'Pop-Up' Concept

On Depot Street

Unites Well-Known

Local Vendors



Antique collectors and other shoppers looking for one-of-a-kind vintage Americana, heirloom, handcrafted furniture, and repurposed industrial pieces will soon have a new shop to visit -- but they won't have long to do so.

P. Bradford and Friends will open this Friday, at 130 West Depot St. -- a familiar downtown Greeneville structure known as the George R. Lane building.

Pat Bradford, a well-known proprietor among Greeneville's antique collectors, is opening the "pop-up retail store" with a little help from her friends.

Vendors, in addition to Bradford, are Sally Brown, Janice Brown, John Brown, Roger Brown, Charles Holland, Helen Holland, Benita Arnett, and Lonnie Arnett.

All of the vendors have been involved in antiques "in one way or another" for a number of years, Bradford said, adding that they have been working hard to set up the space for shoppers.

"It's a labor of love," she said.

Customers are welcome to the store when it opens for the first time at 10 a.m. on Friday.


The pop-up retail store concept is a new one for Greeneville.

Bradford says "pop-ups" are a phenomenon more common in metropolitan areas. Stores "pop-up," sell their merchandise, and then close again, as opposed to remaining open indefinitely.

"We are definitely on a time schedule and will be gone Dec. 1," Bradford said.

Bradford said she and the other vendors involved are not currently able to be available to work in a store on a daily, full-time basis. But by combining their efforts, she said, they are able to open the pop-up for the remaining months of this year.

Store hours are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The store will not be open on Sunday.


Collectors, shoppers, and browsers will have two floors of antiques, heirlooms, handcrafted furniture and more to look through.

There will be American and English antiques, pieces from life-long collections, architectural treasures, heirlooms, vintage and Americana items, handcrafted furniture and accessories, repurposed industrial pieces and much more for sale.

A number of interesting, one-of-a-kind pieces will be available also -- such as the original shoeshine stand from Greeneville's historic Brumley Hotel, now very extensively renovated as the General Morgan Inn.
