“Huge!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

If you enjoy searching for a new addition to your collection, or just a trip down memory lane, this place has it all. Parking is skimpy.

“A favorite place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I have been here several times and it doesn't disappoint. I always find a treasure or two. Plan to spend and hour or two of looking among the antique and vintage items. It is well worth your time.

“Great way to spend the day treasure hunting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

What a terrific experience! Plan to spend hours walking through this oversized building, up and down rows and rows of antiques and collectibles. Many unique items, both for indoors and out. Vintage items, big furniture, art, and much, much more. We have gone once a month for the last three months, and look forward to going this week to see what new items they have received. We never leave empty-handed.

“NOT IMPRESSED”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

On a recent trip to Asheville, we decided to check out the antique stores. My husband and I love to go antiquing in GA and TN, but NC antiques are totally different. The Tobacco Barn was such a mess the ceiling was dripping from the pouring rains Asheville was experiencing over the 4th of July weekend. Buckets were standing everywhere collecting the rain and spilling over onto the floor forming unsafe puddles everywhere. We were less than impressed. It looked like a huge barn of rusty junk. Someone else might find their treasures here, but we didn't want to sort through the rust and piled up junk to find ours. NC are proud of their antiques and the prices showed it on what we could see without climbing over something else to get to. We will continue to antique in GA and TN but Asheville antiques proved to be a bust for us.

“Hit or miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

As it has lots of different vendors in there there is a large quantity of crap in there. There is some cool stuff but I thought the prices were a bit high.
