I love looking around this place. The variety and quality of the crafts is outstanding. From pottery to beadwork, carving to painting. There is something for every craft-aholic. Prices for sale items range from inexpensive to "mortgage the home" items. There is also a small historical area with vintage crafts. Kids, keep your hands in your pockets! Great to visit.

This is a great place to get authentic Cherokee crafted items. It is a wonderful place to buy items hand crafted. l love that it is a Native American cooperative, representing over 350 enrolled tribal members.

While some pieces are at the top range of prices there is... More

A great place to stop if visiting the Museum of the Cherokee Indian right across the street. The craftwork is impressive but baskets and pottery are very expensive if you are inclined to purchase any of the quality items.

Free to enter, the displays of artists are very interesting and enlightening. While crafts are pricey, these are pieces of art and worth it.

Items, especially the basketry, are beautifully made by traditional crafts persons. This is the place for guaranteed authentic work. Many items are well out of my price range, but there are nice less expensive things.

Loved browsing the the store and looking at the crafts even though we couldn't afford anything there. They have nice displays and history lessons if you can take the time to explore all the rooms. Check this place out!

Wonderful place. Authentic Native American arts and crafts from all over. No moccasins made in China here. The many beautiful shell, stone and wood carvings caught our eyes. As did the intricate chopping boards. Prices seemed reasonable for the quality of items displayed. By some miracle we walked out empty handed.
