Vintage "Mineral Map of Spruce Pine Area"
Found this “Mineral Map of Spruce Pine Area” and “Safety Tips for Rockhounds” brochure in a used book I bought. No date on either one, but the safety tips brochure was published by the North Carolina Department of Labor and names T. Avery Nye, Jr. as commissioner. Nye was commissioner from 1975-1977. The map is compliments of D.O. Blevins Sons, Spruce Pine, N.C., Marketers Sinclair Products, and includes this message: “Welcome to the Spruce Pine area. We hope you enjoy your stay with us. For good courteous service stop at your Sinclair Dealer. He will be glad to furnish you with any information you might need.”
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
