Quaint Little Store Called the Panache With Beautiful Items in the Smokies

As some of you may know we recently just came back from the Smokies and we decided to try a few new shops out this time around.  We came across this quaint little shop with a lady sitting in her wing back chair by the fireplace, with baskets of yarn and threads surrounding her.  She spins her days knitting and crocheting some of the most beautiful items, such as hats, scarves, gloves and so many other items.  Jeanne M. Clark is the lady who weaves her magic into these unique creations.  Such a sweet lady and a joy to talk with, almost each piece has a story to go with it.  If your looking for a one of a kind gift for that special lady, then be sure to stop in and spend a few moments browsing this interesting little store called Panache located close to the Arts and Craft Community, the physical address is 1402 E. Parkway Suite 8, Gatlinburg, TN 37738  

This World War 2 Style Hat we purchased for our daughter was a surprise she just loved, she had been hinting how much she liked it in the earlier part of the week and we snuck back and got it for her for Christmas. Something for all the ladies made especially by Jeanne.

A Real Treat, The Cabin Cafe

Sometimes you just find a rare treat along the way in life and this is just what our family found as we walked in the door of The Cabin Cafe  A quaint little cafe tucked ever so sweetly in the Arts and Craft Community. Being greeted by Duane the owner from the moment we walked in the door, to the friendly service we received, to the warm waves we departed with in making a new friend, we knew we had found a favorite new place to eat.  This little eatery has homemade foods, from rueben quiche, peanut butter pie, to mouthwatering sandwiches and soups, even foods prepared gluten free and vegan dishes.  The first trip we made was a let's check out this little place and get a cup of coffee!  The flavored coffees are so yummy, we enjoyed ours while eating a scrumptious piece of Peanut Butter Pie and watching Duane prepare many treats for his other patrons.  Since we had already eaten that day, we decided to come back and sample the many dishes he cooks from scratch.  The quiche is the best I have ever had, the meatball sandwich had just the right amount of sauce and cheeses added to it and of course another piece of peanut butter pie and flavored coffees were a must!  Between the atmosphere, the rustic charm, the food and the service you cannot go wrong with a trip to The Cabin Cafe  Visit their site to see their full menu, hours of operation and learn more about this little treat hidden in the Arts and Craft Community of the Smokies.  Tell Duane the Baileys from the Beary Blessed Cabin sent you and enjoy!
