Most of the stores in Cherokee are sad...selling toy bow and arrows, toy head-dresses, etc. This place is full of authentic Cherokee crafts. While some are expensive, it's still worth it to visit almost as a museum just to see the amazing work the Cherokee do with painting, drawing, woodworking, etc. Jewelry is cheap too...bought a necklace and bracelet for...

To see and buy lovely, high-quality Cherokee handicrafts, visit this beautiful gallery. Baskets are particularly stunning in their variety and technique; the name of the artist is attached to each basket. Pottery, dolls, woodwork, jewelry, and more are attractively displayed. Masks are impressive. A museum-type exhibit hall provides a history of the crafts. Prices here reflect the high quality of... More

We were wanting to pick up some authentic items while in Cherokee. They have a large selection of various pieces of art work. Baskets, woodwork, jewelry, clothing, paintings, and bead work. So very beautiful. A little pricey but I'm sure well worth the money as the artists must put in so much time. Bought a few items to enjoy and... More

The Cherokee people have been crafting now for centuries and they are well trained at their various skills. While very well made, get your wallet out - quality comes at a price. This is a nice place for collectors.

We went for the first time and really enjoyed it. Most of the items are very expensive. We didn't buy anything but soooo wanted to. Very beautiful art made by the Indians!

The authentic Cherokee craftsmanship in this market was beautiful! After looking at a lot of different shops in the area, trying to find jewelry and crafts made locally (of which there were surprisingly few shops that carried local artists' work), we found this gem.

A wide variety of local crafts were available. The rooms were open, airy, uncluttered. Lots of intricately woven baskets.

My husband and I visited here after touring the Cherokee Museum which is right across the street. The pieces that are on display and for sale here are authentic and absolutely stunning! I was just in awe of the craftsmanship of everything. I would have loved to have purchased a basket, but the prices just wouldn't allow it. I'm not... More
