East Nashville Now!

EP #15 Hempopotamus!

December 13, 2015

On today’s show I am very pleased to finally have with me here in the Tree House Studio, Kim Hussey Ross, the owner of Hempopotamus, one of my very favorite little shops here in East Nashville.
In this episode Kim and I talk about the good news that Hemp can now be grown by farmers here in Tennessee and elsewhere in the U.S. We talk a bit about the history of Hemp and a future that looks bright for this miracle plant. We also talk about Kim’s own creations – from her hemp based skin care products and hair care products, to her hand made jewelry and other unique creations that are available right here in East Nashville at Hempopotamus. Hempopotamus is located at The Shoppes on Fatherland.
1006 Fatherland Street, Suite 208.

And a special thanks to our sponsor Moonshine Cowboy Boot Wax, the Original, All Natural, non-toxic boot wax with a scent of orange. The Nashville Wax Company is now offering Moonshine Biker Boot Wax – yes the same high quality boot wax now available in black.

Moonshine Miracle Residue Remover is now available at Cumberland Hardware at 1018 Woodland Street @ 5 Points.

To order a tin of your very own, just go to MoonshineBootwax.com. Buy it there online or check out the growing list of local retailers in and around Nashville who carry these fine boot wax products.

Y’all be good to each other out there and remember to do something nice for one of your neighbors. It will make you feel good inside!
