I have lived in Fancy Gap for a while. Some business owners here are wonderful people but most are not native from here, so they want to turn Fancy Gap into tourist place. They knew what Fancy Gap was when they opened there stores. So now that business is down they want CHANGE! They want to put Fancy Gap on the map. Sorry we already were, known for quite back woods living, step back in time when things were better than the fast pace life. A craft show in the summer, Christmas in Fancy Gap, the porch pickin. How many people came out to support this. VERY FEW!! So leave Fancy Gap the way it was!
