Tonight at 8 pm a women's theater group from Yale University will be offering a free improvisation performance at Deepwater Theater. So if you are on the island, be sure to stop by for what should be an exciting and fun evening.

Today is just gorgeous. Bright sun and a mildly cool breeze. We opened for the season today at 10 o'clock, but it's still quiet on Howard Street. I did hear that the island is already booked for this weekend, though. If you are planning a trip to the island anytime soon be sure to have motel reservations!

    Glad to hear things are opening up.
    My family cannot wait to get to the island, even though we only come a couple a times a year we think of Ocracoke as a home away from home.

    I just close my eyes and picture your store's front porch and all the scenery around it. The little hash marks from old storms, your big cat inside meowing up a storm...( How is he? )It's my mini daily vacation from work. I can't wait to get back to the island this summer!!

  3. Unfortunately, we have sad news about Leon our cat. Leon died over a year ago. He lived a good long life at the Village Craftsmen. He was the best shop cat anyone could imagine. He was gentle and easy-going, just as you'd expect for an island resident.
