We have our 2nd day winner! Congratulations, and thanks to everyone who entered!

Our second day of the 12 Days of Grit-Mas is from our favorite downtown gift shop, Horse and Hero!

The Prize: $50 gift certificate

Whether you're stumped on what to gift your loved ones this holiday season or just want to spread a little cheer for yourself, Horse + Hero (14 Patton Ave.) has the perfect something. Opened by the creators of Asheville's Big Crafty, the shop features handmade, indy art, craft, and design items from local artists and craftspeople. 

If you've ever wandered through the shop, you know how easy it is to get lost in there. The space is filled with goodies that keep with the values and aesthetic of the twice-yearly Big Crafty. From original art to screenprinted tees, jewelry to masks, it's a special spot that highlights the best Western North Carolina has to offer. Give yourself--or your friends and family--a gift that truly gives back to Asheville's arts + crafts community. 

You can see some of Horse and Hero's wonderful wares on their Instagram and Facebook.
