Appalachian Spring is a locally owned and operated store that sells American Craft from artists and craftsmen who live and work in the Appalachia region of the U.S. The products—which include glassware, wood items, pottery, textiles, and jewelry—are all one of a kind, high quality, and designed for both beauty and function. I have been a loyal customer for several decades now and I have a particular soft spot for the glass art and the jewelry.
The inventory turns over frequently, so every visit means seeing something new. There are several stores located in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, but the Georgetown location is the original store. The store was recently renovated and the space is not only gorgeous but really allows the items to be showcased to their best. On my most recent visit to the store, I was completely mesmerized by the dozens of glass ornaments—the work of 15 different glassblowers that hung in the storefront window.
Appalachian Spring is the perfect place to pick up a unique gift for that special someone.
