Dollar Tree Easter Crafts: Dollar Tree Easter Bunny Pots
In the Great Mountains of Smoke, more than flowers bloom at Easter. Every spring, artists, craftsmen, and historians gathered at the Convention Center in downtown Gatlinburg, TN. They come en masse from across the country for this famous event to see the incredible creations of those who normally live in the middle of the eight-mile circuit known as the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community. Every year in April, this annual Easter craft showcase is held with the participation of local talent.
Nationally recognized artisans present their best work
This annual event is the brainchild of the Great Smoky arts and crafts community. This creative village consists of the largest collection of independent artists and craftsmen in the United States. Since 1937, their impressive works have found a home along the historic eight-mile circuit – a nationally recognized Tennessee Heritage Arts and Crafts Trail. From April 20-23, 2011, you’ll find everything worth showing, collecting or giving to a valued friend.
Stroll through a series of colorful booths and exhibits. Talk to the artisans who create small masterpieces before your very eyes. There is no smoke or mirrors here. The artisans stay true to their roots. The works, which are made according to traditional concepts and with wonderful tools, are all designed and produced by hand. It couldn’t be more American.
Find all kinds of craftsmanship you can imagine
Whether you’re a long-time fan or a newcomer to the scene, you can expect original and collectible classic works created by carving, chainsaw cutting, painting, sewing, casting, weaving, and carving.
Be amazed when skilled fingers and hands create unique gifts and treasures such as baskets, brooms, candles, ceramics, and more. You can choose from the finest silver jewelry and handmade fashion, as well as leather goods, artwork, and candles. Do you think this is like any other fair you’ve visited? It’s not! The range of skills on display and the remarkable variety of unique handcrafted products will surprise you.
Rare art forms on display and for sale
For example, the Easter Craft Fair is one of the few places where you can see and buy Scrimshaw. This ancient art form began when American sailors aboard whaling ships carved intricate patterns and images into pieces of whalebone. Today, artists dedicated to this tradition have adopted scrimshaw and engraved it on various types of bones. This truly American art is rare but is available at the Easter Arts and Crafts Show.
Here the tradition lives on in the work of the artisans, some of whom are now in their second or third year. What are you waiting for? Grab your girlfriends, pack up the family or organize a church outing, and head to Gatlinburg soon.
