It was interesting to see the variety of art and craft items. These are fine quality and the prices reflect it. The food portions are too large, not that great and not cheap. It's a food court, self serve. Clean bathrooms. Friendly staff.

Combination art gallery and craft show. We enjoy seeing all the unique sculptures and carvings. There are signs throughout highlighting the craftsmen who come from all around the state. We try to stop whenever passing through.

The only statewide collection of handmade arts, crafts and cuisine. A really cool place to walk around and see some of West Virginia's best craftsmen. Hold on to your wallets because things are really expensive.
