Hundreds of locals perused the booths at Mother Earth News Fair this weekend, purchasing local seeds, soaps, gardening supplies and other wares on the grounds of the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center.
The Southern Highlands Craft Guild at the Civic Center featured over 200 craft booths, demonstrations, and live music and entertainment. Featured crafts included woodworking, printmaking, pottery, ceramics, glass, paintings, quilts, fabrics, hats, clothes, jewelry, and more.
