“Best Show in this Area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Lots to see, lots to buy!
I love the pottery, the paintings and the silver jewelery. I love the adorandack chairs and the forged iron, the fried peach pies and the bird houses. My grand-daughter loves the kids area and my husband loves the "food court". Also of note: the hanging baskets at the plant sale are 'primo', but you better get there early, before they sell out.
It's big and I always buy lots of stuff!
