A nice blog posting from one of the stores that carry our pottery. They are located in Biltmore Village and have been a great addition to the area, selling locally hand crafted items and Western North Carolina and Asheville themed apparel.
Giving back to your community and helping a neighbor in need is fun and rewarding. Every year, MANNA holds two annual special events – The Blue Jean Ball, held the first Saturday in June, and Empty Bowls, held in September.
