I'm always a bit skeptical about "gift shops" but decided to look in anyway. I was amazed. Everything was real, not plastic. The shop exudes a rustic, honest feel with a diverse inventory. The staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend a visit.

Unique items. Local handmade items. Reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Crafts you will not see otherplaces. Not touristy.

Handtiques has an excellent selection from local and regional artist and craftsmen. The store itself has a great look and feel about it. The owners have carefully selected what is in the store and are very knowledgable about each item and who made it. They are working hard to support "made in the USA" goods and the people who make them. I strongly recommend them.

This is definitely NOT your average run of the mill shop! They have lots of interesting and unique items, I was especially impressed with the clocks that were made of a vinyl 33rpm record specific to an artist or group and then carved into something for that artist/group. The customer service is wonderful and the owner was so friendly and helpful, she found exactly what I was looking for.

This store had great candles and soaps all made with natural ingredients. Also had jellies and jams that were locally made.

Overall, this is a special shop because one could view some of many unique homemade items and appreciate them or buy something that is now and will be in the future a great collectable. Many different items not available at other shops in the United States..

Love this store! If you want to buy beautifully handcrafted items made in America from a shop run by a local family, not a chain, then this is the place for you! I have given lovely one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry to friends and family who have received many compliments on these beautiful, unique pieces, some of which are made by the owner herself! For a small shop, they really have a lot of variety from a lamp made from a fishing pole to clocks made from old records, cheese and bread boards, soaps made in Raleigh, jams and jellies, and much more. It's always fun to stop in the shop whenever I'm in Blowing Rock!

We have been in Handtiques several times while visiting Blowing Rock, NC. We have purchased some unique items. I called Carol Temple out of the blue to ask if she knew anyone that could make a walking stick as a surprise for my husband's Christmas present. She said YES. The gentleman sent pictures of the finished product. Carol was so helpful and wonderful to work with on my project. Would highly recommend a visit to Handtiques.
