It was all hustle and bustle on Saturday morning at the 5th Annual One Stop Christmas Shopping in the Sevierville Civic Center. I had never been before and wanted to take a look since it was the fifth year in a row. I headed over around 10:40 a.m. and this is what I saw.

Crowds gathering around tables to look at gift ideas.

Local artist, Millie Derrick, displaying her pottery cups and bird houses in a unique stand!

These creations are so unique! I love looking at them every time that I see them.

Her creations are so unique. I have never seen this technique in pottery. It is delightful!

Millie has been selling her art at the Knoxville Farmer’s Markets for several years so her table is perfection!

I finally had time to talk to my friend and colleague, Larissa, about her product. I’m going to give it a try this week!

Loved looking at all the creative gifts.

When I smell the wonderful aromas from Allison’s room it makes me want some for my home. My friend Crystal will help me out with that tomorrow. If you like Scentsy, tell me your favorite fragrance. I have it narrowed down to seven.

There were several vendors with wonderful treats. I encouraged them to consider signing up for the Downtown Sevierville Holiday Market on December 2 and 3. It will need lots of Gingerbread Men, especially after the Christmas parade on December 3rd.

If you see this lady then stop and have a chat. Karen has worked with the Barker Lounge for dogs, plus she manages the Bloomingtails Boutique downtown, proceeds go to Pets Without  Parents. img_8199

She has participated in the Sevierville Commons Farmers Market this summer. I bought an orange and white Vols necklace from her for a great price.  An even more cool reason to have a chat? She is from Australia.

There were free treats for those who needed a refreshment.

This is located within the Bees Knees store. They are about to add more seating for lunch. Keep it mind!

On the way out of the building, it was fun to see two former students who are now working in city government. One is a Vice-Mayor, and the other, an Alderman. Good job, guys!

There was a lot to see and shop on Saturday. I know that I’ll go next year too when I am out and about in Sevierville.
