If you’d like to avoid the fuss and flurry of “Black Friday,” the Craft Village at the Ozark Folk Center State Park will be open Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. with a craft show.
As always, admission is free and 100 percent of sales support the local artists.
“It’s been a challenging year for everyone, but we have been lucky to continue to provide workshop space in the Craft Village for our independent artisans,” said Jeanette Larson, craft director at the Ozark Folk Center State Park.
Shops that will be open include the Village Apothecary; Havencroft Brooms; Widmer’s Jewelry Shop; the Woodsmith, home of hand-carved archery bows; Crossed Arrows Trading Company Leather Works; Turkey Creek Creations Stained Glass; Perry/Munn Pottery; Tom Weir Handmade Knives; Copper Colorists Flame Painted Copper; the Old Time Print Shop; Woodcarving & Whittling; Fiber Arts; and more.
Masks will be required indoors, and the number of people allowed in a shop at a time will be limited due to social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be available.
Entrance to the Craft Village is through the gates below the Administration Building or below the Ozark Highalnds Theater. Parking will be available below, next to the gates.
