Arts Under the Oaks brings unique items to Long Beach

Posted: Updated:
LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -

A variety of jewelry, bags, painted wine glasses and baked dishes could be found at Arts Under the Oaks in Long Beach on Sunday.  

Located next to the Harbor View Cafe, vendors of all sorts brought their handmade items to be sold to those looking for something different.  

There were wreaths made of oysters to brightly colored t-shirts and freshly made pecan pie.

All were items that one vendor says can't be found in a department store.  

Kelly Roberts sold jewelry at the event that she says goes beyond offering one-of-a-kind goods.

"It's bringing things back. Bringing people to the community. And that's basically what the concept of this is bringing people to the communities. To build the community up." 

Arts Under the Oaks is located next to Harbor View Café in Long Beach. It's held every third Sunday of the month from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.
