WHEELING, W.Va. – Aug. 6, 2021 – The Wheeling Artisan Center Shop, operated by Wheeling Heritage, will open its second location at Oglebay on Monday, August 9. Located at 83 Mansion Drive inside the Carriage House Glass Museum, the store will feature unique, handcrafted artwork and products made by local artisans.
The Artisan Shop’s flagship store is located on the second floor of the Wheeling Artisan Center and has served as a home for creativity and innovation for over two decades by providing a local platform for artists to sell their goods. With a second location at Oglebay, visitors at the resort will have a chance to take a piece of Wheeling home with them.
The shop will offer a curated selection of apparel, art, glass and more, in a variety of price ranges. Given its location in the Carriage House, glass and ceramics are expected to be popular among shoppers. The Artisan Shop will offer such products from Blenko Glass Company, Aaron Anslow, Ron Hinkle Glass, Lambros Pottery and several others.
