Village Craftsmen opened for the 2018 season on Thursday of last week.

Desiree Ricker & Amy Howard, Mgr.

Amy Howard and her staff have been working diligently during the winter months to add new American handcrafts, construct shelving, paint existing displays, rearrange items, and add more light & color to better highlight our crafts.

Amy, Desiree, and Finley will be at the gallery to welcome you to Ocracoke and Village Craftsmen, so be sure to stroll down Howard Street and pay us a visit whenever you are on the island. We've even added a vintage Victrola (with dozens of 78rpm records) that you can play while browsing the gallery (more about the Victrola in a future post).

We hope to see you soon!

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter, a newspaper article published in 1923 titled "Quaintest Town in America," provides a fascinating glimpse of Ocracoke Island life a century ago. You can read it here: .
