Appalachian Spring originated in Washington, DC in 1968 to offer the community new, unique, quality, useful and beautiful products. The store owners, Paula and David Brooks, searched the Appalachian states, from Maine to Alabama, for skilled artists and craftspeople who best expressed American creativity. Now with five stores in DC and Richmond, Appalachian Spring still carries beautiful, functional handcrafts mostly from the Appalachian States. The company has twice been voted #1 US store for American craft.
Exquisite glass vases, perfume bottles, paperweights, ikebana and more can be found here.
