A real plethora of art, jewelry and more. First Saturday has a lot of great artisans. Found some great stuff. Fair Trade jewelry was particularly nice to find.

About 15 outside booths with artists and eclectic people and 5-7 indoor artist spaces. Jewelry, birdhouses, light catchers, blacksmithing, Native American jewelry, natural soaps,...More

The day we visited it was pouring down rain, so we didn't spend as much time as we would have otherwise. There were a variety of little shops to choose from that were all in walking distance from the parking lot. There is a pottery...More
