     Kooky, Funky, Fun, Unexpected are the words that some to mind when I first visited Mona! wearable art (and more) store.  As soon as you see the cheerful wildly painted exterior of Mona’s Cottages, not to mention the brightly painted vintage car outside, you’ll know the whimsical, colorful and eccentric treasures that await you inside!  Everything you can wear on your body…clothes, jewelry, shoes, handbags, accessories….is full of bright color and whimsy.  What you find here is original wearable art….I mean VERY original art! Bring home one-of-a-kind gifts or indulge in something totally unique for yourself!

     Mona, creating another master piece in a small area at the back of the store, greeted us with an offer of fresh popcorn and chatted away about her creative work.  She pointed out the unusual sweaters she stylishly created from recycled clothing.  There is a huge wall of distinctive hand-painted shoes and more wearable art that can be seen in one stroll around the cottage. 

    So, wander around again from room to room to take it all in!   You might call ahead for directions or check a map.  Although the cottages are close to downtown, they are in a vintage neighborhood a few blocks back from Hwy 25 at the south edge of downtown Hendersonville…just past the Fresh Market.  It’s worth finding this out-of-the-way treasure.  It will make you smile!
