Valentines Day in Gatlinburg

Happy Valentine’s Day!! We hope you are enjoying (or planning) your trip in the Smokies! The weather is not cooperating the way we would like, but we hope you are enjoying the snow!

While in town for Valentine’s day, treat your someone special to some locally made gifts without breaking the bank. The Arts and Crafts community has over 60 stores with crafts, candles, jewelry and paintings. One of my favorite stores is “Good Natured Gifts” which is located in the Smoky Mtn Arts and Crafts Village on Glades Rd. Owner/Artist Lynn Rogers does beautiful silk paintings and everything in betweeen.

LynnRogers@Charter.net Another fave is the soy candle shops, they have a great smell and you can use the melted wax as moisturizer! “Deb’s Soy Candles” offers soy candles, handmade baskets and wood crafts. There are lots of scents to choose from and all at great prices! Deb’s is located at the Glades Center suite 7. Located in the arts and crafts community, Elk Springs Resort Gatlinburg Cabin Rentals is just minutes from this shop.

And last but not least-We all love jewelry! Check out “Wrapped Elegance” in the Glades Center. Becky, the owner/artist makes one of a kind jewelry using a variety of natural stones, glass beads and silver and gold wire, the jewelry is great and inexpensive! A must see while shopping in Gatlinburg!

We hope everyone enjoys their vacation and uses caution while driving in the snowy weather!!
