"Mama" Nancy Phillips
When you stop by Bluebird Antiques and Ice Cream Parlor, in Bell Buckle Tennessee, Nancy Phillips, better known as Mama Phillips, will welcome you and brighten your day. You will leave with a smile and a story to tell. Bluebird Antiques and Ice Cream Parlor offers hand-dipped ice cream, homemade waffle cones, old-fashioned banana splits, homemade fudge, caramel corn, and Mama Phillips’ fried pies. “The ice cream shop draws a lot of folks from Manchester, Tullahoma, Murfreesboro and Shelbyville,” said Billy Phillips, Mama Phillips’ son. “Most of them come weekly, and some come a couple times a week to get pies and ice cream and eat at the Bell Buckle Café.” What attracts visitors to the ice cream store is the devotion that goes into each of the homemade treats.
