It was an ok place, they had some cool things, prices were ok but a little high for me. There is almost no heat inside, just two or three heaters so don't plan a trip on a cold day. I couldn't get through the whole store because my toes and fingers had gone numb.

Could have spent hours in here. All sorts of treasures. From furniture to collectibles to toys of all kinds. Great fun to see this stuff and be reminded of the past fun.

This place has been highlighted in Southern Living and on the travel channel. We were very disappointed. The warehouse is old and run down, not heated, nor very well lighted. It is more like a low quality flea market than an antique adventure. If you're in the market for real antiques, this is not the place.

The Antique Tobacco Barn is a battered old warehouse with poor parking. Once inside you get lost in the tens of thousands of square feet of flea market like antique stalls. Nothing high-end, just tons of eclectic stuff and furniture. It is fun to wander around for a couple of hours to see what you can discover.

Several of the negative reviews complain about pricing and resold (marked-up) newer merchandise. Okay, so calling this the "Antique Tobacco Barn" may give the impression that it's ALL antiques. But it's really like any antique mall. There are many vendors, each with his/her own area and price tags marked with his/her code. The cashier accepts payment for all of them... More

Great finds if you have the time to browse. This is truly an old tobacco warehouse that has been converted to an antique store. They have doors, mantels, window and the such too (I suspect they are from structures that have either been torn down or redone). This is a great place for treasure hunting, although like most antique stores,... More

The Antique Tobacco Barn is a great location for antique shopping with tons of items to browse. It's easy to find and near the Biltmore Estate and shopping village. Well worth the trip to Asheville if you're shopping for great antiques.

This place is huge and probably has anything you could want. Go with plenty of time to spare, there is so much to see. It's on par with most antique shops.
