March is the time of year when new life springs forth. On Ocracoke camellias and crocuses are blooming. Tulips are poking through the soil, and fresh buds are appearing on shrubs. This is also the season when visitors begin returning to the island and many village stores, shops, and restaurants re-open their doors.
Village Craftsmen opens for the 2012 season this coming Friday at 12 noon. Spring hours will be Tuesday - Saturday 10 am - 5 pm; Sunday 10 am - 2 pm; (closed Monday). Stop by and visit. We continue to follow our 40 year commitment to carry only quality US made handcrafts. We love to see our many local and off-island friends.
Stop by and say hello!
