Support the ARTS!

This weekend  (4/21-4/23) AVA and Chattanooga will host the Four Bridges Arts Festival.  4 Bridges Arts Fesstival was named a 2016 "PRIME 50 Fine Arts Fairs" by Art Fair Sourcebook! We celebrate the fact that Plum Nelly has had many artists featured as well as one year- both the pin & poster artist. We are blessed with a strong art community in Chattanooga  and Plum Nelly is lucky enough to represent many local and regional artists.

Recently we have added to our collection a new potter which is featured above. Dock 6 offers a stunning array of handmade functional as well as decorative pieces and reasonable priced. Stop in the shop and check out their work as well as some beautiful new pieces by local painter, Ann Currey.   To bring spring into your house, grab a candle by locally made Chattanooga Candle Company or The Rustic House. Both candle companies hand pour their candles in small batches for a clean and even burn with intensely wonderful scents. As always, thanks for shopping local and supporting our art's community!
