The show, which gets its name from a simpler era when folks enjoyed the season with stockings of hard candy and gifts made by hand, will present a selection of arts and crafts from the southern Appalachians. The two-day show features a variety of items from basket weavers, potters, wood carvers, quilters, furniture makers, blacksmiths, glass blowers, doll makers and more. Holiday items available include candles, ornaments, trees, wreaths and peanut brittle.
This year’s featured artist is Debra Parker Romero of Buford, Ga. A sculptor and owner of Old World St. Nicks, Romero specializes in creating an original handmade Santa, elves and other figures and ornaments. Her work is currently on display at the Biltmore House.
Admission is $4 per person, with children under age 12 admitted free. There is no charge for parking.
