I have been to the Arts and Crafts Community a few times before but hadn't stopped here until last week and I am so glad I did. This is a wonderful place! It is located at 623 Glades Rd and it's just past the Morning Mist Village complex, about a third of the way through the loop. You can watch pottery being made there. The finished pottery is just beautiful and they have many different things to choose from to purchase .....vases, , pitchers, candle holders, mugs, plates, etc. It's definitely worth a stop while driving through the Arts and Crafts community. The staff was also very friendly.

This place was not what we expected. Maybe not our taste even I dont know. We love shopping in little stores ecspecially when its locals, but the price on majority of this stuff was outragious plus the fact that it is all spread out and not really in a community but spread out amoung an area is even worse.

My husband and I love this area. We especially like using the trolley system to get around the Arts and Crafts loop. You can park your vehicle and then get on and off the trolley as you please.

Set aside several hours and be prepared for stopping at lots of interesting shopping areas, hopping in and out of your car and looking into many cute shops during your drive along this shopping loop. Be sure to look for the official logo/poster and number in the window of the shops that are official members of the community--they guarantee that the majority of their merchandise is made locally.

Spend a couple hours or a full day at this wonderful arts and crafts community. My wife and I have been to many communities around the country, and this one is our favorite! Individually, some of the shops are great and some are just average. But taken as a whole, and with the pretty scenery around it, this community is a must see. (note though that kids will probably be bored here.....)
