Southern Highland Craft Guild Gallery, Asheville NC

Tuesday, April 24, 2007

We only spent a little while in Asheville before leaving to go home, but we managed to do a little shopping - we went to two independent toy shops, Purls Yarn Emporium (which I enjoyed while Av found and bought some things he loved from the Bibby-approved (thanks Bibby!) chocolate shop just up the street), a book shop, and the *best* gallery ever - the Southern Highland Craft Guild Gallery, which is right on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Inside the gallery are museum spaces and a large shopping area:

We got three things there - one is this tiny little cotton wreath that I plan to put in the nursery, made by Carolina Conecrafts:

This is a small wood spirit carving by Johnny A. Hembree that Av plans to hollow out the back of to make it into a mezuzah:

...and this is a cup that's made by Karen Newgard:

I am really in love with this cup - I saw Karen on an episode of HGTV's "That's Clever" when she made a 'carved clothesline teapot' - a little about that episode, and instructions, are here.

We saw lots and lots of things at the gallery that were really wonderful and I can't wait to go back! The next time we are in Asheville we really need to have more time so we can visit the American Folk Gallery...
