The prices may be a little higher here than if you found the same goods in the little shops and markets. But there's a lot to choose from and I could have left with 3 suitcases full of beautiful art.

I was looking for a Christmas gift. Had lots of choices. Lots of history also. Good quilts.

The Folk Art Center has good displays of local artisan's crafts in the museum and has an excellent gallery and gift shop with lots of good books, crafts, jewelry, pottery, wooden items, glass, and textiles. It's good to go there when they have a special event so that you can see crafters in action.

A must for local mountain art. You can purchase most everything - they also have a small museum area and often demonstrations.

Right on the Blue Ridge Parkway!
