The Makers Market, located in The Factory at Franklin, is growing with new retailers. Urban Thrifter, an offshoot of the popular City Farmhouse store, recently opened. Urban Thrifter is a curated thrift store with a mix of vintage, antiques and consignment items.
A soft opening is underway where you can shop through the holidays. In January, they plan to add vintage clothing items. Hours of operation are Tuesday – Saturday 11 a – 4 p. The Factory is located at 230 Franklin Rd.
Owners Kim and David Leggett refer to Urban Thrifter as a “side hustle” of City Farmhouse. For those unfamiliar with City Farmhouse: City Farmhouse is a lifestyle brand that offers modern farmhouse style for urban and rural living. The brand has become known for its Pop-Up fairs and antique shows. The Leggets have been “pickers” for more than 20 years, and their trained eye and vivacious personalities have earned them national acclaim. They opened a store in The Factory back in 2015 after having a storefront in downtown Franklin for six years. In 2017, City Farmhouse transformed their retail store into an event space and later back to a retail space for the launch of their book City Farmhouse Style.
City Farmhouse will continue to offer authentic antiques and vintage home furnishings at major antique shows around the country, and at popup shops in Franklin. Their 2020 schedule will be posted on the website soon. Currently, City Farmhouse is accepting consignment items, 50 percent of the proceeds will be donated to a local charity.
