| The Southwest Virginia Cultural Center & Marketplace in Abingdon is proud to feature beautiful, handmade gifts from more than 150 local artisans.
Items for sale in each of the galleries have been handcrafted from ‘Round the Mountain members. The items showcase the rich creative heritage of Southwest Virginia and provide the best masterpieces of the region’s artisan network. The store’s inventory ranges from painted gift cards to pottery, quilts, wood items, leather goods, and jewelry.
‘Round the Mountain Board President Ellen Reynolds opened her first business in 1977. Her current business, Beagle Ridge Herb Farm, which specializes in lavender products, has been in operation now for 21 years.
“By purchasing artisan-made products, you transfer the heart that went into the creation of that gift to the recipient,” Reynolds said. “It allows me to continue to create, and it humbles me to know people spend their hard-earned dollar on our products.”
