Those looking for utilitarian objects will find hand-carved wood pens, baskets, hand-painted floor cloths, metal pot hangers and note cards. For the fashion-forward, hand-made jewelry will be for sale for enhancing your summer wardrobe.
Author/artist Robert Powell will be on hand, too, with his fiction and non-fiction books as well as pen-and-ink drawings. Great American Brass Band Festival poster artist Wayne Daugherty will sign his prints at the Community Arts Center during the Hop.
The route begins at Community Trust Bank, works its way up Main to Third, where West T. Hill Community Theatre offers a feast for the eyes and the ears. The trail then heads back down Main, with a dog-leg to Second and back up Main to end at the warehouse on Perryville Street.
Nichols said it's an interesting route, "one sure to please anyone looking for a good time, and a great way to begin a summer weekend."
