Antiquing in the Great Smoky Mountains

The Great Smoky Mountains are a wonderful place to go antiquing. The rich history of Appalachia is a storied one and goes back hundreds of years. This kind of mountain folklore lives on today through the amazing artifacts and relics that people have managed to preserve over the years. So if you've got an affinity for old furniture, crafts, knick-knacks, and all things antique, Pigeon Forge is the place to be! Within just minutes from the Ramada, you'll find some of the quaintest and quality antique shops around.


Wears Valley Road is where you're going to find the good stuff. If you're coming down the Parkway from the Ramada, make a right onto Wears Valley Road and head down for about a mile and a half until you arrive at Yesterday's Antiques – a shop run by a married couple. You'll find a great and selection of unique, quality, and clean antiques here. They're open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Saturdays until 5.


After that, keep heading down the road and you'll find yourself at the Antique Mall. In operation in Pigeon Forge since 2011, but in the antique business for over 25 years, the Antique Mall is your one stop-shop for all things of yesteryear! Check out their brand new annex containing even more goodies!


Nestled even further along down the road is Aunt Debbie's Country Store – which is not just antiques! Many of the fine goods and crafts sold here are actually homemade. This is a great spot to pick up the work of local artisans and craft makers.


There's no better place for antiques and country goods than the Smoky Mountains! Be sure to ask our friendly staff here at the Ramada for any more recommendations they may have.
