Ellie Monster

In 2009, Ellie Monster opened in New Orleans' French Quarter. A small shop on a residential street, it was packed full of vintage western wear and Ellie's own designs. We had a lovely run in New Orleans and had so many awesome customers there, but the city just wasn't the best fit for what we were doing. So we packed everything up and moved to Nashville in 2012.

We are currently located in the Shoppes on Fatherland at 1006 Fatherland in East Nashville. Our store hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 12-6 pm so feel free to come on by!

Frequently asked questions
What is the “vintage fabric” found in so many item descriptions?

Unless stated otherwise, this is older fabric that’s never been previously used to make anything. I get vintage fabric from a variety of places; I buy from creative reuse stores, estate sales, occasionally thrift stores, and from private individuals.

Occasionally I’ll find vintage items that are suitable for reuse- items made from used materials contain this info in their descriptions.

What kinds of fabric are used in these items?

I use a great deal of vintage fabric, and while sometimes the fiber type is known and listed in the item’s description, sometimes it’s a bit of a mystery- especially when it comes to blends and their percentages.

If you have specific needs/wants/desires when it comes to fiber types, please send me a message and I’ll let you know which garments will work best for you.
