It may not have the outlet malls, but Gatlinburg is still a rich mine to be explored when it comes to retail opportunities in the Smokies.
One of the most sought-after types of merchandise is handmade crafts, and you’ll find those in great quantity at the Great Smokies Arts & Crafts Community, which is a few miles north of downtown off U.S. 321. The eight-mile auto loop is home to dozens of shops, galleries and studios, where skilled artisans pursue their crafts. Naturally, there’s plenty of handiwork for sale—everything from pottery and woodwork to paintings and sculpture.
You’ll find lots more Gatlinburg shopping downtown, which is packed with even more craft stores and art galleries as well as souvenir shops, specialty boutiques and even places to purchase food items like homemade fudge and saltwater taffy.
