Furches ornaments available downtown


In its fifth year of tradition, local artist John Furches has created an ornament and this year’s features a snow-covered pine tree on the ornaments. This year’s ornament is a plastic-like substance called resin instead of ceramic as in years past. “We did that this year after we had complaints about the ornaments being too heavy for most tree branches and breaking if they hit a solid floor,” said Vicki Roberts of the Downtown Elkin group, which will benefit from the proceeds. Each ornament is $10 and can be purchased downtown at Elk Pharmacy and Elkin Antiques, both on Main Street.
