Downtown Nashville, IN shops

Downtown Nashville is an eclectic, artsy community with a wide variety of shops. One thing we didn't account for however, are the hours the shops are actually open. Most everything we came across opened anywhere between 10am and noon and closed at 5:00. For such a touristy town it doesn't seem that the hours cater to the clientele. We envisioned walking around in the early evening, getting dinner and perusing the shops. Luckily we found out that morning as we were looking for a coffee shop that was actually open (found one that opened at 9am) about shop times.

Lovely place to visit and I highly recommend it, but want others to be informed as they are making plans.

The best time to visit Nashville, IN is on the weekend. Many shops might be more part-time or side business ventures, if not outright money loosing hobbies for some folks. We were there about three or so weekends ago and things were hopping. We just grabbed a bite to eat in town and then went to the park but there were plenty of people around. This area isn't popular enough to draw the crowds M-F. If you did visit on a weekend then this would be sad news because I would see this as a sign of things not going well for area or maybe tourist type getaway towns in general.

We visited Nashville recently and were disappointed at the short business hours of the shops and restaurants.

Keep in mind that many of the shops are run by the artisans who make the items for sale in the shop.

You have to make it if you're going to sell it which means the time they're in the shop selling is time taken away from production - can't do both at the same time!!!!!!!!!

Call the VB across from the Courthouse for details on shop hours - BTW the VB doesn't have public restrooms, can you believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
