Village Craftsmen

170 Howard Street, Ocracoke
(252) 928-5541

Walking to Village Craftsmen is almost as much fun as visiting the store. It's at the end of shady, historic Howard Street, about a block from the harbor. This gallery, run by island natives since 1970, features exquisite traditional and contemporary American-made crafts. You'll find pottery, blown glass, stained glass, wooden kitchen items, musical instruments, jewelry, hand-carved birds, CDs featuring local musicians and much more. While you are there, you can also sign up for one of the Ocracoke Ghost and History Walks.
