In and around the Smokies live many talented crafters. People who are carrying on traditions and art forms from their ancestors. They are potters, blacksmiths, jewelry and soap makers, bee raisers, cooks and bakers. The Cottage Craftsman in Bryson City, NC offers a taste of all these artisans have to offer. In a quaint yellow house next to the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad depot, you can find everything from local honey and wine to pottery and jewelry. They even have CDs showcasing the talent of our local musicians. These arts reflect the beauty of the Smoky Mountains and the people who live there. Take a little piece of our region home with you when you go!
