Support Craft Expo Artists

Remember our Craft Expo artists as you continue to shop this year! Due to severe weather, we had to cut short our Craft Expo event this year (the first time in 66 years!). While we were all disappointed, a cancellation like this hits the participating artists particularly hard. We encourage you to look for them online, visit them at other craft shows and continue to support their work. Link HERE to all of the artists who participated in Guilford Craft Expo 2023.



What’s New in The Shop

New Jewelry Line Repurposes Fast Fashion Materials
