“Big, Neat Stuff, Very DIRTY”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Had lots of good stuff if you could get through the dirt covering everything. Leaky roof with buckets sitting around which is not really safe.

“What happened to this place?!!!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We've always looked forward to our trips to the Tobacco barn, because it was a great place to find bargains, but no longer. The prices were in line with high-end retail shops. The difference...IT'S A BARN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! The treasures inside are not kept in a climate controlled store. Most of the items have dust an bits of the barn roof covering them. Can we really be asked to pay top dollar for that?? So disappointed.

“Antiques Galore”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This place is not the cleanest place in town and not air conditioned but if you have time and patience there are many antiques located here. Need to spend a couple hours if you truly love to find that special piece but we found several unusual items. Many dealers and some good buys if you take the time to look. Would highly recommend if you enjoy antiquing.

“Great Place To Shop For Antiques”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We have visited hundreds of antique shops in the past few years and this one rates near the top. BIG place loaded with tons of antiques but as with a lot of shops there was a lot of what we call "junk" but maybe not to someone else. If you are one to look at everything I would allow a couple of hours to go through it. It is somewhat organized but considering the size they do a good job. We'll definitely stop by again the next time we are in the Asheville area.

“Huge Place”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

This is a huge antique shop. When i walked in I said holy crap! This place is really large and you can get lost in here for hours if you shoos to. My husband and i just did a quick walk through as we were not looking for anything in particular. There are a lot of neat things in here but do your research and make sure you know what you are buying. I saw a few eye catching things but when i looked at them and turned them over to look for markings I found "made in taiwan" stickers. Buyers beware.
