Happy Trails, Mariah Wheeler!

Inside the Joyful Jewel

Please join us in wishing Mariah Wheeler a happy retirement. Mariah is the proprietor of the Joyful Jewel in Pittsboro, an arts gallery and retail shop in the heart of downtown Pittsboro that carries and promotes books by local writers and sometimes hosts literary events.

We are grateful for years of their supporting writers from Chatham County and beyond!

Every end is a beginning, and we look forward to seeing what becomes of the space. But in the meantime, we wanted to take a moment to thank Mariah and the Joyful Jewel for being ardent supporters of the literary arts.

“I have so very much loved being proprietor of the Joyful Jewel,” Mariah said in a Facebook post. “I loved knowing each of the artist and sharing their wonderful creations, and loved being a part of Pittsboro in this way. Every day I am amazed at the beauty and excellence that we have created together.”

The Joyful Jewel will continue in its current iteration until the end of August.
