Where I need advice

I want to get some nice trinkets for the womenfolk while I'm down in Knoxville.

What do they do in Knoxville? What are they famous for?

If I was going to Louisville, I would pick up something from the Louisville Slugger bat factory.

If I was going to Nashville, I would get them something from the Grand Ol' Opry.

My sister had a horse farm in Sevier County for a while. Is it big horse country? i.e., Tennessee Walkers?

I'm clueless. You gotta hook me up. I've been hitting Google, but I'm not seeing anything that stands out.

My girls must have trinkets.

Knoxville's web site says they're committed to a transparent government, so something transparent is acceptable.

Asheville NC, Chattanooga TN, Gatlinburg TN, no problem. But Knoxville?
WAIT! Oak Ridge National Lab is right next door! Go to the American Museum of Science and Industry there! Bring back a glow-in-the-dark treat?
Maybe visit Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) while there?

Screw the womenfolk. If ever you find yourself in Louisville be sure to bring back a couple of truckloads of Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale.

University of Tennessee is not the is the Volunteers, and I guarantee you can find a locally made coonskin cap if that's what you want. Knoxville is also kind of the gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains, so there's lots of Smokies stuff to be had. Dolly Parton grew up in the next county over, too...

Jess - "Here Honey, I brought you a jar of air." ...sounds legit.

Brigid - Thanks B. I'll see if I can't stop by there.

Coffey - Sorry, not big UT fans...

MrMacs - That sounds kinda cool.

Andy - I did mention to her that Tennessee is where they make Jack Daniels. I got "the look".

David - I know...I'll get her some beer! :)

missred - Would flowers do?

Leigh - I'm going to check it out. Their store is right around the corner from the hotel.
