Ten years ago, Amanda Carroll opened Bead Boutique, the seedling that would eventually blossom into Sage Jewelry Arts. Noticing the need to expand, Amanda moved across the street, expanding the contents of her original 10’x10’ kiosk into a spacious 1,200-square-foot facility. She also hit the road, traveling the country and taking workshops from some of America’s top jewelry instructors. The journey once again awakened Amanda’s desire for expansion. This time, it wasn’t just about space. Amanda had a grander notion: opening her own full-scale jewelry-making academy.

Hence the birth of Sage Jewelry Arts, Amanda's newly revamped studio in which instructors lead jewelry classes for students of all ages and skill levels. Classes touch on subjects ranging from simple stringing and finishing or bails and wire twisting to more advanced jewelry techniques such as trapping your mood in a crystal. The studio also host parties, jewelry-enthusiast clubs, and open-studio time during which students can finish projects. Watched over by displays of work by local artists, the studio’s expert jewelers can also repair or custom-design pieces to clients' specifications.

Since 1868, the lush land at The Hunter Farm has provided for five generations of the Hunter family. A sprawling lineage of sons, daughters, nieces, and nieces' husbands have weathered the seasons on its plot, giving rise to plump crops and healthy livestock. Throughout the year, they throw the barn doors wide to share their bounty with the community. It begins in the spring, when visitors fill buckets with the farm's ripe strawberries, beloved for their unusual sweetness. In the summer, camping kids learn about farm life firsthand as they milk cows, plant crops, and feed tractors. The pumpkin patch is in full swing come fall, inviting harvest-season visitors to trundle along in hay-filled wagons and pick the most spherical gourds they can find. As the days shorten into winter, the farm welcomes the Cox family, who bring with them a stock of freshly cut fraser firs.

Sankey's is the resident restaurant taproom and restaurant of Custom Home Pubs, which means the owners have years of experience building draft beer systems. They extend this knowledge to Sankey's with a rotating roster of 10 North Carolina beers on tap, but also accompany their drinks with a menu of hearty pub-grub. Texas caviar, crispy wings, and a host of burgers and sandwiches are served in a dining room filled with beer-themed artwork, from local labels to impressionist paintings of keg stands.
