Jackson County is home to a good number of Appalachian artisans. For the most part, these craftsmen work out of their homes.

Visitors interested in buying their creations should watch for roadside stands and yard signs advertising an assortment of products such as quilts, hand woven goods, woodcarvings, and dolls.

Jackson County is a haven for collectors who enjoy the adventure of exploring back roads in search of a great buy.
