Our ever changing inventory: Smoky Mountain Antiques & Vintage collectibles - Estate furniture, Laughing Dingo Studio (Barn Quilts, original art, etc) HUGE selection of M.I. Hummel items & much more! THE STORE MOVED FROM OUR MAIN STREET LOCATION IN 1/2016! As of 2017, our studio, Laughing Dingo Studio, now has it's own gallery - right next to our antiques/collectibles store! Just a reminder that Laughing Dingo Studio produces CUSTOM Barn Quilts Squares (your color, size, design), stock Barn Quilt Squares (all sizes - in stock ready for you to select off of our walls and take to your home to love), original art (oils, etc), barn wood signs, Smoky Mountain crafts, homemade felt items (Christmas stockings, ornaments, cats, etc)... and MUCH more!

Spent about 30 minutes with my wife in A Cat in the Attic. They have quite a collection of old books, furniture, and Hummel figurines. Worth a visit.

If you are into Hummels they have a couple hundred or so for you to choose from. I'm not into "collectibles" so its just not for me. Just my preference.

Hummels are just part of our inventory. Most of the store is devoted to the local Smoky mountain estate finds. Maybe you will try us again some time. Thank you for the review.
