Sheryl Crow readies her trove for City Farmhouse Pop-Up Fair this weekend

Sitting on a white couch inside City Farmhouse, Sheryl Crow and her gang continued to follow up on the preparations for the Pop-Up Fair this weekend, with dozens of packed boxes full of the rock-folk musician's collection throughout the years.

For the better part of 30 years, Crow picked her way across the country or what she called "junking."

"I loved to spend my time doing it when I was on tour," she said. "And we would just throw what I ever found in the back of the equipment truck and move on."

After purging her storage units and some of her houses in Los Angeles, Cali., Crow brought back some of what she thought was unique and suited for the Franklin fair. While there are few particular pieces she hates to part with during her home decor cleanse, one item stood out among the rest.

"There's a big facade from an old carousel that beautiful, but I never found a place to hang it," she said. "I originally thought it would hang over a bed in a bedroom, but it never got used."

Her favorite shops for picking are all across the country from Houston to Louisville, though most of her time now is spent with her kids at museums and enjoying time with them.

But once she arrived in Middle Tennessee and figured she couldn't move everything with her from the left coast, she decided she needed to get rid of what she had and to find a way for others to benefit.

"I told Kim and David [of City Farmhouse] that I wanted to simplify and raise money for the World Food Program," she said. "And they told me, 'Why not do it at the pop-up fair?'"

The City Farm House Holiday Pop-Up Fair will happen this weekend, Nov. 13-Nov. 15 at Jamison Hall at The Factory. Crow will be present at her booth along with a time for autographs and a raffle for the surfboard from her 2002 classic "Soak up the Sun" from her "Cmon, Cmon" album.

"I imagine anyone who is a fan in Nashville could come, but I am really interested to see who comes by," she said.

All proceeds from Crow's booth will go toward the World Food Program, a United Nations organization that helps various countries all across the globe.

First dibs on shopping her collection will take place during the market's Preview Party on Friday, Nov. 13, from 5-9 p.m. The $40 ticket offers four hours of early buying, plus complimentary wine, beer and a holiday Chex Mix bar. It also includes a live performance by Nashville's Jamie Higdo.

She'll be on-site to meet guests during Friday's Preview Party from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and again on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased in advance here, at the City Farmhouse brick-and-mortar shop at 230 Franklin Road, or by phone at 615-268-0216.

General admission tickets for Saturday and Sunday are $10 and can be purchased at the door each day.
