About Us

Located in Berea, Kentucky, the city recognized worldwide as our states’ Craft’s capitol,  Top Drawer Gallery houses one of the very finest and most unique assortments of hand- crafted collectibles and functional items to be found for sale under one roof in the Appalachian Mountains.   As a business, Top Drawer Gallery is relatively young but already we are enjoying a well-earned reputation for being synonymous with top quality.  Simply put, there are no finer examples of the hundreds of items we have to offer.

       Top Drawer Gallery was Founded in 2003 by eastern Kentucky native Terry D. Fields who has been a respected leader in the regional crafts industry for more than thirty years and is, himself, a well-known and highly regarded wood craftsman. Over the years Terry has developed friendships and business relationships with hundreds of the best folk artists and craftspeople throughout the region and across the nation.  Dozens of them have discovered that Top Drawer Gallery is the ideal venue to merchandise their products.  Top Drawer Gallery selects the best they have to offer.

While more than 80 percent of our collection is produced by Kentucky artists and crafts makers, Top Drawer Gallery also represents a few out-of-state makers of Appalachian-influenced products so unique and of such high quality that we would be remiss not to offer them. 

 In general terms the gallery collection contains a diverse range of hardwood products and furniture, ceramics, glassware, jewelry, decorative folk art, photography/etchings, and hundreds of collectible gift items.  Most of these are one-of-a kind.  

Wood products are selected for both the quality of craftsmanship and the quality of the wood itself.  Almost all our wood products are crafted from the highest grades of native  black walnut, cherry and maple lumber to be found in the Appalachian Region. 



  Wood-Top Drawer offers a range of top-quality, solid-hardwood, traditional Appalachian, Shaker, and early American furniture. Product lines include dining tables and chair sets, rocking chairs, settees, desk and other office furnishings, stand-alone cabinetry and shelving, hickory and seagrass bottomed chairs and benches. If we don't have what you are looking for, we can make arrangements with highly reputable craftsmen and have it custom built for you. We can usually give you a quotation from a rough sketch or picture.

The Gallery offers a wide range of solid hardwood kitchen items including cutting boards, lazy-susans, wine racks, rolling pins, etc.

We also have a variety of quality wood containers suitable for jewelry, small collectibles, desktop utility, etc. Besides being functional, these pieces are unique and decorative works of art. We offer hand carved chess sets, traditional wood toys and other games.

Glass: Top drawer Gallery selects a variety of decorative and functional pieces including collectible trinkets, vases and fine dinnerware. We also offer a large collection of high-strength, durable fused glassware. Fusion glass dates back 4000 years to the Phoenician Empire. The process involves heating, melting and shaping glass at extremely high temperatures. As with ceramics, no two pieces are ever exactly the same but every piece is a creation of unique strength and beauty.
