West Virginia State University Extension Service and Preservation Alliance of West Virginia have joined together to establish a wholesale trade show that provides an exciting new venue for West Virginia artists and food producers, West Virginia Made Trade Show.
The vendors are established businesses making limited edition products. Their work has been juried into the top retail shops galleries and shows in West Virginia. They have been brought together to offer the public a unique show of locally made products not seen on the big wholesale show circuit across the nation.
MountainMade attended the second annual West Virginia Made Trade Show on Friday, September 9. In these photos, Carrie and Rich visit with Connie McColley a jewelry artisan, and Wendy Clark a hand weaver. Also shown is Frank Ceravalo, a landscape photographer.
The Trade Show, held at the Days Hotel and Conference Center at Flatwoods, was open to the wholesale buyer on Friday and the public on Saturday.
Join the trend to “Buy Local” by adding these unique products to your home or inventory.
