This is an excellent stop while traveling on the BRP or while visiting Asheville. The crafts on display are well priced considering the work involved and all are made in the Appalachians, I.e., no bargain basement imports. On the second level are some beautiful art...More

This shop is off the beaten path in Ashville, but worth stopping by. Small shop, but decent selection of local crafts with reasonable prices. Shop has been in Ashville for about 40 years.
