The Folk Art Center had very beautiful, handmade objects. It was fun to look but too expensive for me to buy. I don't think it is a must see if you have limited time in the area. The Blueridge Parkway Visitor's Center near by was very nice.

This is like an appalacian art fair. There was a weaver at work, amazing arts and crafts and reasonable prices. Plus a park ranger to help you plan a hike or know what part of the parkway is open. Definitely go here.

The Folk Art Center has a great selection of local crafts--from baskets to pottery to jewelry to weavings to lamps, and more. A great way to support local craftspeople.
