A Little “Howl-oween” Fun!

IMG_8689

If there’s anything cuter/funnier than a dog in a Halloween costume…well, we just don’t know what it is! Halloween is such a great holiday–lots of candy, no stress–that we thought we’d celebrate here at All Dog Nashville with a dog costume photo contest. Simply visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/alldognashville/ and send us a message containing a photo of your dog all dressed up in their Halloween costume…and you can win a $25 gift certificate to All Dog Nashville! Winner will be announced on 10/30, and we will feature your dog’s photo on our Facebook page.

While we don’t sell dog costumes at All Dog Nashville (we’re all about dog owners!), there are a ton of great ideas out there! This dog has the perfect look for his Chewbacca costume, right?

IMG_8687

This Frenchie/harp seal has the right idea! (His expression makes the costume…)

IMG_8685

This one is too funny…and extra points for re-purposing a cone!

IMG_8684

We know our customers will come up with some truly creative ideas! The deadline for photo submission is Sunday Oct. 29–just message us at www.facebook.com/alldognashville/ and the winner will be announced on Monday, Oct. 30th.

We’re open this Tues.-Weds., Oct. 17-18 from 10-5 and Thurs. Oct. 19-Sat., Oct. 21 from 8-5pm…come see us!

My best,

Michael Taylor & Co.

 

We’ve Got Stationary in Store at All Dog Nashville!

IMG_8615

Isn’t it wonderful when you open the mailbox and instead of the usual bills, circulars, advertising mailers and catalogs, you receive a handwritten card from a friend? We just love good, old-fashioned “snail mail”, and think that a sweet card never goes out of style. Michael Taylor is always one to send a thoughtful, handwritten note (and he has very nice penmanship!) so when he put together the inventory for All Dog Nashville, unique, dog-themed cards were definitely a big priority.

IMG_8414

We’ve got lots of fantastic cards to send to family and friends…for every occasion, or just for fun!IMG_8412

Love the artwork…this one has a Nashville theme!

IMG_8411 (1)

For the “drama queen” in your life…we all have one (or a few!).

IMG_8413 (1)

Celebrate the achievements of family and friends with our cute “Top Dog” card…

IMG_8406 (1)

And if you love to write, our sweet pet journals are a great place to jot down funny stories and memories about your furry friends.

We’ve got so much in store at All Dog Nashville…this week we’re open from 9:30-5:30 Tues. 10/10-Fri., 10/13 and surprise hours on Saturday (we’ll update on Facebook later in the week!).  Bring your dog and shop with us…our retail gallery of fun antiques, artwork and deals, Michael Taylor At Home, is also open, so it’s a two-for-one shopping experience at 478 Allied Dr., 37211. See you soon!

My best,

Michael Taylor & Company

Fall Fun at All Dog Nashville!

IMG_8567

We’re so glad that fall is finally here…we had a great summer (hope you did, too!) but we love the slightly cooler temps and opportunities for long walks with our canine best buddies! We also love to incorporate hints of autumn into our decor, and of course, we can’t resist a dog theme here at All Dog Nashville! IMG_8426 (1)

Isn’t this trick-or-treater pup too cute? He’d look great on a hall table or holding a few treats for special guests.

IMG_8425 (1)

Or “treat” yourself to this sassy Yorkie pup…just $21! “Howl-oween” will be here before you know it…

IMG_8395

Our “South” candle line is a beautiful fall accent…handmade soy candles from Birmingham, AL, which are beautifully packaged for gift-giving with pine cones or cotton bolls and twine. The perfect fall hostess gift!

IMG_8424 (1)

Having a “ruff” day? These sassy napkins will say it for ya, and the fall color is just perfect!

We’re open Tuesday-Saturday, 10-5 this week…and our antique/vintage gallery, Michael Taylor At Home, will be open as well with lots of new-to-us inventory, so grab a leash, bring your pup and come shopping at 478 Allied Dr., 37211.

See you soon!

It’s (almost) Fall, y’all! Declutter AND Get Great Deals with Michael Taylor!

IMG_8159

We hate to see summer come to an end, but now that the kids are back in school, we have to admit that fall is just around the corner! And for us at the Michael Taylor Company, fall means two things: de-cluttering and deals.

First off…de-cluttering. Now that summer is winding down, we’re looking forward to holiday gatherings and events. This is a great time of the year to take a hard look at your home and clean out those areas where “too much stuff” seems to gather–garages, attics, storage units, etc.  If that job seems really daunting, we’re here to help! We specialize in downsizing sales that will help you liquidate your unused items for cash…and maybe free up a parking space in your garage before the winter weather arrives? We can even pack and move your items to our warehouse for an off-site sale, if holding a sale on your property isn’t the best option for you. We’ve got a few off-site sales coming up at Michael Taylor At Home in the next week, so drop by and see what we’re doing for our customers looking to de-clutter and downsize…we can do the same for you! Feel free to check out our website or call our office at 615-545-2867 for more info or to book a sale.

IMG_5904

And secondly…deals! We’ve got fabulous deals on everything you need for fall. Look to our sales for flat-screen TVs–it’s time to upgrade before football season gets into gear, right? We’ve got dining room sets galore to refresh your dining room before you host Thanksgiving dinner or your annual Christmas potluck.  The best deals in town on holiday decor can be found at our estate and moving sales, and we’ve always got lots of lawn and garden gear in our sales to get your yard into shape this fall.

Need a table for your family gatherings? We've got them! Come see our sales OR our selection at Michael Taylor At Home!

We have a fabulous sale in Brentwood this week, and look for Michael Taylor At Home to re-open next week with a NEW-to-us selection of merchandise that we know you’re going to love!

Lots of exciting things are in the works, including a themed store-within-a-store concept at Michael Taylor At Home that we think will be a hit with many of our shoppers…we aren’t quite ready to announce it just yet but here’s just a TINY hint!

Michael's store-within-a-store is going to be PAWSOME!
