Cranberry Hollow

“They’re More Than Customers… They’re Family!”
By Jesse C. Boling, Co-Owner of Cranberry Hollow

Cranberry Hollow copyMany people are familiar with the very popular Cranberry Hollow, which was launched in Lenoir City in 2003 by husband and wife team, John and Sue Boling. It was their passion. They just loved their customers and considered them their extended family. So their decision to create a gathering place within Cranberry Hollow called the Buttercup Restaurant & Tea Room one year later was a welcomed decision that was featured in Southern Living magazine and earned them a nationwide award as retail store of the year.

Unfortunately, the recession took its toll on both the retail store and restaurant, and along with too many other businesses, was forced to close in 2008. And tragically, John, a former Vietnam veteran, lost his ongoing battle with cancer several years later.

But in true Boling fashion, my mother, Sue, and I reopened Cranberry Hollow in West Knoxville in late 2013, and this month we are celebrating our first anniversary in our new location. Expect the same friendly, homespun surroundings. Also, for our former customers, there remains the same family feel to Cranberry Hollow that John and Sue created and which I strive to maintain every day.

With our foundation rooted in the past, and with our eyes clearly on the future, we invite you to share our treasure trove of American, hand-crafted furniture, quilts, candles, jewelry, scarves, rugs, lamps, gourmet foods, stationary, prints, custom-made signs, and our season and everyday home décor items with you. Almost every product available is made in the USA.

We would also like to personally invite each of you to attend our Christmas Open House from November 20th through the 23rd, where you’ll discover something for everybody on your holiday shopping list. Be sure to check out our award-winning jam that has sold nearly 1,400 jars in just the last 12 months.
