If you want to come check out our store, you’ll be glad to know we aren’t hard to find! We are right across from the Five Oaks Tanger Outlet on the Parkway. Our building is on the hill, slightly off the road, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t easy to get to!

2. Variety of Gifts
At our Smoky Mountain general store, you’ll find that there’s a variety of gifts. As soon as you walk in, you’ll see beautiful displays of our latest home decor items. There are several Smoky Mountain themed t-shirts, trinkets, and more in the front as well. Get ready to head out into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park by looking through our apparel section for your favorite brands, or pick up some souvenirs to remember your trip, like magnets or stickers. As you make your way to the back of the store, you’ll see hand poured candles, handmade pottery, and an entire kitchen section.
3. Free Samples
A major reason why you may want to come visit our store is to take advantage of our free samples! In the back of the store, you will find a kitchen area where there are unique gadgets, food items, and a candy counter. We offer our guests free samples of tea blends, so you can steep a cup and try it before you buy it. We usually set out a couple of pickles and dips with chips for you to try, and sometimes we will have made up cider and a pot of soup or chili for guests to sample. You’ll love trying our food before you decide to purchase it!
4. Watch Potters Work
Another fun reason to come visit our Smoky Mountain general store is to watch potters work in our studio. We have people who make all of the handmade pottery in the store, and guests can actually watch the entire process from start to finish. You are also able to speak with the potters and ask questions about their work. You won’t want to leave the store without picking up at least one unique handmade piece of art!
5. Next to Fantastic Businesses
After you’re done browsing through our store and you’ve picked up a few gifts to take home, you could head outside to relax on our outdoor patio. We are right next door to Cruze Farm where you can get delicious ice cream with a variety of toppings, and eat your treat on the outdoor patio.
