Village Craftsmen

Spring is definitely in the air. Temperatures have been in the 60s, and the forecast is for low 70s by the weekend. Flowers are blooming all over the village. Neighbors are out riding bikes, gardening, walking, and visiting friends. And visitors are returning to the island.

And...Village Craftsmen is open for the 2011 season!

Our spring hours (until Easter) are 10 am - 5 pm, Tuesday - Saturday, and 10 am - 2 pm, Sunday. Closed Monday.

If you are on the island please stop by and say hello. As usual, we are adding new merchandise for the coming season. Come in and take a look. We'd love to see you.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of a 1911 wedding on Portsmouth Island. You can read it here:

    Look at this link:

    It is a live eagle cam at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens.
    Three eggs were laid February 3, 6, and 9. First hatched 3/13, sevond 3/15. Still waiting on third.
    earlier today I noticed that the Ocracoke fourth graders are having a fund raiser in support of the eagles and keeping the camera up and running.

    It is most interesting.
