New Life

The long, cold winter is behind us. Signs of spring are everywhere -- neighbors in t-shirts, visitors strolling down the beach, children on bicycles, shops & restaurants opening for the season, out-of-state cars on the ferries, and, of course, daffodils blooming at Village Craftsmen.

Village Craftsmen will reopen for 2010 sometime this weekend. Be sure to stop by soon!

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of early twentieth century itinerant salesmen, entertainers, and preachers who found their way to the island. You can read it here.
