COLLECT Designer Market


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 HuntzAnna JohnsonVinx ApothecaryThe DustworksCarrie George LeatherElizabeth SuzannPoem CrownJeffreyOpie WayState 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
