Large signs along Interstate 75 indicated the existence of the Kentucky Arts and Crafts Center at the northern Berea exit. I wasn’t prepared for something quite so wonderful. It is a huge place with hundreds of artifacts in a great variety of styles. Being a craftsman myself I love such exhibits, finding them very inspirational in their imagination. The small... More

A lovely place to stop and see different types of art - from woodcraft and metalwork to pottery and jewelry. Also a touch of literature and fiber art. Sims extremely lovely items and some slightly bizarre and whimsical. Take your wallet prices are rather high.

Located two miles from historic downtown Berea, the Center can be accessed directly from downtown or from I-75. Parking and restroom facilities are adequate. A restaurant... More

We went here because we were attending a show at Renfro Valley. It is a wonderful place to shop for gifts. Things are handmade and some are very unique.

We stopped in here on our road trip and in about an hour, I got a lot of Christmas shopping done. I am told that if you shop in town you can get better deals but it is pretty convenient having everything in one spot. I will always stop here when in town.
