“Fun to look around before dinner”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

We were staying in Walterboro overnight on our way to Charleston NC. We arrived about 3 pm and had read about this place on Trip Advisor. So many interesting crafts for sale. The buildings were from pre civil war times and we found them interesting. To keep husbands occupied while the woman looked around they had free wifi. We had a fun hour just looking around and shopping before checking into hotel. We wanted to see the doll museum that afternoon but it was closed. So make sure you call ahead to be sure they are open. My husband drives 10-12 hours a day so I would never have been able to stop and see this so I was glad I was traveling with other women and got to see it.

“Well Worth the Trip”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Located a bit off the beaten path in Downtown Walterboro, the SC Artisans Center is a great little place full of truly unique, one of a kind pieces. From ceramics and jewelry to paintings and sweet grass baskets, there is something here for everyone. The only thing you will NOT find is the "Made in China" label.

As someone else mentioned, the prices are not cheap but the quality is much higher than anything you will find in a tourist shop. And again, nothing here is made in China.

“Great stuff”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

There are some really good and affordable pieces at the Artisans Centre will free tea and coffee whilst you peruse the stock. Prices are at all levels and you will be certain to come away with an item to treasure. Some pieces look great from any way around, is it a horse or a frog? Go there and solve the riddle.

“Not Worth the Trip”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We had visited this center many years ago and enjoyed it, but on this visit we were disappointed in what we found. Most of the artisans crafts were VERY over-priced, in our opinion, and just run-of-the-mill; not much imagination and handicrafts. We will not be going back.

“Beautiful local art and functional finds!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The building and grounds are exhibit one for art lovers, there is a wide variety in price, medium, and quality of items from novelty to master works made in South Carolina. The site is adjacent to downtown and the Colleton Museum and Farmer's Market and it is a comfortable site to browse, buy gifts, or unique decorations for your home.
