December Ideas!

Marion hosts one of the state's oldest art events, this year's 33rd Annual Appalachian Potters' Market. A fundraiser for the McDowell Arts Council, you'll find 66 North Carolina potters and their wares inside the McDowell High School gymnasium.  

These one-of-a-kind clay and ceramic objects include decorative pieces, cookware, jewelry, and more.  You'll also find a wide range of prices, something for everyone.  There is a small admission fee.  Click this link for more details.

Spend the rest of your day in downtown Marion's 310 District.  Shop with crafters and artists participating in the Blue Ridge Artisan Show and Sale.  Find them inside the McDowell Arts Council at 50 South Main Street. This show is open through December 24th. 

Visit Shucks Pearls, Flavors on Main, The Vintage Market, Killough's Music and Loan, Bill Griffith Jewelers, Second Chance Furniture, Simply (bakery and more), the Crooked Door Coffee Shop, The Makery, Keeper's Cut Meadery, Mica Town Brewery, and enjoy lunch or dinner at McDowell Local or Burrito Bros., or weekdays at Bruce's Fabulous Foods, and take home Bruce's cheesecake or locally crafted ice cream from Artesana.
