Beckley, W.Va. (AP) -- A Florida woman helped West Virginia's artisan showcase reach a milestone.

Vickers received the star treatment when she stopped at Tamarack on Friday en route to a family reunion in Ripley.

Tamarack officials gave the West Virginia native a $250 gift certificate and free dining.

About 500,000 people visit Tamarack annually.

Tamarack is located on the West Virginia Turnpike in Beckley.
