Toe River Crafts To Jury New Artists
In 1974 a group of craftspeople in the Toe River Valley found they needed an attractive local market for their creativity. They decided to work cooperatively to sell their crafts and establish a setting where neighbors and travelers could see their work displayed. The shop itself was built, in that cooperative spirit, on land owned by the Celo Community. Friends and neighbors pitched in to build, and in August of 1974 Toe River Crafts opened with the work of a few founding members.
Several of the original members are still active in the shop today as a new generation begins to join and energize the shop. We are searching for like minded artisans who are willing to work in the shop 1 day a month, attend a couple of meetings a year, and participate in a working day in the spring to prepare the shop for opening. We are accepting only working members at this. Our working members pay a special rate of 25 % to the shop. Please bring 5 pieces of your work with prices, a bio, and your contact information on April 22 from 9AM to 12PM to be juried. Toe River Crafts is located at 6274 Highway 80S. Call Teresa Onofrio at 828-678-0780 for more information.
