Gotta check this out especially on the First Friday's walk on the Downtown Mall. Selection varies monthly. Local artists.

An excellent cooperative with jewelry and home decor made exclusively by local artists. A perfect place to find something to take home from your trip to Charlottesville or the surrounding region. Reasonable prices and friendly staff. Plan ahead, I think it closes at 6pm.

As you wander down the downtown mall be sure to take a few moments to browse through this coop gallery. Works by locals, both artists and crafts. Nice selection of turned bowels and boxes made from local woods. Great gifts for the folks back home with a real local touch.

We enjoy visiting Bounce N Play on rainy days. It's a great place for the kids to release energy! Thu have several bounce houses in a large room, and also a toddler rooms for kids under 3.

I have seldom been as sorry to be "Only Window Shopping" in my life! The Interesting and varied items inside were fascinating. The store was simply darling to view. It had the most original bench I have ever seen outside, and asked for your "Selfies" taken on it. A spot full of originality and fun. I really can't recommend enough... More

Upon my friend's recommendation we went to spend some time at C'Ville Art on East Main Street. So many different shops with arts and crafts to choose from. It was raining a little but we still enjoyed the day and would highly recommend it to all.

An art lovers paradise, staffed by the local artisans themselves. There's a little bit of everything from wearable to decorative arts. Some of my favorites are the mosaics by Virginia Gardner and paintings by Lisa O Woods. I have bought many pieces from shop and enjoy visiting any time I'm downtown.

A cooperative art gallery with a wide variety of items made by area artisans who take turns staffing the place. Was at a birthday luncheon yesterday where one woman had bought perfect gifts for each of three different BD women -- each different and appropriate for the recipient.
