Acorn in Louisville
The charm of local business has become a staple in the Louisville social scene. Supporting our community and finding new, intriguing places to shop has become a sort of mini adventure for many Louisville patrons, especially those of us who live in the Highlands. We want the comfort of meaningful interactions among neighbors and the local staff, as well as the authenticity of handmade, crafted items. The best of those items are the ones that seem to draw inspiration from the past, that remind us of childhood, or the stories our parents have lovingly shared with us about their own lives.
There is a store on Bardstown Road that not only fuels the local economy, but sports that wonderful vintage atmosphere we so desperately seek. Acorn is a neat little shop with a bit of everything, sure to satisfy the need of a broad range of customers. Reviews on popular sites like Yelp carry only positive feedback, with many customers impressed by not only the variety of items and their pricing, but also with the amazing customer service. Acorn also tends to stay open a little longer than some of the other shops of Bardstown, allowing you to take a little more browsing time instead of rushing to the counter with your purchases.
You can find almost anything in this unique spot, which resembles a small, well maintained home rather than a business. It’s a true departure from the cold and indifferent atmosphere of a big chain store. Brightly colored scarves and clutches can be found along the shelves, and stunning earrings of every style imaginable wait for the fashion adventurer. Vintage T-shirts are in no short supply, and one-of-a-kind handbags can be found here, too. Acorn also has a selection of seemingly random but well chosen items that make your browsing experience even more interesting, from dancing shoes to antique luggage!
If you want to liven up your shopping experience, and get a great deal at the same time, then the Acorn will not disappoint. It’s one of the most entertaining ways to support Louisville’s local businesses while saving a few bucks, and it’s right in the heart of the Highlands, where you’re sure to find even more shops to suit your specific needs. Take a day off, head over to Bardstown, and get lost in your new favorite store, Acorn!
