We are thrilled to collaborate with jewelry artist Laura Wood along with Erin Hawley to launch COLLECT, a curated designer market at our store in the River Arts District, Asheville.
COLLECT features extraordinary gifts for the holidays by regional artists and makers not usually found in Asheville. Participants include Megan Huntz, Anna Johnson, Vinx Apothecary, The Dustworks, Carrie George Leather, Elizabeth Suzann, Poem Crown, Jeffrey, Opie Way, State the Label, and Cicil Home — in addition to jewelry by Laura Wood Studios and Rite of Passage, designed by Giovanni Daina-Palermo.
“Laura, Erin, and I wanted to create an alternative to the ‘pop-up’ or a larger fair — something curated, warm, and festive.”
— Libby O'Bryan, on COLLECT
In addition to gifts, COLLECT will feature food and drink from Crocodile Wine, Roll Up Herbal Bar, Botanist & Barrel, and Nibbly Onigiri.
