  1. I am inquiring about getting a place to show and sell my turned bowls and vases. Any information would help. I was City Engineer and Public Works Director back in 70’s and easily 80’s. Served on City Council of Lincolnton for three years. I would love to be there to see old friends and meet new ones.
