Bill Shores Frames & Gallery and Knitting Mill Antiques

Two North Shore is also home to Bill Shores Frames & Gallery, established in 1944 by its namesake sign painter and framer. The iconic shop has enjoyed a remarkable run of more than six decades. Kathy Reed bought the business in 2000 and has filled the gallery with the art of Cherokee and other Native American artisans, in addition to custom-made frames. Next door, a restored turn-of–the century sewing factory has been converted to a gigantic antiques emporium. Knitting Mill Antiques displays the intriguing and varied finds from more than 100 vendors and is well worth a visit.
