It’s hard to believe that it’s been a whole year since I was first introduced to the Taste of Brown County. While technically it has gone on for eight years now, I had never heard about it until last year when I helped do some writing both before and after the event for the CVB.
After getting my feet wet last year, I was excited to work on the Taste of Brown County and experience it again this year…this time from the inside as a CVB employee. While Brown County is home to many festivals throughout the year, the Taste is unlike any other.
When I heard there was a new store opening up in town that had both gyros and art, I wasn’t quite sure how the two would go together. Seems like a pretty unlikely combo but Steve Kemp, owner of Gyros Food & Art Studios, has got it all figured out.
An eclectic blend of food, jewelry, clothing, and art, Kemp’s store is definitely one-of-a-kind. Not to mention, he’s serving up the only gyro in Nashville! Just hearing about this place wasn’t enough; I had to go see it for myself.
For many years, Brown County has been known for its rich history and artistic roots stretching back to its origin as an art colony in the early 1900s. It’s one of the things that makes Brown County so special and it’s something that continues to this day!
Brown County’s art heritage can be seen all around. From traditional forms of art such as paintings and ceramics to more unconventional art like upcycled furniture and handcrafted home goods, art is alive and thriving in Brown County. Which is why Simply 4 You, a new shop in town, is a perfect fit!
Pottery, paintings, clothing, handcrafted furniture, jewelry, homemade fudge, decorative home goods, candles, artisan olive oils…no matter what you are looking for, chances are you can find it in the Village of Nashville. There is one thing, however, that for about 20 years, you haven’t been able to get…a high quality gun.
That’s no longer the case though as Buck Shot Sporting Goods opens its doors in the Village! Hunters and gun lovers rejoice…there’s a new business in town that’s got all your shooting needs covered.
