Garden & Gun: The Southern Agenda (October 2015)

Kim Leggett has a keen eye for a particular sort of trash turned treasure that draws droves of shoppers to her chic store, City Farmhouse, in Franklin, where she sells everything from twelve-foot farm tables to repurposed lighting to antique spittoons and restored bicycles. Over the past two years, Leggett’s annual City Farmhouse Pop-up Fairs have attracted thousands of eager pickers to her neck of the Tennessee woods, in search of stylishly worn pieces similar to the ones she finds for private clients such as Sheryl Crow and Ralph Lauren. This year, she’s added fall and winter dates to follow her successful spring one. The upcoming autumn show (October 16–17) will take place on the grounds of the 17,000-square-foot mansion of the late music publisher Buddy Killen in nearby Leiper’s Fork. Vendors from almost twenty states will fill the spacious property with a range of decorative pieces for home and garden, as well as handmade jewelry and clothing. Come with plenty of spare time—and a pickup truck.—
