  • If you need to get in out of the heat, this is a place to see a wide variety of artisan wares. The prices are relatively reasonable too! 
  • We like it here. There are many different vendors selling quirky and unique jewelry, household items and artwork. There's an entire furniture store in the basement too. There's a second location a couple of doors down that seems to be focusing on smaller items like jewelry.
  • This is a must see on your visit to Ashville. Local Artists and crafts. Parking can be tricky downtown so go early it will be worth your time!
  • Love how the whole store supports local artists! Really fun atmosphere I would recommend to anyone!
  • Very cool local arts at an extremely reasonable price!
  • Kress is one of my favorite shopping destinations in downtown Asheville. They have great shops from local artisans and craftsman. They have mixed media, glass, paintings on canvas, jewelry, pottery and more to choose from. The staff here are also wonderful and know the pieces well.
