Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Kentucky: Peacock on Third. Peacock on Third is located in Bardstown. Catherine Clements opened the store in 2009. Peacock on Third began as a women’s clothing and accessories store but has since expanded to carry men’s items. Catherine operates the store with the following characteristics in mind: a warm, fun environment, a well edited collection of stylish, affordable clothing, and service that is genuine and not pushy.
Bardstown is Kentucky’s second oldest city. The city was first settled in 1780 by David Bard. Bardstown is known as the world capital of bourbon making. Four working distilleries (Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Heaven Hill, and Barton) are located in or nearby the town. Bardstown hosts the annual Kentucky Bourbon Festival each September. My Old Kentucky Home State Park—site of the mansion that inspired Kentucky’s state song—is located in Bardstown.
