Nestled within the High Country, an array of shops line the streets of Ashe, Avery and Watauga. Most of these shops are small businesses and give the gift of shopping local. Both tourists and locals thrive off of these shops, as well as the businesses themselves. Whether you’re looking for the perfect holiday coat, gift or home decor, shopping local will always be a great option.

In the High Country, each county’s respective Chamber of Commerce and business associations encourage all who walk through their town to shop local and small.
