Antiquing in Asheville


Another exciting part of the bloggers brunch get together last weekend, was the shopping spree.......of course!  After Penny's delicious meal, all fourteen of us piled into vehicles and headed to Asheville's finest treasure troves.


My favorite is the ScreenDoor where unsual things are always awaiting, also The Tobacco Barn and Oddfellows, both of which were crammed full of antiques, vintage, and stuff from every era and every place around the globe most likely!


The current interest in collecting and displaying religious artifacts such as these shown here was prevalent in several locations.


I also loved these crowns................


..........and in this shot the pair of rusty chandeliers were fabulous also.


Isn't she delightful?  Loved this santo and her beautiful accessories.  The tilt of her head and composure somehow made me feel relaxed and that all was right with the day.............and how could it not have been when so many friends were so lucky to get together and have such a wonderful time.

More images of treasures in the North Carolina mountains coming up soon.
