Cricket’s Nest Craft Shop is located in the heart of Winston-Salem on Country Club Road and is easily accessible from Silas Creek Parkway off Business I 40.
It is a shining example of a small local non-profit business thriving for over 42 years with the unending support of members, loyal customers, volunteers and the sponsorship of the Winston-Salem Recreation and Parks Department.
The Cricket’s Nest is nestled back in the trees in South Fork Park, just in front of South Fork Community Center and across the street from South Fork School. In this hidden gem of Winston-Salem, expect to find a huge variety of hand-turned pottery, floral arrangements, wreaths, home décor of all descriptions, kitchen necessities, baby afghans, doll clothes, turned-wood, and beautiful reasonably priced furniture.
Enjoy a leisurely, pleasant shopping experience away from the hustle and bustle of the mall and choose a gift that is unique and handmade for that special someone on your list.
When you shop at Cricket’s Nest Craft Shop, you support talented, senior adult artisans who live and craft in Forsyth County. And you support the local economy!
