Are you looking for handcrafted wooden gifts in the Great Smoky Mountains? Byrnes Woodcrafters is the perfect place to find artisan made key chains, toys, signs, chests, boxes and more. This family owned Gatlinburg shop offers the highest quality wood carvings in the Smokies.
Byrnes Woodcrafters is owned and operated by master craftsmen Ed Byrnes and his wife Christine. The Byrnes have ran their popular shop since 1986. When you visit Byrnes Woodcrafters you are likely to see Ed carving away in his workshop, crafting key chains, designing cedar chests or personalizing items.
At Byrnes Woodcrafters you will find a huge selection of expertly crafted gifts and souvenirs. Some of the most popular items at Byrnes are their hand painted whirligigs. These charming lawn decorations look like colorful birds, complete with wings that rotate in the wind. Byrnes also offers cedar key chains with your name on it for only $3. If you can’t find a keychain with your name, Ed will make a personalized key chain just for you.
Alpaca Fur Rugs and Teddy Bears
Another highlight at Byrnes is their unique collection of Alpaca fur rugs. Classified as wool, Alpaca fur doesn’t shed, so these rugs won’t make a mess of your home. Byrnes even offers stuffed teddy bears made from Alpaca fur. These adorable bears are fluffier than most, because Alpaca fur is ten times softer than sheep’s wool.
