Currituck OBX Spotlight: Tar Heel Trading Co.

North Carolina holds a fine tradition of inspiring native artists and craftspeople. Wherever you travel in our fine state, you may find a local shop or gallery that displays the best and most beautiful art we have to offer. Some crafts are functional, some are simply beautiful and enhance any room of your home. If you love to shop for unique jewelry and carvings, handwoven scarves, or delight in finding an up-cycled treasure, you definitely want to take a day in your Currituck Outer Banks vacation to stop at the Tar Heel Trading Company.

The Tar Heel Trading Company is one the area’s best known and established stores. When Mary Ames opened the store over thirty years ago, she wanted to introduce people to the amazing talent and diversity of North Carolina artisans. Indeed, you’ll find here many delightful gifts and home accessories – fragrant handmade soaps, elegant pottery, and dainty glass art.

If you saw something you liked but couldn’t get it while you were here, no worries! You can order items from Tar Heel’s website to ship home.
