About Us 

Village Craftsmen was established in August of 1970.  Since that time we have grown slowly while maintaining our sense of purpose and place.  We always enjoy meeting our customers in our thriving retail gallery on Ocracoke Island, but we realize that not everyone can make it out to see us. We hope this web site will aid your search for quality handcrafts. We represent over 300 US craftsmen and craftswomen.
n our retail gallery, as well as on our web site, you will find a wide assortment of fine US handcrafts.  Browse our catalog for convenient on-line shopping.  If you do not find what you are looking for please contact us today.

We have many more items in our retail gallery which is located  in Ocracoke Village. 

Nestled around Silver Lake Harbor, Ocracoke is situated on the southern end of Ocracoke Island which is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
