Museum Shop Offers Tantalizing Glimpses of Spring with Shari Corley
Welcome Spring! 

As the dreary days of winter transition to sunny skies and springtime blooms, we also look forward to the transition of new products in our Museum Shop. Our winter wool scarves and handbags are stepping aside for the arrival of soft cotton fabrics and pastel colors of the spring/summer lines by Rising Tide and Maruca.  We also feature the new season’s line of jewelry by Larissa Loden. Loden designs for women who aren’t afraid to express themselves — interested in art and love to dress up. She uses a variety of gemstones in unique cuts and incorporates a wide range of vintage components, resulting in elegance “with an edge.”

For the home we’ll have the adorable felt birdhouses known as, “Wild Woolies.” These unique designs will brighten up any outdoor space and are sized for small backyard birds like chickadees and wrens.  What a fun way to welcome your feathered friends into your backyard or front porch! 

And speaking of birds, don’t miss the always delightful artwork of Charley Harper, featured in note cards, puzzles and beautiful tiles. You’ll also enjoy some of the creations coming from our Pottery Studio as well as from other potters from around the Carolinas. With a range of items from berry bowls and soup mugs to porcelain magnets and bud vases, you’re sure to find something special from this delightful selection.

And you won’t want to forget about the sunny months of summer when we’ll add more unique items in celebration of our exhibit Can’t You Sea? | Ocean Plastic ARTifacts. This unique and thought-provoking exhibition offers a striking look at one of our planet’s most serious environmental problems: plastic pollution in our oceans. We are excited to join this important cause as we learn to live — and shop — plastic-free.
