Mobile apps, mobile devices, mobile car detailing, and mobile pet groomers are popping up every day. You don’t even have to sit down in a restaurant anymore if you don’t want to, you can go to a local Food Truck park and take your pick of menu choices. So when we heard about Dixie Avenue, a mobile retail store, we were very intrigued.
Named after her beloved hometown street in Smyrna, Stacy Brown came up with the idea for a mobile store after she was driving items from her store in the Woodstock Market back and forth to some local fundraisers. She has been referred to as a “Cracker Barrel on Wheels,” and it suits her just fine.
Stacy also saw the growing popularity of the Atlanta Food Truck Park, as well as the trend toward mobile retail in cities like LA and Nashville and she jumped on the idea.
Dixie Avenue carries a large variety of items that are created by artisans in Southeast, and of course some local OTP brands too. Jewelry, home décor items and hand crafted food items are her focal point, and her best seller is Southern Culture Artisan Foods Original Bacon Rub, which is made in Decatur and was featured on Shark Tank.
And, like any good, southern boutique, she carries collegiate décor for the home. You never can have enough (UGA, Auburn, Florida — you fill in the blank) in your life.
You can visit Dixie Avenue on specific dates listed on her website. You can even invite her to your next office party, community gathering or fundraiser, and you get credits as the host!
I wish I still had little kids with school festivals, because I would love to have Dixie Avenue come to a Fall Festival!
Dixie Avenue is the first mobile store we have featured, so we hope this is good Scoop! Stop by at one of her next events, or invite her to your own. And tell her Scoop sent you!
