If you’ve not been to Clairrene’s Treasures in Mt. Juliet, you need to stop soon. When looking for a special piece for a client, this is always my first stop. Claireene has over 10,000 square feet of goodies, and her display is ever-changing. While the toys outside may be deceiving, the treasures inside will make you lose track of time.
Claireene has antiques, items from estate sales, and her own one-of-a-kind creations. If you can dream it, she can build it. She is building some shelves for a client of mine now. Take a look at these kitchen islands she has in shop:
I got to know Claireene Hale a couple of years ago when I stumbled upon her shop. I say stumbled, because like many, I had passed her shop almost daily without realizing what was inside. But Claireene’s has been there about 12 years. I stopped by because I noticed this sign:
Being married to a car man, I’m always on the lookout for someone who likes to do a little trading and Claireene and I traded chairs that day. After talking with her for a while, I found out her husband was in the car business as well, and in fact our husbands knew each other. Small world huh?
I love my chairs that I got that day, and have added many of her treasures to my collection over the years. I love seeing what she has new in store and what projects she is working on. Besides creating new pieces, she takes older pieces and makes them new again with a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware.
And there are accessories galore:
When my friends Bill and Phyllis over at The Chronicle of Mt. Juliet decided to run a “Best of the Best” contest in the paper this year, Claireene’s was named the Best Antique Store in Mt. Juliet! It wasn’t a surprise to me though- I’ve known that for quite a while!

Stop by next time you’re in Mt. Juliet and tell Claireene I sent ya! You’ll be glad you did.
