Shops and Fairs

Continuing the tradition of accessible markets, there are four operating shops of the Southern Highland Craft Guild in addition to the bi-annual Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands. The shops are located in North Carolina, Asheville and Blowing Rock, with a range of handmade originals from Guild members. Each shop is distinct in its own charm, inviting you to experience the craftsmanship at its most raw form. Perhaps it is a piece of salt-fired pottery or woven blanket, we guarantee that each work is made in America by juried artisans.
