A Little Shopping in Asheville NC

Just before we arrived in Asheville, CG spotted an "Antiques" sign on the interstate, (snaps for him!)
We exited and found a little shop in a rural area. It appeared to be a multi-dealer mall, but all of the booths looked 'unkempt', (to put it kindly). Prices were mostly 'top end', which surprised me given the environment and lack of presentation.

Our next stop was Sweeten Creek Antiques in Asheville.  It's a large mall and a lot of the spaces were nicely staged. I found a few treasures including a huge lot of well-worn vintage letters & numbers.

The last stop of the day was Screen DoorCan you say "eye candy"?  Over 100 vendors have some of the best industrial, architectural, primitives, mid-century, and garden finds displayed in enticing vignettes.  Some booths have newer items and repros, but it's easy to bypass them and let your eyes settle on the aged beauties.  The rest of the photos are from Screen Door...enjoy!


  1. Looks like you're having a good time and visiting some great shops!! Enjoy!

  2. Is this perfect timing or what. Hubby and I plan on a second visit to the Biltmore and antique shopping is also on my list of to do's. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. Now I could do some shopping at the Screen kind of place!!!


  4. I’m lovin Ashville...what a cool place.

  5. Oh Jan...this looks like so much kind of day!

  6. That first scenario sounds typical of a lot of places around my neck of the woods. Crummy, dirty, messy and expensive. Don't know what they're thinking! Glad your day got better and you found some fab places to shop!
