Wow, hard to believe my show season is about to begin. While I choose to do only about 10 shows a year, it’s always exciting when the first one comes – it’s like a kick-off to a whole new adventure filled year. So come on out to Cashiers NC – see the sights, the art show, and enjoy yourself. These shows to date have always had a wonderfully diverse group of artisans – pottery, weaving, basketry, folk art, oils, pastels, purses, furniture, blacksmith – and so much more. These are the shows I buy my Christmas presents at – afterall my family already has my stuff so I try to find different art forms to surprise them with.
Here’s something I found on Cashiers NC for you to read if you are unfamiliar with Cashiers, NC – all of the areas around my town of Brevard, are wonderul to visit, More to follow on Scenic 276 in Transylvania County- an exciting highway of art, eats, b&b’s, cabins, antiques, oh what wonder appears here! Check back later in the week for that info. Now for that info on CASHIERS
the following comes directly from their site:
“COMBINE THE DRASTIC granite dropoffs of the Blue Ridge escarpment with more than 80 inches of rain a year and something dramatic is bound to happen. Around the town of Cashiers (pronounced CASH-ers), perched at 3,500 feet on the Eastern Continental Divide, the jackpot shows up in the form of waterfalls—everything from tiny cliffside seeps to 400-foot-plus cataracts that roar into deep gorges. The downtown is little more than a crossroads, the junction of U.S. 64 and North Carolina 107, and a mile or so radius of antique shops, high-end restaurants, and second-home clusters discreetly tucked into the woods.
OUTDOORS: Hikers can go short, on spur trails to waterfall lookouts, or take on longer segments of the Foothills Trail or the Chattooga River Trail. Fly-fishers and kayakers pilgrimage to the Nantahala, Ocoee, and Chattooga rivers. Panthertown Valley, a 6,700-acre wilderness area, is the closest fat-tire-trail web, and the Tsali Recreation Area, a one-and-a-half-hour drive west, is an
off-roader’s dream, with more than 40 miles of epic singletrack. The thousand-foot cliffs of Whiteside Mountain provide the kind of hairy, multipitch, huge-exposure climbs that would almost make you swear someone had trucked the place out from Yosemite.”
