Alley Poet’s Pen: “Just Keep Sewing Girl!”

 

*One of an occasional series of profiles that Alley Poet likes to pen of local businesses and people who make Downtown Nashville unique…

Alley Poet's PenNashville, TN – They say that color and variety make a good neighborhood or city scape. Places where your eye has something stimulating to land on can invigorate a walk, or even change a person’s perspective. Most of you know I walk the Downtown Nashville city streets every day.

In spite of the bulldozing going on in Midtown and the subsequent “homogenizing” factor such overdevelopment brings, downtown (and I know, I know East Nashvillians, you’ve got a major indie factor!!) still seems to have its share of local flavor. One place that never disappoints is Karma Clothing on 3rd and Church.
