Thrifting in Cleveland County

Featured

It doesn’t take much to make me happy.

Literally.

Bargains and sales. $2 purses and $8 jeans. Thrift stores feel like home. Mismatched gadgets and a thousand oddly shaped mugs. You’re guaranteed to find a purple caboodle from the early 90’s and an entire section devoted to VHS tapes. But among all the junk you are certain to find some treasure.

Here are a few of the gems I’ve found – some might be small shops but they all offer big deals. If you’re on a quest for the best bargain in town, don’t pass these up!

Rita Camacho, is originally from Peru and has been living in the United States since 1992. She is a Textile Designer, an art clay senior certificate holder and works at a design studio in Charlotte, NC. She has always been inclined towards crafts, sewing, knitting, crochet and lately jewelry making. The articles of jewelry Rita produces are made of Metal Clay Silver and Copper. Metal Clay is an amazing material made of three ingredients: water, an organic binder and pure silver or copper powder. In its soft state this wondrous material can be textured, shaped and sculpted. On its dry state it becomes hard like plaster and can be carved with a file and carving tools. Once fired on a jeweler’s kiln, the result is a pure silver (99.9%) or pure copper piece of jewelry. Each handcrafted piece is unique. Rita creates texture tiles; apply oxidation, enamels, resin as well as pearls and semiprecious stones. All of these give each piece a special character. Her website is www.adornojewelry.com

5:30pm Moments in Time Opening Reception
Where: The Arts Center, 111 S. Washington St.
Description:
Moments in Time: An exploration of faces and places
https://www.facebook.com/events/518659304915730/
Opening Reception with hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be May 8th, 5:30-7:30pm at the Cleveland County Arts Council. Exhibit Dates: May 8th – June 5th, Mon.- Fri., 9am – 5:30pm This exhibit features two regional artists whose paintings reflect the faces and places of yesterday and today. Historical and current portraits, landscapes and rustic buildings are brought to life through the brush strokes of Thomas Kelly Pauley and Martha Moore. Thomas Kelly Pauley It’s been said that a painting preserves what time destroys. You’ll find time carefully preserved in this collection of paintings by Thomas Kelly Pauley, whose timeless portraits capture the moment, moving easily from the present to the past and beyond. With his one foot in the present, his other is placed firmly in a time of myth and legend on the edge of all memory. Martha Moore Perhaps because Martha grew up on a family farm in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, she has always felt an affinity for nature. Her paintings are primarily landscapes—rivers, mountains, beaches, trees, waterfalls, rocks, flowers, and animals. Martha also specializes in rustic buildings, especially old barns. Her media is watercolor and oil, and paints in a traditional, realistic, detailed style.
