Fall Craft Festival planned at The Old Mill

Written by 

A Fall Craft Festival will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9, at the Old Mill 1886 in Cherokee.

Artists from all over the Southeast will gather to demonstrate and sell their handcrafted works. Artists will include wood carvers, blacksmith, stone carver, Pow Wow traders, quilters, gourd and stained glass artists, jewelry designers, Appalachian crafters and authors. The festival will also feature live music and mouthwatering BBQ.

Step into The Old Mill and you step back into an era from the past. You will find a country store chock full with fresh ground cornmeal, preserves, country ham, stone ground grits, chow chow, local honey and cider.

The 1930s room is stocked with handcrafted items from more than 70 Cherokee artists, soy candles, local made soap and china. In the 1886 room, treasure hunters will find antiques and one of a kind items.

Bring your chair and plan to stay awhile.

The Old Mill 1886 is located one mile south of Cherokee at 3082 U.S. 441.

Admission is free.

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
