Trazo Meadery

Trazo Meadery

Who else gets as excited for #featurefriday as we do?! This month we want to tell you guys about Tennessee’s first meadery located right here in Clarksville, Trazo Meadery. Travis Powell and his family opened the tasting room in May of last year, but they have been in business since 2016. All of their meads are produced on their family farm in Adams, TN.
The origins of the meadery started when Travis began his beekeeping journey at nine. He wanted to create something out of the bee’s byproduct, honey. Travis was intrigued by mead’s long history and after brainstorming with his dad and business partner, they began work on perfecting a mead recipe.
Trazo Meadery specializes in “show mead” which is made from three simple ingredients, honey, water, and yeast. They source their honey from around the world, however, the yeast they use is a decades-old strain passed down from Travis’s grandma.
On their menu, you can find flight boards allowing you to sample five of their most popular meads and charcuterie boards with meats from Italy and cheeses from Italy, Wisconsin, and Ireland. They also just started selling Trazo Mead growlers. Stop by and enjoy a great atmosphere and a glass of mead or cider. They’re open Fridays from 3pm to 11pm, Saturdays from 11am to 11pm, and Sundays from 11am to 5pm. Don’t forget to follow them to see what they’re up to!
Miss Lucille’s Marketplace

Miss Lucille’s Marketplace

A new month means a new #featurefriday! We love giving you guys a more in-depth look at some local businesses so much, that we decided to do TWO a month. The first feature of May will be Miss Lucille’s Marketplace. I’m sure you’ve heard of Miss Lucille’s, but have you checked them out? If not, you should!! They have so much to offer.
Trent Knott was driving down Madison Street one day and saw an empty warehouse. He had always been a picker and decided that he would take that and create something Clarksville needed on this side of town. Nine years later and Miss Lucille’s is still rocking it.
Their marketplace has over 200 boutiques with a wide range of styles to appease everyone. They have a furniture design studio where you can create a one-of-a-kind piece. If you get hungry while browsing their many booths, you can stop into their very own café and enjoy some delicious food or grab some coffee and keep on browsing!
Miss Lucille’s hosts afterhours and in-house events. The Belle Hollow is tucked within Miss Lucille’s and is a great space for weddings, corporate or intimate events. For holidays they have brunch events with Santa, the Easter Bunny and for Mother’s Day.
Stop by and see what they have to offer. You’ll surely find something to take home!

Courtney Berlyak opened Sango Village Florist in 2001. She sold it to family friends, Justin Grant and his sister Brittany Holt when she moved to Texas in 2019. Brittany had experience working with Courtney on weddings, so taking it over to continue her work was a no brainer.
Their main business is through everyday arrangements, but they also do a lot of funeral and sympathy work, weddings, and arrangements for local fundraising events. Need a single or large-scale arrangement? They are the place to go!
For Mother’s Day their vase arrangements are the most popular, but they also carry a large selection of blooming plants that are perfect for those mom’s out there that perfer a longer lasting arrangement.

The Hardwood Grove

The Hardwood Grove

It’s #featurefriday time! We just LOVE showcasing our local businesses, Clarksville just wouldn’t be the same without them! This month, we’re talking about The Hardwood Grove, they are veteran owned and have some exciting projects coming up that we know ya’ll will love!
Danny Bell moved to Clarksville in 2006 and brought his years of woodworking experience with him. He decided to share that experience with the Clarksville community and opened The Hardwood Grove in 2019. They can really make anything you need, plaques, cutting boards, custom kitchens, islands, desks, entertainment centers and river tables that feature their own deep pour epoxy. They have a huge variety of woods, which they source from the Tennessee and Kentucky areas. Right now, they’re having a huge lumber sell. Make sure to check that out!
For the river tables, Danny originally used a Canadian based brand of epoxy, but when he opened The Hardwood Grove, he wanted to use a US based brand. He couldn’t find exactly what he was looking for, so he created his own, making it the first Tennessee veteran owned epoxy brand. It combines all the best qualities that Danny was looking for in an epoxy. They are hoping to launch it nationally. Another cool project they will be working on is The Vine on Franklin. The Hardwood Grove will be building the bar, furniture and inside fixtures. You’ll have to go see all their hard work when it opens!
Make sure to think of The Hardwood Grove for all your future woodworking needs. Thanks for serving our country and community Danny!
You can visit their store at 2535 Madison Street, but starting May 1st, they’ll have a set up at Scriptures & Sawdust!
She Gifts of Life, LLC

She Gifts of Life, LLC

Hi friends! It’s time for another Feature Friday. This month we’re talking about SHE Gifts of Life LLC

Have you heard of it? If not, you’ve been missing out!
SHE Gifts of Life is the first fair trade retail store in Clarksville. The concept came about when Syvella Robinson was working for a fair trade organization in Nashville. They did a lot of merchandising around Clarksville and Syvella realized that people here wanted something similar. She took a risk and opened her own fair trade store.
For those that don’t know, fair trade ensures that people in developing countries get a fair and living wage to help reduce poverty and provide ethical treatment of the workers. Another great thing about fair trade is most of the products are upcycled, reused, or repurposed. Nothing goes to waste. At SHE, seventy eight percent of their products are made from female artisans. They are actively advocating for women’s rights all around the world.
Syvella and SHE Gifts of Life are doing great things, not only for our community, but for the world. Syvella says “We are collectively trying to create the world that we want to see. Our job here is to help others and put people and the planet first.”
Jump on over to SHE Gifts of Life and check out their jewelry, home goods, games, accessories and more. They truly have something for everyone. Not only will you be supporting a local business, but also helping make the world just a little bit better. You can find SHE Gifts of Life at:2197 Madison St Ste 104 or buy online at:
