I didn’t have many things on my must see list, but there was one store that I just had to see in person: the Tribe Kelley Trading Post.
I was not leaving Nashville until I saw this place in person. Of course you can shop, browse, and buy almost all of their apparel online. Which I do, I just wanted to see it all in person. I wanted to learn more about sizing. I wanted to be able to feel the different fabrics. I wanted to see with my own eyes how this idea turned into an amazing business. Y’all, it did not disappoint. If you don't know much about Tribe Kelley, I encourage you to look it up. Their mission and the way they run their business.
We got there at 10:30 right when they opened. The second customer who walked in that morning was all the way from Wisconsin! She too has several pieces already but wanted to add to her collection. I looked at everything in that store. The jackets, the jeans, the sweatshirts, and the famous traveler bra. I think I tried about 10 items. I wanted to buy them all but had to narrow it down.
Here’s what I purchased:
Tribe Jacket in Green
Cruze Sweatpants in Army Tan
There’s a jacket I’m going to get, once it goes on sale. You can see a picture of it here. It’s incredibly soft and cozy inside yet edgy looking on the exterior. That will be my next Tribe Kelley purchase.
I have so many stores that I love, but there is just one that inspires me. Tribe Kelley.
