Our Story

Christmas and Candles StoreThe Christmas and Candles Shop is located on the serene and picturesque bank of the Little Pigeon River in The Apple Barn Village, directly off the parkway in Sevierville. As you step inside our 6000 square foot store, you will be greeted by glittering lights, beautifully decorated Christmas trees, holiday decorations and the tantalizing aroma of freshly poured candles. We pride ourselves on offering a unique assortment of products, all merchandised in a fun yet organized manner, for a great shopping adventure. Our mission is to provide a fun and pleasurable shopping experience for customers of all ages. As you stroll through the shop, you will be accompanied by softly playing Gospel, Christmas and Country music.
