Hi! I'm Russie!


Connie Hasty and I started Encores Consignment 29 years ago. She recently retired, so I am now running the sale along with the help of Molly and Levis!


I live in Franklin with my husband Jamie. We have 3 grown children- Corianne is 30- she is a graduate of The University of Alabama and is now married to our wonderful son in law Pablo! They live in Las Vegas and have one son, Carter. Lincoln is 29 and lives in Nashville where he is the project manager for The Greathouse Company. Landon is 21 and attends the University of Tennessee Knoxville.


Even though our kids are grown, we are busy busy keeping up with them and and love spending time together! In my spare time, love traveling and seeing new places, being outdoors, and spending time with my sweet dog Mollie.


It is so fun seeing so many familiar faces at Encores- meeting new people, and also seeing customers now shopping for their grandchildren, who began shopping with us for their own kids 29 years ago!!


I’m Levis and I’ve been married to my husband Jim for 38 years.


We have 2 children and 7 grandchildren. My grandchildren range in age from 10 months to 14 years.


When I am not working this sale, I work for a wedding venue north of Nashville and I love the variety of things I do there!


I have worked with Encores for many years and love it and the relationships and friends I’ve made here.


Can’t wait to see everyone this year!

Hello, I'm Molly! I have been a consignor for over 10 years and started consigning with Encores in 2011. I volunteered for many years and in 2016 was approached by Connie Hasty and Russie Carter to take on the administrative duties for Encores. I was thrilled to take on this opportunity! When Connie decided to retire in Spring 2018, I was honored to be asked to take over her role. It has been challenging at times, but overall a very rewarding thing in my life!


I've lived in Franklin since 2011 with my husband, Alan, 15 year old daughter, Lauren (whom you will often see working at Encores as well!) and three rescue dogs Finnegan, Murphy & Lucy.


I'm fortunate to be a Stay-at-Home Mom which allows me to work in our community as a volunteer. I am currently the CFO for a local non-profit called The NOOK and an active member of the Nashville-Franklin Elks.


Encores is one of my favorite jobs!
