Asheville is a shopping mecca for antique lovers from all over the world. Here
they can stroll through antique shops conveniently grouped in two different
parts of town (Lexington Avenue District and Biltmore Village) or visit often
larger antique “malls” sprinkled throughout the city. Visitors can also attend
auctions that sell “country” items on up to top-of-the-line pieces.
Asheville is also home to the annual
Grove Park Inn
Resort & Spa's Arts & Crafts
Conference and Antique Show held the third weekend in February. This three-day
show is a major stop for serious antique collectors and involves tours,
seminars, discussion groups, books and antiques for sale. Contact the Inn at
