A beautiful drive from Asheville, Hot Springs and beyond, Third Thursdays Marshall is a great time to visit our sweet historic town tucked into the Blue Ridge Mountains along the French Broad River. Walk through town as the train rolls by and we open our doors to celebrate art openings, open studios, shopping, and creative happenings with eats and drinks along the way.
Visit ha! for Third Thursdays Marshall as we celebrate our Scandinavian heritage with embroidered vintage wall hangings from Denmark and Sweden, Handcrafted serveware from Finland, new holiday lighting by the h in ha! and decadent Scandinavian treats served up by Walnut Schoolhouse.
On Saturday and Sunday the eleventh annual Marshall Handmade Market takes place on the island, but don't miss the buzz on Main Street too! Take a holiday shopping stroll and swing by ha! for handmade gifts by our favorite artists in jewelry, ceramic, glassware, clothing and more. We'll be joined across the hall by LOOM Imports with a Cozy Mix Pop-Up Lounge. Take a load off after all of that perusing, listen to live music and enjoy eats and treats by local vendors.

And lets raise a toast to the a in ha!, amber m. jensen, for bringing home the Our State Magazine "Made in NC" win with our Classic Patchwork Pack. We can't wait to invite you in!
This month visit ha! as we celebrate the launch of a new addition to the ha! shop textile collection. Designed by amber m. jensen and made entirely by hand of woven wool and waxed canvas - just in time for the season of cozy weather and holiday. What is it, you ask? Shhhhh...Its top secret until the opening!
We are also thrilled to showcase a large scale ceramic installation created by textile and ceramic artist Eleanor Anderson. Over eight feet tall the work is made of hard fired clay yet a clear reflection of her weaving practice and love for hand-drawn line and color.
Finally, our dear friend and baker Brennan Johnson of Walnut Schoolhouse joins us in a celebration of our shared Scandinavian Heritage with decadent Scandinavian pastries and baked goods.
