Wonderful baskets to give and receive 4/4/2006

I have been on the giving end of a Sunshine Shop basket more times than I can count and on the receiving end 3 times. Whether giving or receiving, it is just a pleasure to see one of their baskets. Their fruit baskets are amazing with very delicious pieces of fruit. You can even get customized baskets for special occasions which are very fun to give to loved ones. more

Sunshine Shop 11/11/2005

Great location near three major hospitals in Nashville. It's a great place to browse and pick up a special basket with or without balloons for someone. The baskets are delightful to look at and once they are filled with goodies - they are hard to give away. The service is excellent; they have been around for a long time. I highly recommend the Sunshine Shop and the name fits!! more

THE place to go for fruitbaskets 7/27/2005

The Sunshine Shop is THE place to go in Nashville if you want to send awesome and unique fruit baskets. You can rest assured they will do you a good job. They've been at it for many many years. The fruit baskets are not just fruit though; it's all in the presentation. Some of the ones they send for special occasions such as the birth of a child are amazing. They have a great selection, the fruit is first class and not too ripe and they have delicious specialty nuts, chocolates, coffees, teas, and gifts that go in them. You will not be disappointed. PROS: Best place in Nashville to send a fruitbasket CONS: none I can think of more

  • A Little Something About Us

    The greatest thing about our shop is our history.  The Sunshine Shop is one of the oldest businesses still in operation in Nashville, TN.  Always family owned and operated, The Sunshine Shop has seen three generations of gift makers.  Since 1954, we’ve created our baskets with the taste and style of the time.  That’s 56 years of design ideas for your baskets; enough experience to be the premiere place for your gift giving needs. It all started in 1944 when a local fruit and vegetable wholesaler named Lon Tanksley decided to make fruit baskets for his friends and employees at Christmas time.  He enlisted the help of his daughter, Mary Ann Papuchis, and her best friend, Aileen Rogers.  Mrs. Rogers developed our first fruit basket design for Mr. Tanksley that year.  It was so popular among their recipients that Mr. Tanksley began to sell fruit baskets as a side business out of his wholesale produce warehouse, creating the first gift basket shop in Nashville, TN.  After closing down the wholesale business, Mr Tanksley opened The Sunshine Shop, supplying Mary Ann and Aileen with new and exciting items for their gift baskets.  When Lon Tanksley retired in 1954, he left his shop to Mary Ann and Aileen.  In 1962 they settled upon an old house in midtown Nashville, located at 1912 Church St., where the shop remains to this day. When Mary Ann retired in 2002, Aileen’s daughter, Janet Stewart, bought into the business. Janet has revitalized The Sunshine Shop with new and creative gift ideas from her extensive retail experience.  Aileen can still be found at the shop on occasion, giving a final thumbs-up on our products and sharing her vast knowledge of design experience with the new generation of employees: her grandchildren and their friends.  Come by and see why The Sunshine Shop is Nashville’s leader in gift giving for over 56 years!
