History of the Brier Patch

The Brier Patch, Gatlinburg's distinguished retailer, provides the latest  Precious Moments Porcelain Bisque Figurines, Cherished Teddies and Enesco's best.   Dedicated to stocking a high volume of giftware including exclusive gifts.  We are honored by Enesco as Gatlinburg's most prestigious Precious Moments dealer.  We also feature Adoption Center Cherished Teddies pieces.   October through December, we offer Blackberry Christmas Decor.
The Brier Patch is located near the upper end of Gatlinburg at Light #7, stepping down into the Traders' Mall.  Within the Mall the Brier Patch is surrounded by seven other shops which sell Nascar collectibles, leather, toys, Coca-Cola and Anhueser Busch Steins.  There is a photo shop and a bar and restaurant.  We are continuing restoration of the Mall area.
Many guests take advantage of our waterfall area by resting on the benches while others "shop until their heart is content."
We invite you to Gatlinburg where memories are created...naturally!   Almost every day honeymoon couples stop by the waterfall to have their memory captured.  It is not uncommon for the Bride to arrive by limo with her court and then stroll into the Mall and discover our Precious Moments window and spend some time in our shop.

SEE... the awesome beauty of our forests, streams and waterways while picnicking your favorite spot.  And, don't forget your camera for the bears.

Brier Patch Collectibles and Decor Named Distinguished Service Retailer for Gatlinburg, by Enesco for in 2001 and again in 2002.  Congratulations! 
"As a Distinguished Service Retailer, you, the Brier Patch owners and employees exhibited an outstanding level of commitment to the Precious Moments Collection by Enesco and its valued collectors.  Among your many accomplishments, we recognize your attention to customer service and display expertise, participation in promotional programs and active enrollment of new club members."   Enesco's International Headquarters.


Gatlinburg's "Brier Patch" was originally created by a sharp business lady named Lucille Berry who later owned other Gatlinburg shops.  She originally began the Brier Patch on the parkway side, but because of the hundreds of guests coming into the shop and the "pushing out of would-be buyers," she made the decision to move back farther into the Mall...where we continue to grow today.
Lucille is no longer with the The Brier Patch, but we continue with the same passion to serve the public and to choose beautiful merchandise for our many tourists and regular customers.  We have upscaled since those early days, but still are "down-home" in attitude and understanding of our beautiful area and in the many areas that create a successful shop environment.  We continue to focus on having the best of each line.
For orders, you may call our toll free number at TBD.   We ship promptly.

We are proud to be an Enesco "Distinguished Service Retailer."
