We would have passed this by if not for our hosts, who had seen it before. It's a venue for many artists to display their work, so there's a variety of media to see. Several artists were there when we visited.

Great place to buy holiday gifts. Hot Shops Open House the first weekend in December is a must. 3 floors of artists and their wares. The first floor has a glass forge. Lots of snacks and beverages for customers on this special weekend.

Hot Shops is filled with dozens of local artist studios. Take a tour and you can see gorgeous, unique sculptures, carvings, paintings, blown glass and more, and very often you'll get to see the artists creating their work. So worth a trip!

Each gallery keeps its own hours. The main entrance is open till about 8pm, later if there is a reception. Not sure of the morning opening but I have been there as early as 10am. Hope that helps.
