We visited the 32nd Annual Gatlinburg Craftsmen's Fair at the Gatlinburg Convention Center in October, 2007. We just just amazed by the over 197 booths that were set up showing so many different types of arts and crafts as well as Tennessee down-home music. Rocky Top was sung to clapping and toe tapping. We found out while we were visiting Gatlinburg that this very famous song was written in Gatlinburg. I also thought it was written in "Rocky Top". So much for my knowledge.
Anyway, you can see everything from Faberge type eggs, to decorative pottery, gourmet sauces, wood furniture, clothing with appliques, coin jewelry, stained glass, copper art, antique quilts, all sorts of artists, Christmas decor, and even things made out of antlers. There's no end to what these people can do with anything.
If you're in Gatlinburg from the middle to end of October, you must stop at the Craftsmen's Fair. It only costs $5 admission and children 12 and under are admitted free.
