Our shop, The Smiths, was established in 1979.  Since that time we have carried, in addition to our own handmade knives and scrimshaw,  a great selection of the handmade, the collectible, and the unusual.  We welcome you to browse our website, or if  you are in our area, to come by and visit our shop, which is located in the historic Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community on Glades Road, three miles from downtown Gatlinburg.

Included in our site are examples of what we have for sale.  Please call for the availability of items, as we have new pieces each week. We also carry in our shop a much larger variety of unusual, unique, and collectible items than we show on our website.  We invite you to call or email us if you have a particular item in mind which is not listed on our site and we will try to help you find it.

Many of our customers over the years have told us that we have one of the most unique and unusual shops they have ever visited.  Many of our customers also say that it is like visiting a museum.  (We always tell them "thank you," but the biggest difference between our shop and a museum is that most everything we have in our shop is for sale.) The main reason that people keep coming back to see us is that we are always finding new and unique items for our shop. Check back to this site regularly, as we will try to add new and different items as often as possible.

If you see something you like, please order it now. Many of our things are one of a kind and are sold very soon after we get them.
