Please Note: The direct links given for the Marketplace gourd art will work if you are using the old version of Facebook, but might now work if you did the upgrade Facebook has been pushing out in the last few weeks. We have sent Facebook multiple texts to try to get the problem fixed but so far there seems to be no way to offer a direct link to an individual post, just a link to the Marketplace Group. Most people feel this is fine since it is fairly easy to find the art pieces we feature here from the main page of the Gourd Art Marketplace.

"I have always been pleased with my Welburn orders. I recently ordered the ornament gourds in two different sizes. I had not ordered them before and was happy with them. I have painted six of them and hope to paint more before Christmas. Welburn is my go to for my gourd supplies. Thank you." -Pam Price Reffitt


"I just want to thank everyone down at the Welburn Farm for all your hard work... with the growing, the turning, the harvesting, the cleaning, the packing of orders, the customer service... and so on! Creating gourd art has changed my life and enhanced it in so many ways. Thank you for the work you do, so that artists can have such a wonderful “canvas” to work with! I’ve been a loyal customer since around 2000 and will continue to be. (PS. I love the ornaments!) Happy Holidays to you all!" -Diann
