The wood storage buildings are made by a Mennonite group out of Kentucky, and he gets the Amish furniture from some brothers down near the Alabama state line. 

Woods, who has lived in Mt. Juliet for over 40 years, wants to see the north side of town reach the success that the south side has. That is why he uses small businesses in the area, and tries to help them in any way he can. 

RC Trailers is located at 14565 Lebanon Road, next to the U-Haul facility. You can reach them at (615)790-3141 or by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Juliet citizens might need, so if you know something that might be a good addition to RC Trailers, be sure to let him know.

With the motto of buy local, build local, A Jones of All Trades is bringing handmade jewelry, home décor and toys to Mt. Juliet. 

“I’ve been a crafter from a very young age,” said Owner Becca Jones. 

That love of crafts of all kinds gave birth to the store on Lebanon Road where 25 vendors display all their handmade items. The crafters vary anywhere from stay at home moms to retired persons, all building what they love. 

“Everything in my store has a story,” said Jones. 

Jones collected the vendors through sources like Etsy and Craigslist, and her husband collected some reclaimed wood to build the beautiful display cases in the store. Jones herself makes several items like jewelry and headbands. 

A Jones of All Trades wants to be more than a retail shop. They want to be active in the community whether it be craft nights, doing events in the schools, or benefits. This fall, they are going to do a family festival at the Rec Center. They will also have classes on starter beading or how to make the yarn clutches that are for sale in the store. 

Jones is always looking for new vendors. You can seek them out on Facebook or email them at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Eat, Drink & Be Merry: Cajun Seafood PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Born and raised Creole, La., Leland Rutherford has been bringing the food he grew up on to Mt. Juliet for a few years now. 

Cajun Seafood recently opened a new restaurant in Cool View Plaza across from the Hickory Hills subdivision, but it has been several years in the making. 

Rutherford used to work on the oil platforms, seven days on, and seven days off, and his down time he would take out his shrimp boat. 

When he moved to Tennessee, he would travel back down to Louisiana and bring the shrimp back with him. After his friends would eat the food he cooked up from his trips, they would start asking him to bring them back shrimp. So he went to school in Georgia to get a retail-wholesale license, and started selling out of a building on his land on Bass Lane. 

That led to a food trailer that he purchased to take to the Wilson County Fair. Because of the popularity of the fair, Rutherford decided to park the trailer across from West Elementary School. 

And it kept snowballing from there, until his daughter and son-in-law decided they wanted to get in the restaurant business, and that led to the new restaurant open at 14833 Lebanon Road. 

“Maybe one day we will franchise,” said Rutherford. He said he has talked with a few people about that possibility and considered it. 

Rutherford is cooking up all your cajun favorites like gumbo, jambalaya, alligator meat, crab, oysters, red beans and sausage, cajun spaghetti and shrimp etouffe. They even have crawfish when they are in season. 

Cajun Seafood is opened Monday and Tuesday and Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. They are closed Sunday and Wednesday. 

You can check them out on Facebook under Cajun Seafood LLC, or reach them by phone at (615)288-3264.
