Take a Piece of the Mountain Home – Finding Travel Souvenirs

Travel Souvenirs With Memories

A good many of the people who visit Mountain Made are from out of town. We have seen visitors from as close as just down the road as  Hendersonville or Black Mountain NC, to as far away as Hawaii, Australia, Tibet,  Great Britain and parts of Eastern Europe.

While many drop by just to see what’s available, others are looking for artwork that will fill a special spot in their home.

But others come in the gallery with a mission on their mind. They want to take a piece of the Western North Carolina mountains home with them. Basically they are looking travel souvenirs with memories.
