I always make my annual trip to Cottage Craftsman. I pick up my supply of handcrafted soaps and I usually find a piece of pottery or new necklace medallion that I can't live withou. I'm sure you will find something special too. Enjoy!

I go here every couple months for homemade soap as well as for gifts for family. Some of the items are pricey but you can find some really cool handmade cards, soap, and pottery.

Love this store. Some of my favorite mountain artisan finds (for us and gifts) are from this charming store! Shop local and support this friendly store owner.

This is a great little shop in downtown Bryson. I collect pottery coffee mugs & like to pick one up whenever possible & was able to get a great mug for my collection.
