Shopping in Historic Jonesborough

Historic Jonesborough is a special place in so many ways, and shopping is on the top of the list. The picturesque downtown area with its landscaping and well preserved historic buildings creates a beautiful setting for a great shopping and dining experience. Inside these historic buildings you will discover hand-made crafts, one-of-a-kind gifts, and antique stores. Art galleries, gourmet food shops, fashion boutiques, and many other delightful retail shops make it a treat for locals and visitors to do their shopping in Jonesborough.

The shops are locally owned, but the retail diversity is amazing. You can find those special Appalachian Mountain crafts, art glass and jewelry from local artisans, and unique handcrafted gifts from around the world. And if you are a “do it yourselfer” there are art, craft, and quilt supply shops in town as well.

Located in the center of Northeast Tennessee, Historic Jonesborough is easy to get to from any direction when visiting the Johnson City, Kingsport or Bristol area of the Appalachian Mountains. Stop for a day, a week or forever, we love visitors and new friends. Shop ‘til you drop and then relax in one of the historic hotels or bed and breakfasts; you can’t beat “Jonesborough’s Old-Fashioned Experience”.
