We finally got to visit Black Belt Treasures…it’s another shop that sells items from Alabama artists. I Tivo ‘Alabama at Work’ on APT, and they did a feature on it a few weeks ago (I think I’ve seen it in Southern Living, too). It’s a really nice shop with all kinds of things from clothes for children to pottery and other fine art. Here’s a pic of the inside of the shop:
One of the things we really liked were carved ducks by John Sheffey…it takes him at least four weeks to finish one of his ducks, and they’re priced between $450 and $1500, depending on how elaborate and large they are.
They had a nice selection of books, and Av got a couple. I got this wisteria vine piece: It was in the children’s section as being a canopy bed for baby dolls, but I thought it would be really different as a stand for books (for now). .
