Willa’s Shortbread Cookies
They say the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. If this saying holds true, these rich, buttery, melt- in-your-mouth, shortbread cookies will have them head over heels in no time. Willa’s southern traditional recipe has been around for over 30 years, ensuring delightful quality. They are also 100% all natural, handcrafted with the finest ingredients. Swing by for a tin at the Visitors Center today and walk down Gay Street to Cruze Farm while you’re downtown to grab a tall cold glass of milk to accompany your cookies.
Strike a match and set the mood with one of our 865 Candles. With scents ranging from strudel, lemon lavender, sandalwood, whiskey, and many more, you are bound to make an impression with this candle. Hand poured in Knoxville, TN, these soy candles will help orchestrate the perfect candlelit dream.
What expresses romance more than a dozen red roses? A sumptuous bottle of wine for two to share! Give the gift of these specialty wine glasses engraved with the Knoxville Skyline. This is a wonderful reminder of the place you met, the beautiful city you live in, or a nice memory of the recent trip you took. Head over to Downtown Wine and Spirits to grab a bottle and toast to love!
