About Arcade

Vibrant, fun and more than a little mischievous, Arcade is Nashville’s destination for unique children's toys and apparel brands, sourced from around the world.


Nashville native Genie Lockwood achieved a lifelong dream of owning a children’s shop when she opened Arcade in Nashville’s historic Hillsboro Village in 2015. Genie spent the prior decade in New York City, working as an actress and amassing an archive of antique fabric and furniture that eventually inspired her to open her first store, TK, in Brooklyn.


While living in New York, Genie met and married artist Alex Lockwood. Together, they have two small boys, Roman and Oscar. The Lockwood family is driven by creativity and imagination, and Genie thrives on being involved in the magical and mysterious childhood world imagined daily by her sons. It is through this experience that she brings Arcade’s colorful, nostalgic-inspired universe to life.
