“Interesting”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I never get tired of this area. All original products. Very friendly people. I particularly like 2 of the woodworking shops and always buy something. Lots of history to be learned if you talk to some of the craftsmen.

“Stop here to partake in the amazing talent of the Smoky Mountains artists!”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

I had a pair of moccasins made for me - *hand made* by Panther Moccasins. Best pair of shoes I own! Kept my feet warm all winter without the least amount of sweaty feet. WOW!

“The Hidden Gem of Gatlinburg”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

If you go to Gatlinburg and you don't take a day to visit the arts and crafts community, you are missing the best of Gatlinburg. Alewine Pottery is awesome. We bought about $1000 worth of mugs and lamps and vases for our home. The craftwork is astounding. The maple leaves carved into every piece make this pottery stand out and a shoe-in must have for any home in the northern US and Canada. Can't wait to get home and start using the giant soup mugs!

“Away from the hustle and bustle”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We wanted to get some souvenirs for our moms and decided to try here. It's before downtown so it's not as crazy traffic wise. They have a bunch of little shops. From pottery, to paintings, to Christmas decorations, food, candles, and more. It was fun to wander around for an hour before lunch. Prices were pretty average for home arts and crafts. Worth a visit

“Lots of shops closed on Sunday”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Our busy long weekend got away from us and we didn't get out to Glades road until Sunday. We found lots of shops closed for the day which was disappointing. Alewine Pottery was open and we enjoyed our shopping there.
