In the shop, you will find jewelry, glass, woodwork, quilts, handwoven pieces, felt, marbled silk, pottery, paintings, pastels, photography, homemade goats’ milk soap, handmade cards, and Bellefonte memorabilia and souvenirs…plus much more! Our guests will have exclusive access to art classes taught by local artists.  Participants will take home their artwork.  Classes cost approximately $45-$50 per person and space is limited.  Each weekend in January will feature a different local artist working in completely different mediums.  One weekend will feature jewelry making while another will feature pastels.  The classes will be on Saturday afternoons. You can add on the jewelry class when you make your reservation at the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast.
