This store is funky, fun and creative. From wonderful kids books to unusal furniture it is the store that fully embodies the Asheville attitude!

It is basically a shop that sells candles and a few other things for women. One or two original things but i do mean 1 or 2. The highlight of being in the shop was the music which I must confess was rather good.

I made the effort to see the shop based on Tripadvisor reviews. Not the hidden gem i'd hoped for. Don't go out of your way to see this place.

I also LOVE this store. I would like to own a store JUST like this. Its unique and fun just to walk around in. They have the BEST soy candles. I highly recommend this on your downtown shopping tour.

Oh man, do they have a selection of the unique at this place. Usually it's not a good sign to have a store as a top attraction in a city, but this place would be tops in many towns. The place is deceivingly large, and it uses its space to the max. If you have ever been to Spencer Gifts or Urban Outfitters, this place is similar, except way better. Call it the King of Eclectic stores. The granddaddy of them all. I've been to tons of shops like this - but this one is the most memorable. If you want a gift for someone with a sense of a humor or appreciation of whimsy, this is the best store ever. Not that it'd be a crime to pick up a few things for yourself! You should be walking all around Asheville anyway while you're in town - so make a note to stop here. You won't regret it.

As a local Ashevillian what l like most about the loft is their huge and varied selection that changes often. They pack so much into their store I could really go back the same week and not see things that were there before.

They also currently carry some of my favorite products like the pacifica candles and the soy candles that come in a refillable clay pot. I love their selection of funky accessories and house decor.

They also strike a really good balance between handmade local art and items produced on a larger scale that you wouldn't typically see made by a local artist.

The loft is definitely on my list of top five places I take my out of town guests. I highly recommend giving them a visit!
