Occasionally, local artisans do glass blowing demonstrations on the weekends. Call ahead to find out, and then definitely make time to go and watch if you can. This is such an incredible art form, and what makes it even better is knowing you can then purchase these items after watching them being crafted. I've taken kids to watch also, and the artisans will explain to them in great detail how glass blowing works, etc. The pieces are priced very reasonably, and there's always a huge selection to choose from. They have a great collection of vases, and with a flower shop just a few doors down, you could have a great gift bought quickly.
