From one-of-a-kind patchwork bags to walking sticks with compasses hidden in the top to beach-inspired mugs imprinted with shells there was a little bit of everything at this year’s Piccolo Spoleto Craft Show. 

Put on by the Charleston Crafts Cooperative Gallery the show brought artists from all over the South together in Wragg Square (near the Second Presbyterian Church) to sell their works to the many patrons attending the first two weekends of Spoleto Festival USA and the Piccolo Spoleto Festival.  

Syracuse University graduate student Riley Utley grabbed her camera and captured some of the artists and their versatile work at the show.
