Shelbyville may officially be the Saddlehorse Capital of the World, but unofficially it is one of the commonwealth’s antique centers. Wakefield Scearce Gallery is known to serious collectors around the world, especially for its fine English antiques and silver.

Other treasures await your pleasure, including Vintique (vintage collectibles and local handicrafts); At Home on Main (affordable home décor) and Paisley Pig Antiques Mall, whose merchandise spans the Colonial era to Post World War II years.

As for the dining scene — while the venerable Old Stone Inn in nearby Simpsonville is no more, you can always book a table at the Bell House Restaurant or the Science Hill Inn for authentic southern fare.
