“Fun adventure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Even though I had been to the Gatlinburg area in the past I had not taken the time to visit the Arts and Craft Community of shops. We took a few hours recently and had a great time visiting many of the stores and especially enjoyed the pottery places. Definitely worth exploring especially on a beautiful fall day.

“Wonderful, Quaint Community”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

This is a quaint, wonderful community. We enjoyed stopping at the different shops and browsing. This is a great place to while away an afternoon away from the hustle & bustle of Gatlinburg.

“What happened to the Crafts in Arts and Crafts, has everyone turned into an Artist”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

In the past years I really enjoyed the trip to the Arts and Crafts Community, but it appears it's not the same feeling in 2013. I like the drive more than the shops.

“Great Arts and Crafts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We were looking for the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Show....What an experience!! It took about 2 1/2 hours to see all the exhibitors!! They even had an entertainment...near the food stuff! It was really a great show!! We spent about 3/4 an hour at the entertainment---I think it Bob Steel...excellent! Also bought some Florida children's books...great prices! Also, my wife bought some earrings--that did not have a clip or a pierced earring...beutiful..someone makes them in the Gatlingurg-Sevierville-Pigeon Forge area!! It was a wonderful experience!!
