✨Walton’s family, we need your help! ✨ You all are always so supportive of us, we now need your help in supporting another wonderful family business.
Don Stockton, owner of The Toy Rack, has been selling his amazing wood toys at Franklin’s Main Street Festival in front of Walton’s for 36 YEARS! He is the longest running vendor, he’s been here since the beginning! He’s become famous for his walking wood and feather bird puppets as well as his rubber band guns - who has one?! 🙋🏼♀️ He has watched myself and my sister grow up - he and his wife, Christine, and daughter, Diane, are like part of our family.
This may be the last year that Don will be doing what he loves best - sharing his craft with all of you at Main Street Festival! If you are coming to Downtown Franklin for the festival, please stop by and show these incredible people some love! (They will be set up in front and slightly to the right of our storefront.) Come on down this Saturday, April 27th and Sunday April 28th! ❤️

It’s that time of year! We have hidden the Walton’s Golden Egg in Downtown Franklin! The lucky finder will win this gorgeous 14K yellow gold and diamond necklace. Happy Hunting!
The hiding and hunting guidelines:
The egg is outside - not inside a store
The area where the egg has been hidden includes the square, Main Street, and the area around the Five Points intersection (see map for highlighted boundaries)
You will not have to climb or move anything to get to the egg
Sweet Melba and her brothers and sisters, Walton, Garnet, Topaz, and Jewel are available for adoption in our window today from Williamson County Animal Center during Downtown Franklin’s Main Street Festival! We will be sponsoring their adoption fees, so come on down if you’re looking to add a furry family member! 🐈💕
We are thrilled to have been hand selected to take part in Nashville's The Big Fake Wedding on March 29th at Covey Rise! We will be outfitting one lucky bride and her bridesmaids as well as the groom with fabulous Walton's pieces!
"Complete with a cocktail-style dinner, an emotional vow renewal ceremony and a dance-party reception, The Big Fake Wedding has become a killer alternative to a bridal show. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the "wedding guests" (brides-to-be, bridesmaids and friends/family!) get to hear the music, taste the cakes, and smell the flowers... while enjoying a night of great food, dancing and surprises."

Mike and Julie are at The Factory in Franklin today for the annual NPT Appraisal Day! (Think Antique Road Show style fundraising event for the network!) The funds raised help support NPT (Nashville Public Television) to continue airing shows like Downton Abbey (a personal favorite!)!
We see many jewelry treasures throughout the event, but our favorite thus far? This fabulous Tiffany & Co. Old Mine cut and Old European cut diamond ladies platinum watch, circa 1910! We have estimated the value to be in the ballpark of $20,000! A gorgeous find, indeed!
Diamonds, errr, PUPPIES are a girls best friend!
