The Dixie Premieres Designing Women Curated Market


HUNTINGDON — The Dixie announces the launch of the Designing Women Curated Market, which highlights female-owned businesses across the state of Tennessee, Friday, March 18, and Saturday, March 19. The Designing Women Curated Market was birthed from the influence of Dixie Carter in her female-empowered role in the popular television show “Designing Women.”

Throughout the weekend, shoppers will experience a wide range of products plus services throughout The Dixie’s 3-story building including paintings, vintage, plants, candles, facial services and permanent jewelry.

The venue has already experienced a huge rush of excitement from local supporters! VIP tickets for Friday night’s exclusive preview are sold out, but tickets are still available for Saturday’s 11 a.m.-5 p.m. experience for $10.

The Dixie Carter Performing Arts & Academic Enrichment Center opened in 2005 and was named after Dixie Carter, a native of nearby McLemoresville, who found fame on Broadway and in Hollywood, never forgetting her rural West Tennessee roots.

From 1986 to 1993, Carter starred as Julia Sugarbaker in the hit sitcom “Designing Women,” which chronicled the lives of four women who owned an interior decorating business in Atlanta. Carter shined as the sharp-tongued, outspoken lead, starring with a stellar ensemble cast that included Delta Burke, Annie Potts, and Jean Smart. Carter’s husband, Hal Holbrook, for whom The Dixie’s theater is named, had a recurring role on the series.

This event is presented by FirstBank, with additional support by event sponsor, Hydro-Gear. To purchase tickets, visit The Dixie Box Office in downtown Huntingdon or call 731-986-2100, Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
