There are a full range of lovely items to choose from. What a great, state-supported arts center. We were here for a long while, perusing ceramics, metal work, jewelry, weaving, food items--you name it! We will definitely return any time we are passing through.

I had recently visited a similar artisan center on the North Carolina side of the Smoky Mountains, and was happy to see that it, too, featured a very wide selection of high quality art and crafts. Something for everyone - clothing, jewelry, folk art, soaps...More

A vast selection of extraordinary work by many artists and students make this a must stop. Our only regret is that they don't ship out of the US. On the bright side, that saved us money since we couldn't take much on the plane home.

We visited here while visiting for a family reunion. Everyone enjoyed the art and food. So many different artists work represented here. Wonderful seeing artists at work explaining there trade and skills. The teenager very intrigued. Thanks

We’ve stopped here many times when we are travelling from Florida back to Canada. We just love the place. Each year we make a purchase but if I lived in the area, I’d be there often to buy gifts, home decor, jewellery, fashion accessories, etc....More

There are no outside exhibits. It's all indoors. Only service animals allowed. We left our dog in the car listening to his favorite music with the a/c on so he would comfortable. Best to leave a note inside the window too.

It's a trap. Admission is free but the temptation to buy the art is hard to resist. The art is unique and fairly priced. Food and drink also fairly priced. Great place to stretch your legs.
