Whew! It has been a week… I don’t know where all the time goes in December?? I never feel so busy in January. The last place I wanted to high light is the Piedmont Craftsmen: Craft Shop. Never been? You are missing out on one of our local treasures. The first time I went it was actually at Christmastime for the Junior League’s Christmas Party. I remember oohing and aahing around the whole shop. From the jewelry to the clay sculptures and everything in between it is a mecca for local artistry and absolutely one of a kind gifts.
Complete disclosure, I had a tough time getting there this week because I was always in a rush. I went by again tonight (Thursday) after it had closed but I will get there again this weekend. My mother-in-law is in need of a special gift.
