One of my good friends (and sometimes store employee) Elise over at http://www.pennyweightonline.com/ turned me onto the beautiful-ness (is that a word?) of the Peter Nappi Studion in Nashville.
She was going there for a photo shoot and I was just taken by how beautiful and inspirational the space was.
Take a look :)
And here is info the on bootmaker/leather genius.
"Located in a repurposed abattoir called the Neuhoff Meat Packing plant, our studio is something to be experienced. Built in 1906 and rediscovered by the McRedmond family, this incredible compound is six blocks from downtown Nashville and sits on a rock bluff overlooking the Cumberland River.
The Studio houses our office, leather crafting workshop, a stage and furniture from centuries past and countries afar. And, of course, our Boots, Bags and Other Dry Goods. Here you can shop from our stock, order custom designed bags or bespoke boots. "
