I have enjoyed wandering in some of the quaint shops around downtown Kingston recently. Though there are several more shops I plan to feature on the blog, I decided to start with these three as I was just in them this week. So stay tuned for shopping Part II…
- Smokey Mtn Mercantile (Click here to like and follow them on Facebook!)
If you want to find antique gems in good condition at an affordable price, you’ll want to stop here. Regina Walker, the owner, has a fully stocked inventory and is always freshening the store with new items. The store is closed on Saturdays until school starts back up, so she’ll be back to her normal Saturday hours very soon. Lovely owner and a lovely store!
M-F 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Sat 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

- Shabby White Owl (Click here to like and follow them on Facebook!)
A couple steps down from the Mercantile is the Shabby White Owl boutique that opened up about 3-4 months ago. Cutest monogrammed purses, bags, jewelry, beauty products. Just a great selection of gifts and personalized goodies. I also hear they are planning to open another room toward the rear of the shop to showcase furniture, home decor, and clothing lines.
M-F 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Sat 10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

- Cloth and Chair Interiors (Click here to like and follow them on Facebook!)
I can’t get enough of this store. Located next to Food City in Kingston, this is your one stop shop for all things jewelry and home decor. Stop by this boutique and you’ll see chic lamps, luxe candles, one of a kind jewelry, and gorgeous statement peices for your home. Kari Openshaw, an East Tennessee Interior Designer, runs her studio within this cute little boutique. So you can schedule an appointment with Kari or grab a quick gift! Kari and her staff are super helpful, knowledgeable, and have an eye for design.
Tue – Sat 11:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
