‘Round the Mountain supports approximately 200 Southwest Virginia artisans who work daily to create heritage and handmade crafts. Our members range from hobby artisans to commercial operations with brick-and-mortar locations, but each have a deep connection to the Appalachian arts.

Many of these artisans are creating items in patterns, routines, and skill sets that have been handed down from generations. While each artisan story of how they came to their craft may differ, they have a woven history of enriching Southwest Virginia’s culture and contributing to the creative economy.

As you plan to shop this holiday season, consider shopping local and supporting local artisans. Recently, ‘Round the Mountain members have shared their product inventories are an extension of their work, their dreams, and part of themselves. Items purchased from local artisans allow this craft to continue throughout the region.

Our artisan members are uniquely talented, and several find special ways to incorporate their home into their work. Sometimes, you might find reflection from the beautiful natural environment we live in. Others utilize the cultural history of utilitarian goods needed to supply the household then and now. You might also find a signature piece created from the earth right here in Southwest Virginia.

When you shop small in Southwest Virginia, you are investing into the richness of a place etched with authentic beauty that exists also within its people. We hope you will browse our online platform at and in person at our Southwest Virginia Cultural Center & Marketplace, where you can truly experience the embrace of our region.
