The Indian Village Trading Post & Great Smokies Flea Market

Recently my husband and I took a weekend trip alone to Pigeon Forge. The first we’ve taken in a long time without the kids. While returning home, we decided to stop at the Great Smokies Flea Market. Our chance to look as much as we wanted, without the boys complaining that they were ready to go home. It was a brisk, sunny day and there were actually several vendors set up outside. But, my first stop was to buy a funnel cake. Oh, it was so good! As we entered the building, I stopped at a booth were a gentleman was selling paintings with rustic frames to mimic window panes and shutters. I told my husband we would be coming back for one but I did not want to carry it. So, on we went. We purchased a new living room rug at a great price, several little dog trinkets for my little one’s curio, and many other small items. But my favorite purchases were from a Native American pottery place. This Indian Princess now resides above my mantle.


I got so excited about my new pottery, I left the flea market without a painting. I did not know the man’s name or how to get in touch with him. But, I do plan to stop by to see if he is still there next time I head back that way.

I have also since forgotten the name of the booth in the flea market. However, his brother, the one who makes the pottery also owns The Indian Village Trading Post at the edge of Fall Creek Falls State Park here in TN. There you can find many unique things such as wood carvings, painted feathers, pottery and much more. And while you’re there, check out the gorgeous waterfalls in the area. You’ll be glad you did!



About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.
