The Foothills Mercantile Co is an art and gift gallery located in the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. In the tradition of the Appalachian craftsmen of generations past, we
specialize in handmade items. We are well know for our resident artist, William Joseph Jones, our candles, which are poured in art glass made from liquor and wine bottles, and our

The Foothills Mercantile Co is the home of the art of William Joseph
Jones. William was born in St. Louis, with his youth spent in the Ozark

sports, classic cars and simpler times in America. With a career as an
artist that spans over 40 years, he became a state, national, and
international award winning portrait

encompass the traditional as well as modern-age tools. This allows him
to step outside of the boundaries, crossing into a world of unlimited
artistic possibilities. He has combined his skills in photography with
digital illustration and oil paints to become a leading mixed media
