Village Craftsmen

Village Craftsmen is open for the season beginning today at 10 am. When you are on the island be sure to take a leisurely stroll down historic Howard Street. Notice the centuries-old cottages, the majestic live oaks, the water cisterns from a different era, and the small family cemeteries (5 generations of Village Craftsmen's owner, Philip Howard, are buried directly across the sandy lane).

The friendly folks at Village Craftsmen will be waiting to welcome you to the island and to our quiet and secluded area of the village. Don't hesitate to sit for a spell on our porch, and enjoy the tranquility of island life.

While browsing inside our gallery, you will discover an eclectic assortment of local, regional, and other American made handcrafts, including pottery, stained glass, wood carvings, jewelry, metalcraft, and much more. Below are just a few samples of our quality handcrafts.
