About
Instant Karma has been a part of the Asheville community for over 20 years, being known as the "one-stop-hippie-shop". We are a fun hippie store that carries over 120 tapestries (including 3-D & glow-in-the-dark), unique men and women's apparel, jewelry, festival wear, spiritual gifts & banners, patches and T-shirts. Featured are items made by talented local artists such as blown glass, wood carvings, jewelry, tie-dyes, beeswax candles and more. Don't miss out on the funny buttons, stickers, magnets and postcards. You can also find some Asheville souvenirs for friends and family. We also offer spiritual and wellness services like Astrology, Tarot readings, Reiki, Energy healing and Intuitive Channeling. If you're in town on vacation or on an event, book a private or group session, or check our FB events tab for our Healers/Readers schedule.

Very cute store with lots of Ty dye to pick from. The employees are extremely friendly and easy to talk with. Welcoming you as soon as you walk into the store. This was my 2nd time visiting Ashevilles Instant Karma store and it never disappoints. I love looking at all their stuff.

First stop to downtown Asheville for our shopping trip. (Because it was open at 10am) And quite a few stores don't open till 11. And we are old hippies, lol. The staff (Kelly) was very personable, knowledgeable and very nice! We talked and looked, and of course purchased a few things too! Now that we know were it's located, we will go back again!

Very helpful while I tested multiple crystal bowls before buying one. Young man was very patient with me. I always look for these types of shops while I'm on vacation. Great assortment of candles and incense. A good assortment of miscellaneous items I need for the craft. I'll definitely be back.

Stopped in this West Asheville location after breakfast while on vacation. Loved the variety and unique things in the store. Had tshirts made by the very friendly and helpful clerk who may have been the owner? Either way, very nice guy. Check it out!

Went in there twice while visiting Asheville. Many unique items, and the incense and oils make the store smell so good. Very friendly staff.
