Sell Products

If you have a packaged product or art that is made in Asheville, Appalachia, North Carolina, and the South and made to be served around the table, we would love to know. We will have a Makers Market sponsored by the Peace Center and will be looking for products to sell at the store. Details on the Market, can you found here.
