Books, Pencils, and Everything For School in Gatlinburg, TN

If you were like me as a kid, the best part of the school year was buying all of the new supplies to get ready for it. Notebooks, pens, pencils, a new backpack, and clothes were all on the to-buy list along with whatever else cropped up that I really “needed”, like that super-cool pair of neon-glo wristbads that all the kids would be wearing.

Although your kids may have traded out wristbands for those animal-shaped bracelets that are all the rave right now, they have no doubt started thinking about what kinds of things they will need to get ready for elementary school, high school, or even college. Take some time away from relaxing at your luxury cabin rental tomake the most out of your Gatlinburg vacation in your Gatlinburg Cabinsthis year and hit all of the sales to start school shopping early-and finish it early as well!

It may not be on your teacher’s required list of school supplies, your kids will want to hit the Magic and Novelty Outlet that has hundreds of fun games, activities, and, of course, magic tricks to wow their friends with at recess. Encourage their brain stimulation early and find them a real puzzler that will have the whole family stumped!

For nearly everything your student of any age could need, you will want to visit the Mountain Mall in downtown Gatlinburg. With 36 shops chock-full of food, clothing, accessories, supplies, equipment, and so much more, you might even pick up a few items for the house and yourself as well. You deserve it!

And finally, find them the perfect pair of shoes to get them from one period to the next in comfort and style at Natural Comfort Footware; they may be running between the bells but they will look great doing it!

After a long day of shopping for school, reward everyone with some treats from the Ole Smoky Kitchen Candy shop where sweet tooths are satisfied daily. Mountains of candy will be enough to tempt even the strictest dieter away from their regiment for a sweet indulgence.
