Our Story

Mark and Beth Craft, owners of Crafted in Carolina, retired to Maggie Valley, NC in the fall of 2014. He is a talented woodworker, and she designs jewelry, is a silversmith, and makes Swarovski crystal-encrusted animal skulls.

“After three years of retired life, we both realized we were too young to be retired,” said Beth Craft.

“When my mother passed away in March of 2017, I knew I had to do something to celebrate her life,” she said. “Every ounce of creativity I possess is a direct gift from her.”

The Crafts purchased the log building at 3073 Soco Road in Maggie Valley, NC and proceeded to transform it into the Crafted in Carolina, the premier Local Arts and Crafts Gallery of Haywood County, NC.

“Our primary purpose is to give Western North Carolina artisans a safe and beautiful environment to showcase their work,” said Beth Craft. “After many years of doing local festivals prior to moving here, we realized how much these lovely mountains just draw in creative people. We didn’t have to advertise for artists. … They are abundant here.”

Crafted in Carolina is proud to represent some of the most talented artists of Haywood County, NC. Swing by next time you are in beautiful Maggie Valley, NC.
