High Point Candle

If you are looking for luxury, handcrafted soy candles made right here in the Triad, you can find them at High Point Candle. Michelle Shreve-Stroud started High Point Candle a few years ago to compensate her Interior Design business when she had to undergo a big surgery.

Since then, High Point Candle has expanded its business to include custom fragrances and candle bar parties where groups can come enjoy wine and make their own candles.

All candles are handmade in her shop at Millis Square on Main Street in High Point.

Blythe Leonard

Blythe Leonard LLC was founded on the immense inconsiderable amount of “Made in the USA” all-leather handbag companies. Blythe was classically trained at Savannah College of Art and Design and knew at an early age that creating and being hands-on with her products is what she loves to do.

There is a great sense of dedication in her soul to the craft as well as a yearning to make beautiful products with the highest quality. The flagship store is posed right next to the workshop to give the customers a sense of it really is “Made Right Here.”

Missions Pottery

Missions Pottery, located on the square in Historic Uptown Lexington, offers pottery by Tommy Davis.  Watch as Tommy spins in the back or learn to spin in one of his classes.

Profits from pottery sales support church mission work around the globe.  This store is an alliance store to Ten Thousand Villages, a non-profit fair trade retailer.

Seagrove Pottery Community

Seagrove is home to the nation’s largest community of working potters—individuals of national and international craft reputations. It’s a pottery lover’s paradise!

Some families here trace their craft bloodlines back through nine generations of potters. More than a mere collection of shops and galleries, Seagrove offers visitors an unprecedented experience—a chance to tour and meet more than 90 working potters in their studios.

Driving Seagrove’s Pottery Highway provides a unique glimpse into rural America. Studios dot the countryside, tucked among barns, cattle fields, and country gas stations.

The Celebration of Seagrove Potters, held annually in November, brings together roughly 70 artisans exhibiting everything from tableware to high-end works of art and offers a chance to shop and view potters in one place at the Historic Luck’s Cannery. The Celebration of Spring, held annually in April, features more than 65 potters and includes a pottery sale, special events, studios tours, and demonstrations.

For the ultimate immersion, stay overnight at Seagrove’s magnificent bed and breakfast inn, Seagrove Stoneware Inn. Voted America’s #1 Town for Craft Lovers!

Goat Stuff by ElyHar Farm

From the owners:
“We started working with goats for our health needs, then the herd grew! Goat milk has many benefits: it’s good for you and your skin will love it. Goat’s milk contains skin minerals like selenium and is loaded with vitamins, particularly vitamin A, the most important vitamin for the skin. Goat’s milk also contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) proven to be both anti-aging and a resource to help dry and sensitive skin.

Homemade cheese, handcrafted soap making, lotions, bath bombs, foot fizzes, and jewelry! All goat-related. HABLAMOS ESPAÑOL: Somos, la Hermosa Isla de Puerto Rico”

Carolina Vintage

Lovingly worn out and beautifully tattered.
Every item in the shop is crafted from vintage, reclaimed, & salvaged materials, and a constantly evolving collection of whatever I happen to have found and rescued on my “junking” journey: shabby, Southern, funky, charming, lovingly worn out, beautifully tattered, & timeless… coming to you from “God’s Country” – the rural countryside of my home state, North Carolina, and my current stomping grounds in rural Southside Virginia. I don’t like shiny. I don’t like new. I don’t like the latest cheap trend, and I don’t go for fads. I believe in saving and treasuring old things, even when they’re past their “glory days”, because as John Keats said – “A thing of beauty is a joy forever”.
