During our travels, which took us through Kentucky, we stopped in Hindman, a small town near the Eastern side of the state in the Appalachian Mountains. It was after 6, but a sign said Appalachian Artisan Center and maybe we could find some unique trinket to bring home.
As we pulled into town, it was deserted with a spattering of traffic here and there. It was dinner time and all the shops were closed as everyone had gone to their home in the hills.
We drove about a half a mile and saw a shop with dulcimers in the window and the lights were on. After finding a place to turn around we went back and parked across the street.
The sign on the door said, “Appalachian Artisan Center Wood Shop, Open to the Public“. So we went in.
