Fall 2008
Best Sellers in Nashville, TN By Kami Rice


What began as a vintage clothing store over 20 years ago has morphed into a shop full of something for just about anyone on customers’ shopping lists. Many of Pangaea’s first items were from Honduras and Guatemala, but owner Sandra Shelton gradually started mixing in new items, like linens, books, and handbags. Now the store has a Mexican feel courtesy of its primary colors and its Mexican folk art and mirrors. But you’ll also find products from Asia and India and from the southwestern U.S.

Shelton says running Pangaea is approximately her fifth career, and she enjoys everything about it: shopping, keeping the books, and arranging the store.
