They have some unique gifts made by local artist. They also have to die for homemade pork rinds! We brought some home and now our son and his friend from NY can’t wait to go there to buy more!

What a great gift shop! Owner is Cherokee and very nice, he talked to us for a while. The gifts are mostly made by the Cherokee People. I just wished I would have bought more from them :(
