Back in August, I headed up to NC for an awesome weekend with some fun blogger girlfriends to Angela’s beautiful cottage. We went shopping one day in Asheville and I never got around to sharing these pics. They are too fun NOT to share, so better late than never. We hit The Screen Door first and oh, my was it a fun place to browse. All sorts of fun and inspiring old stuff in there, so I hope you enjoy tagging along with us on this shopping excursion.
Just in case you might want to check it out one day too!
The Screen Door was a lot of fun. You could spend hours in here browsing all the fun treasures. A few of them went home with the girls.
Big old chippy corbel.
Pretty beadboard art
Don’t you love this burlap chandelier? I sure did!
How about a funky vintage chair? I even like this fabric.
Coral and iron
The girls shopping.
Cool old bed
Angela checking out the wares.
Now this is chippy to the max. With moss growing all over.
Heidi and Lori check out a basket.
Taking a break
A shop cat. I love when there is a shop cat hanging out. What a pretty guy (or girl!).
Lovely things to look at.
Loved this booth of signs and old beadboard.
Ooooh, how about a starburst beadboard mirror? Someone will DIY this!
Beadboard picture frame.
It’s love for me and these glass fishing floats.
Shannon found some really cool dog paint by numbers that she collects. I’m loving these too! I wish I had kept my old paint by numbers.
Another cool and rustic chandy.
Plenty of old doors.
Heidi and Lori checking out a really old recliner.
Angela and Renae browsing.
Lori brought home this pretty print that was a good deal. I’ll have to find out where she put it.
Lori, Shannon, Angela, and Heidi show off their treasures for the day! Isn’t treasure hunting fun??
Next stop, Tobacco Barn.
Old and rustic things abounded.
Plenty of things to look at here too and it is a giant warehouse full of treasures.
See the magnitude of this place?
Be still my heart, another glass float!
Awww, what a neat old retro aqua table and chairs.
Wow, is this iron horse head a really fun piece.
Such a fun place to browse! I hope I get the chance to go back to Asheville for more shopping and looking at both of these fun places. If you are in the area, be sure to look them up, you’ll have a blast!

I would love to explore both of these treasure filled places. I was in Asheville a few years ago to tour the Biltmore and I hope to return sometime especially now that I know about these great places to shop!

Thank you for making my rainy, cold, Chicago Wednesday so bright! I can’t express the joy you brought as I saw your posting on my blog feed this a.m. Asheville is my hometown and there is no where else like it in the world. Love the Screen Door and the Tob Barn…some of my fave places. I’m even more excited to go “home” at Christmas! Your pictures are gorgeous!

Looks like y’all have a wonderful time. I love places like that. I especially love the retro aqua table and chairs. My grandmother has the exact style table but in an off white/yellow color.
