If you shop here, you are supporting an area artist. The Folk Art Center is part of the Southern Highlands Craft Guild which adds only a few artists from Southern Appalachian counties to its membership each year. It's not all North Carolina, but neither is Southern Appalachia. The jewelry selection is particularly strong, but you'll find pottery, woodturning, weaving, quilting and more as well. Don't forget to check the gallery upstairs as well. There are always exhibits of member work and they change regularly. I did most of my Christmas shopping here and at New Morning Gallery last year and it's so much more pleasant than going to the mall.
