Third generation broom makers, Tammy and David Ogle still practice their craft the way it was handed down. Their shop is located on Glades Road at the "Glades at Powdermill" area in Gatlinburg.

David grows most of his own broom corn, cuts the vines and limbs out in the woods, and carves the handles. Tammy takes the broom after David assembles it and actually sows the tassles together. The end product is as useful and durable as it is decorative.
