Make a Beeline to Clarksville and
Miss Lucille’s Marketplace, Cafe & Event Center

Miss Lucille’s is an eclectic 54,000 square foot antiques marketplace in Clarksville, Tenn. The building, once a Clarksville landmark as the Acme Boot Distribution Center, now has new life as customers cruise through aisles of treasures and indulge in some of Clarksville’s finest cuisine.

When the antique mall first opened in 2012 with only 75 vendors, owners Dana and Trent Knott knew that customer experience, atmosphere, and family traditions would be the main components in bringing the business to life.

With the completion of the antique mall in 2013, the idea for the café addition came about as owner, Trent Knott, would greet customers in the main lobby only to receive the feedback time and time again that guests were hungry and in need of nourishment as they forged through the aisles of treasures.

Later that year, the owners gave into the requests of valued customers and the idea for the café was brought to life. Much like in the antique mall, atmosphere was to be a key component in the café’s appeal. With family tradition in mind, Dana and Trent turned to their daughter Luci Knott-Armitstead for the creative touch that would set Miss Lucille’s Café apart. Luci had just graduated from Belmont University with her degree in Entrepreneurship and was ready for the challenge. It was her innovative style that orchestrated the rustic and warm atmosphere of the café and The Belle Hollow event venue.

Only after teaming with Ross Wilson, hometown chef known for his sophistication and flair, was Miss Lucille’s ready to provide customers with the next level of the customer experience.

Café menu favorites are all in-house made and include: a signature Strawberry-Basil Lemonade, The Picky Eunice Lettuce Wraps, Sadie Mae’s Grilled Cheese, Willie’s Brisket Sliders, and southern-style bread pudding.

Miss Lucille’s Café has counter service and is a great spot to bring family and friends. The dining room features farm tables in which all customers dine southern-style, as family.

The Belle Hollow is a versatile event space tucked within Miss Lucille’s Marketplace. The space features exposed brick, lofty trusses, and elegant chandeliers. These features truly highlight the overflowing and existing character. The event space has an outside entrance as well as rentable amenities that can be reserved for weekday luncheons for 30-150 guests. The Belle Hollow event venue can also be transformed for your perfect wedding, banquet, holiday party, or southern event.

The antique mall, café, and event center is one complete single level handicap accessible facility. The antique mall offers wide aisles, easy navigation, and a friendly face to greet you at every turn.

Miss Lucille’s is the ultimate shopping experience, and whether you are on a mission to furnish or redesign your home or are on an outing with the girls, Miss Lucille’s is the destination for you.

Miss Lucille’s has a wide variety of vendors to discover. From fine antiques and vintage treasures, to shabby chic, painted furniture, southern décor, skilled craftsmen, western wares, man-collectibles, rust, primitives, boutiques, and more. Miss Lucille’s Marketplace has a little something for everyone.
