    Recommendation to guests at our Asheville and Hendersonville NC vacation rental cabins and cottages:  If you happen to be in the town of Hendersonville, NC and would like to visit a wonderful used home furnishings store, I think you’ll be pleased with the many and varied items found at the Old Towne Market.  Thirty (30) different dealers have set up shop in the 16,000 SF building displaying an immense inventory of gorgeous furniture, lamps, rugs, decorator pillows, pottery, Fiesta dinnerware and just about anything you would put in a home.  There’s an assortment of pretty jewelry, unique gift cards, and other delights.  Most items are quality used (along with new and some antiques) but not the dusty antiques that dominate so many antique stores.  I often find here very distinctive and reasonably priced items I use in our Asheville and Hendersonville vacation rental homes.  I am often complimented on the unique items in my vacation cabins and it’s because I’ve been blessed with having such wonderful stores such as the Old Towne Market to shop.

    Be sure to stop by when you’re in the area.  You’ll find the Old Towne Market located at 822 Locust Street, Hendersonville NC 28792, 828-693-0855.  It’s just a block parallel to Asheville Highway (Hwy 25) and a few blocks north of downtown Main Street.  Where North Main Street turns east at Five Points, Locust Street will be the first street on the right.  Go down several blocks and the building is on the left.

     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!
