Amish Excellence

Discover What Sets Us Apart: Endless Possibilities

By Angie Carroll, Owner of Amish Excellence

One of the most rewarding aspects of owning Amish Excellence, in addition to routinely meeting with all of our Amish craftsmen, is the opportunity to push beyond the conventional view on just what comprises Amish furnishings. There has been the perception that Amish furniture is mostly comprised of shaker and mission style furniture, but nothing could be further from the truth. Customers are pleasantly surprised that we offer so many styles, which include mid-century modern, Asian-inspired, as well as contemporary designs.

I am in regular contact with the craftsmen who actually build the furniture for our customers. They are very receptive to learning about new trends and customer preferences in furniture design. A phrase we often say is, “If you can imagine it, we can build it.” In addition to tables, chairs, and beds, you’ll also find upholstered furnishings such as chairs, sofas, and loveseats in both fabric and leather.

One thing that has not changed is the Amish commitment to quality craftsmanship that simply doesn’t exist elsewhere. In addition, Amish Excellence is committed to a superior customer service experience. It is our mission to provide an exemplary product at a reasonable price. We sell only Amish-made furniture and do not offer imports, veneers, laminates, previously-owned, or pressboard furniture. Amish Excellence in the only store in the region with that exclusivity. Also, another point to consider is that each piece of furniture we sell is custom made to meet your specific needs.


Holiday entertaining and hosting is rapidly approaching. Now is the time to buy dining and bedroom furniture to have it arrive prior to December when your guests arrive. Please visit our newly expanded furniture showroom. We regularly add new inventory to the showroom and have new areas devoted exclusively to bedrooms, dining, and living areas. We are also featuring some new office and home office items that I think you will enjoy.

I look forward to meeting you and helping with your next home design and furniture project. Our showroom is located at the corner of N. Campbell Station and Grisby Chapel Road just behind Walgreens. We’re open Monday through Friday 10-6 and on Saturday from 10-4.

Update Your Home Without Upending Your Budget

Update Your Home Without Upending Your Budget

By Becky Hunt, Co-Owner of Premiere Consignment

Americans have discovered a variety of innovative ways to update their homes without the cost, inconvenience, or mess of a major renovation. By updating lighting, cabinet drawer pulls and door handles, new window treatments, and a thorough cleaning and painting, you can create that showcase look you’ve been dreaming of.

Another way to achieve that updated look is to add a new accent chair, sofa or loveseat, dining table, art, décor, or perhaps an Oriental rug. And thanks to Premiere Consignment in nearby and convenient Tellico Village, you’ll discover many of the items you’re looking for at incredible savings.

One of the most important features of being located within the heart of the Tellico Lake area is the opportunity to secure furniture, art, home décor items, and Oriental rugs from many of the area’s most luxurious homes. Also, because most of our consignors have relocated to communities such as Tellico Village and Rarity Bay from all across the country, we are able to offer you a large selection of items purchased by these same homeowners from all across the nation. Perhaps that’s why we are frequented by many of the area’s interior designers and decorators.

Currently we have an excellent collection of dining room furniture, sofas, loveseats, and recliners. And if you have a golf enthusiast in your home, you’ll love the several hand-signed golf prints from legendary sports artist, LeRoy Neiman, including an Augusta National serigraph also signed by Arnold Palmer.

Another feature that’s popular with both our consignors and retail customers is how quickly we’re able to turn our inventory. Customers appreciate it because the selection is greater, and consignors appreciate it because we don’t accept items for resale that are placed in storage indefinitely, awaiting placement in our retail showroom.

So whether you’re contemplating a home update or if you have some gently used furniture, art, décor, or Oriental rugs you no longer use, you’ll find Premiere Consignment the perfect solution. Also, don’t forget our online store powered by eBay, where we have successfully sold many thousands of items for our customers.

The Town Framery & Gifts Spotlight on Fine Art Crafts

AnnBay Designs

In our continuing effort to support local artisans, now featured at The Town Framery & Gifts are wood crafted works by AnnBay Designs. Annie Abraham and Bailey Cate, best friends from Knoxville, formed AnnBay in 2015. Annie got her start in wood crafting when she began using her grandfather’s power tools from his shop to build kitchen tables, benches, and more. Bailey then used the extra wood to craft hand-painted wood signs. Combining their talents, AnnBay Designs was launched.

The comfort of southern living influences AnnBay’s timeless, hand-crafted furniture to help bring warmth to your home. Whether you are looking to replicate, transform, or create your own custom piece, AnnBay Designs takes great pride in their craftsmanship. They aim to accommodate the needs of their clients and furnish homes at an affordable price. AnnBay Designs will work with you to create a personal design that incorporates the aspects you love for that must-have furniture piece or home décor item. The staff at the shop will be happy to assist with in-store items or set up an appointment for you to discuss your custom furniture vision with Annie or Bailey.

When the holidays roll around throughout the year, look for AnnBay whimsical signs and accents just right for the season.

You can find that one-of-a-kind AnnBay Designs furniture piece, sign, or home décor accent perfect for you at The Town Framery & Gifts. Shop small, shop local!

Huge Moving Sale at Bobby Todd in Historic Downtown Sweetwater

Well-known Sweetwater gift and antique shop, Bobby Todd Antiques, is relocating to its sister store, UPSTAIRS, located at 4514 Old Kingston Pike in Knoxville.

As a result of the upcoming move, all merchandise at Bobby Todd Antiques is 50% to 70% off original prices.  These will be unprecedented and significant markdowns.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy antiques, furniture, art, lamps, pillows, gifts, and accessories at a greatly reduced price.

Inventory will constantly be added to the sales floor as we clearance store fixtures, displays, holiday décor, and much, much more.  The sale will continue through July.

At the conclusion of the sale, Bobby Todd will open as a “Pop-Up” shop at the Knoxville location and fully transform to Bobby Todd for the opening of the much anticipated Bobby Todd Christmas Open House in October.

Bobby and Todd are excited about this new chapter, as it will allow them to focus on their original mission statement of making their store an extension of their own home, where customers can find inspiration for their homes. Bringing Bobby Todd to Knoxville in one of the most prominent and convenient locations is a great way to reach more people and make a bigger impact on the lives of their customers.

The location at 4514 Old Kingston Pike is the former home of the iconic “Up and Down Service Station” in the heart of the Bearden district at the intersection of Kingston Pike and Lyons View Pike.  The lower level will continue to serve as the full service interior design center of the award-winning interior design firm, Todd Richesin Interiors.

elle Boutique’s 10th Anniversary Celebration

It’s hard to believe that elle Boutique is celebrating its 10th anniversary. What’s most encouraging to us is the knowledge that you, our Knoxville community, have been SO very supportive, and for that we thank you… a million times thank you! While we’ve had tons of fun during the past decade, there have also been countless late nights by the staff that have taken place in order to have our little store running for you, and we can’t thank you enough for all of your support and encouragement.

We’d like to mark our 10th anniversary by inviting you to celebrate with us on Friday, May 5th, from 10 am to 6 pm. We know many boutiques (including us) throw the usual sip and shop sale, but we really want to make you feel appreciated for these 10 years. We’ll be offering a lot of smiles, laughs, and good conversations with a side of snacks, drinks, 25-75% off sale racks, and some ridiculously good giveaways, because we appreciate you so much!

Here are a few staff favorites to stock up on during our sale: Denim (because we have the best, that’ll last for years, and it’ll be a steal of a deal), Melody Vintage Jewelry (because it never goes on sale, and her pieces are amazing), Mother’s Day gifts from our other jewelry lines and amazing skin care products, Eberjey swimsuits and coverups (so you can enter summer in style), and a good causal day dress you’ll wear in the summer months ahead.

We hope you feel in your shopping experience what is most important to us at elle. We don’t simply exist just to provide you with the “latest trends” or “coolest new fad.” We consider each of you individually, your unique style, things you’ve asked for, and how we can make you feel your best. We’re committed to offering you the highest quality clothing brands at reasonable prices where your dollars can be confidently spent. And, most of all, our goal is to provide you with the highest level of customer service possible to show our true appreciation for giving us a chance to not just hang in your closet, but to also be your friend. Thank you for believing in us, and we look forward to hopefully many more years with all of you! See you on May 5th!

The Best of Both Worlds: CH Interiors & Gifts and Knox Graphics & Designs

By Jesse C. Boling

This month I’m excited to announce the launch of a brand new companion business to CH Interiors & Gifts called Knox Graphics & Designs. Both family owned businesses will share the same retail space at 12556 Kingston Pike in Farragut.

While most people will associate me with our family owned and operated business, CH Interiors & Gifts, most of you are unaware that I’m a graphic designer and previously owned an area graphic design business. With a strong desire to pursue my passion for graphic design and to continue to offer the unique home décor items and gifts that CH Interiors & Gifts has become so well known for, I’ve decided to pursue both opportunities.


This Valentine’s month at CH Interiors & Gifts, you’ll discover our exciting new lines of beautiful spring décor that will be arriving each week. We’ve also just returned from market, so expect to see some new décor and gift lines, including some savory new gourmet food items. And yes, we’ll continue to feature our ever-popular Raspberry Jalapeño Jam. To date, we have sold a record breaking 10,000+ jars. Other items featured include primitives, colonial, folk art, Americana furniture, quilts and linens, rugs, candles, cards, florals, custom wood signs, jewelry, scarves, lotion, gift baskets, and more.


At the newly launched Knox Graphics & Designs, you’ll discover everything from signs and banners to t-shirts. If you’re looking to make your business stand out in the crowd, we can help with signs, banners, vehicle wraps, vehicle graphics, marine graphics, window decals, t-shirts, embroidery, and more. Knox Graphics & Designs can help you design, create, install, and maintain all of your business’ graphics, as well as create logos, web designs, business cards, brochures, and just about any marketing materials you can imagine.

Whether for your home or your office, you can now enjoy the best of both worlds with our companion companies, CH Interiors & Gifts and Knox Graphics & Designs.
