5 quick detours to take on your next road trip

Walking into Tamarack (1 Tamarack Park, Beckley, W.Va.; 304-256-6843, tamarackwv.com) is like stepping right into Etsy’s homepage. For 20 years, this enormous star-shaped structure has housed a year-round crafts fair for some of West Virginia’s finest artisans. “We look for these little pockets in the state where you may not go and find people hiding out making art,” says Norma Acord, Tamarack’s creative coordinator. Tamarack also houses artist studios, where you can catch the resident glassblower and mixed media artists in action, and a dining area whose dishes incorporate ingredients sold on the retail floor. Acord says plenty of visitors return to Tamarack year after year. “Because we bring in 50-100 new artists each year, the stuff you see this week might not be here by next year.” That’s great incentive to grab as many pieces of handmade jewelry, clothes, furniture and other trinkets as you can cram in your car.
