Murfreesboro Mama: 14 Spots for Awesome Masks

Masks, anyone? And by anyone, I mean, everyone.

What once seemed optional is now necessary, whether for entering select establishments or entering a city mandating masks. It's also part of our own county's new #RutherfordResponsible movement to strongly encourage mask-wearing as COVID-19 numbers rise.

Now the question is, where can you find a good one? Especially for if you have sensitive skin, wear glasses, or have squirmy kids wondering why they have to wear the thing.

Aside from the growing selection of washable masks at big box stores like Target and Old Navy, a number of local makers are producing their own quality masks, buffs, and bandanas for adults and children and selling via Etsy, Facebook and in-store at small businesses. While a social media search will show lots of individuals making them, I stuck with those who offer them as part of their actual business.

Browse through some of these innovative creations (see slideshow), and pick up some around town or order customized ones for the family, like sports teams, superheroes, or favorite animals. It can make something necessary a little easier, and at least a whole lot more comfortable and fun.

Check out these 14 spots for awesome masks in Rutherford County.
