The season of the arts and craft show has begun in the mountains. Leisurely autumn weekends are perfect for making time to visit craft shows, and the Town of Highlands hosts one of the region’s best.

Craft items include wood working; fine handcrafted furniture; Christmas wreaths, ornaments, and gifts; woven items; items in stone and clay; paintings; drawings; handcrafted knives; jewelry; candles; scarves and other textiles; hand blown glass; woodworking; pottery; and, so much more. The Christmas items are particularly in demand, with shoppers finding one-of-a-kind creations for their homes.
Splashes of fall colors will be resplendent, with many local gardeners sharing a wide assortment of dried flowers and arrangements, or choose from the large assortment of Japanese Lanterns, dried Hydrangeas, and other dried flowers and herbs sold here and create your own unique creations. You’ll find lots of inspiration here.
