Welcome to Wilsons Gourds and More. We are a home based business from Kell, IL which we started in 2002 growing gourds and produce and have developed it more in 2003 with handmade functional gourd art, produce, and crafts which we sell at farmers markets such as Belleville and Salem, IL and various fairs, festivals, and events around Illinois to the public to enjoy. We have started making succulent planters and lots of other unique gourd items. We are currently selling online and from home due to the virus. Contact us if interested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Activities are always present with our gourd business. Folks may find us at historical heritage fairs talking about the uses and history of gourds, garden events inside the mall where we also do seminars and workshops, at farmers markets with our decorative and dried gourds, or at art festivals and fairs with our unique and unusual gourd art pieces throughout the Southern Illinois region.
Wilsons’ Gourds are proud members of American Gourd Society.
