In this community, you will find truly unique, handmade goods ranging from soaps and candles to leather goods, ceramics, quilts, metal works and wood carvings. Fine arts lovers will enjoy Beech Branch Crafts & Gallery for gorgeously intricate wood-worked art or Brushstrokes & Wonderworks of the Smokies for beautiful canvas paintings.
