Several unique antique and collectible shops can be found on the Highway 11 Antique Trail, beginning in historic Lenoir City, and continuing south on Highway 11 to Loudon and Sweetwater. Antique shops in historic downtown Lenoir City have everything from vintage antiques, memorabilia, and collectibles to a selection of more modern furniture and gift ideas.
Watch for out-of-the-way antique and specialty stores on Highway 11 between Lenoir City and Loudon. Antique shops around the courthouse square in downtown Loudon carry a wide variety of items, from antique baskets made by Cherokee Indians to depression glass and primitive furniture. For lunch, stop by the cozy Dwelling Place on Wharf Street for homemade Southern and Italian fare.
As you travel on to Sweetwater you are sure to find something of interest to any antique enthusiast in one of the many fine antique shops that line the streets of the downtown area. Be sure to stop by the Sweetwater Flea Market before you leave town (open Saturday and Sunday only).
