Lots of local honeys and jams. Good selection of native craft items. Open year round. Several different preserved meats like country ham and pork belly. Parking is a bit rough as it's right on a big curve on the mountain side.

We really enjoyed stopping at Bearmeat's! It was a beautiful place with lots of amazing art and gifts. We picked up some blackberry cider which was out of this world. Everyone was really friendly. I definitely recommend stopping by if you get a chance.

I hesitate even calling it a store, because it is really a cultural experience! The handcrafted items are exquisite, and the clerks are so engaging. This visit was our second annual trek, and we will surely be back next year.

We stopped here after driving the Blue ridge Parkway. The best assortment of souvenirs, food, books and the most friendly staff. I bought several items here to take home. I will definitely stop here again if ever in the area.

One of the best places to find authentic and beautiful art. They also have a beautiful selection of high quality Native American flutes. Make it a point to stop in and see everything. You won't be disappointed.

This is an authentic Native American store. Forget the "made in china" crappy imports in the main strip! This is the real deal! The handmade soaps and creams are amazing. I stock up on the cracked hand cream and MSN cream (perfect for muscle soreness...More
