Highly recommend visiting Kress, they mostly have interesting, well-priced artwork that changes every few feet you walk. I loved our visit here! And we bought a few pieces too. Staff very helpful and organized. We'll be back for sure!

The Kress Emporium was a fun stop in Asheville. The aisles are wide and the areas have been laid out with room to move and observe the objects. The staff was welcoming and willing to answer any questions.

We always enjoy walking through the Kress Emporium. It offers an interesting selection of artist booths with an array of work that is for sale. The downstairs is a furniture store.

I love Kress Emporium. It has a collection of unique sellers, from glass to ceramics to paintings to jewelry to soap -- too much to mention. In the past, we've bought lovely glass balls that vary in size, and we bought two more this trip....More

The layout of this store is great as you can walk around and almost see mini-galleries of each artists work. From paintings to home decor to clothing to jewelry to stationary - there's something for everyone.
