This is a go to for tourist and locals. Local, handmade art at a reasonable price. It is lovely to be able to get a artist biography with each piece. Make sure you check their hours before you visit.

Showcases work by local & regional artisans: beautiful jewelry, pottery, blown glass, textiles, woodwork and much more. The owners couldn't be nicer- very helpful whether you are just browsing or looking for something particular. Hands down this is my go-to spot for gifts in Sylva!
