I really enjoyed walking through the shops and seeing the demonstrations that were going on. I loved the original old print shop and bought several note pads and cards. The copper shop has interesting things as well as all the other shops. Fun!

Lots of walking but a great place to visit. I've been there several times and I enjoy it every time. It's a look back in time to the way life was in the Ozark Mountains. I usually plan half a day. Love this place
