Antiquing in the Smoky Mountains
It's a fact of life that everyone has their own special interests and hobbies that govern a portion of their life. So, when making your way through the streets and pathways of the various towns of the Smoky Mountains, you might be wondering where to engage in the sorts of shopping that spark your fancy. In this article, we'll focus specifically on sites that specialize in a hobby that evokes memories and reflections on the past, much like the Smoky Mountains themselves. I'm speaking, of course, about the pastime of antiquing.
One antique shop of note is The Common Good in Sevierville, Tennessee. This location sports vintage and antique furniture, accessories, and, to top it all off, handmade arts and crafts from local artists! To add to the excitement of this location, all the rooms in the store have themes based around what items you will find within them. So, you can expect to find your antique kitchen items in the kitchen room, and your bath accessories in the bathroom. This is an apt gimmick, as the store itself is based out of an old house.
And let's not forget the one-stop shop that is the flea market. The Great Smokies Flea Market and Antiques could very well be your next full-time hangout spot, and is located conveniently close to Sevierville and Pigeon Forge. Clocks, jewelery, figurines, furniture – you name it, and you're likely to find it at this mammoth location, which is hailed as one of East Tennessee's top attractions.
These are just two of the many, many antique stores that can be found around the Smoky Mountain region. Other locations of note include Morton's Antiques and Coins in Gatlinburg, as well as Heartland Antiques and Collectibles, Action Antique Mall, and Tudor House in Sevierville. With all of these choice spots just waiting to be combed by inquiring customers, you can be assured that if antiquing is an interest of yours or anyone in your family's, then the Smokies are bound to be that much more riveting!
