Being from Tennessee an now living in Atlanta the only time I get back is for football in the fall. When in Knoxville my wife LOVES to visit Mask store. They have a little bit of everything. From boots to candy. One stop shop.

Mast General Stores are very similar one from the other, but they are fun and full of bargains, nevertheless. I picked up some beautiful shirts for a song, and a huge bag of their delicious salt-water taffy. [The Mast candy selection is like going back...More

As the name implies, it takes on a "general" store approach with lots of stuff and a fairly large floor area considering being in the Old City. Allow yourself some time to look around. Definitely a good place to go when visiting the Old City.
