‘Made in NC’ showcases local artists


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Brooklyn Arts Center held their annual Made in NC event this weekend.

Dozens of artisans from around the area gathered to display their work and talents. From art to jewelry, to pottery and clothing, shoppers were sure to find a unique purchase.

Artist Laura Saddlemire said the event helps the artists to find new inspiration for their work.

“From an artist standpoint, it’s really nice to hear what customers like and sometimes what they don’t like about what you’re doing,” Saddlemire said. “It’s the feedback that sparks you to think about things in a different way.”

If shopping isn’t your thing, the event also offered various food trucks and even a coffee shop.
