Downtown Lexington has many antique shops, arts/crafts galleries & music venues.
Find art for that special place in your home, pottery or forged-iron candle holders to enhance your table, or that antique piece that fits in just perfectly.
Did I mention the locally made & designed jewelry? Spoil yourself or that kind neighbor who is bringing in your mail.
As you wander, you’ll find local coffee, ice cream and similar conveniently located between & among the shops. Shop/gallery & restaurant links below.
Music venues are varied: out door concerts in the summer, First Friday festivities and some restaurants on the weekends. Check their websites for the entertainment schedule. We even have a music shop for instruments or lessons.
