest Released Record”. Jack White will be playing live in the morning and within a matter of hours and with the help of United Records Pressing, the record will be printed and returned to sell in the shop that afternoon. See links below to all the happenings.

save supper + song

unnamed-4dear friends.


no one ever tells you that when you dream to become creators of a brand and shop keepers that you might need to sharpen your pencil on government and bureaucracy!


would love a bit of your time to catch you up to speed on a subject that is very near and dear to us: saving supper + song.


our last correspondence to you about supper + song was in september of 2012. writing to you that september night seems like yesterday in one regard, but in another, it feels like it has been 100 years.

Brooklyn Brewery is hosting a week of culinary and cultural shindigs (Mar. 1 – 8), the first of which, Dinner on the Farm, will be held this Sunday, March 2, at 3:30, inside the Green Door Gourmet barn at Hidden Valley Farm. Chef Andrew Gerson (Brooklyn Brewery) and Chef Brandon Frohne (Mason’s at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, Forage South) are cooking up a family-style feast from farm-raised produce, paired with Brooklyn beer.


Dinner on the Farm works to connect people back to the land and to the farmers and artisans who are making our communities a better place to live. And turns out that it’s a fun, laidback late-afternoon barn party.

spotify visit + playlist


Last week, Spotify’s worldwide team visited Nashville for their company retreat. They had a amazing crash course in all things Nashville and part of their trip was spent with us for a night of shopping, food and music. We at i+w are so thrilled with their service as it allows us to share the music that is on our minds with our family, friends and customers so it was such an honor to host them and get to know them personally and more of what the service is about and where it is headed. And it is always so lovely getting to share a bit of what we are about as a brand and as a city.
