Checking in at Screen Door...

I travel to Asheville a few times a year and even if I just have one free hour, I always love to check in with the antique and home decor shop, Screen Door. Inside, they have 25,000 square feet of space with scrumptiously good finds to peruse.   


My personal favorite vendor (of the 100+ inside) is Susan Chancey of Lost & Foundry. Her section always has such fun, unusual items you'd want in your own home. I especially loved her windowsill herb holder at $52. 

Susan also carries these unique red and white numbered vases ($25) and this wire wine rack I really love, which can be affixed to the wall ($70).

The best part about Screen Door is just how much you have to choose from. Every vendor offers something special, catering to various tastes and interests. 

I particularly loved these unique lamps handmade by local artist, Kim Dryden. ($124) 

This vintage restaurant sign would be amazing in the right cafe and at $345, it's a pretty good deal. 

In this booth I found a bevy of pretty papers that sell for $8 each. Framed or affixed with washi tape, they quickly become cool and interesting artwork. 

I think my favorite find of the day was this collage owl art piece, selling for $300. 

Perhaps the best part about visiting Screen Door is all the inspiration it offers. I'm always learning new ways to display or organize things. Even if you don't buy a thing, you always leave with at least one good idea...

Screen Door is one of my favorites. I personally love the booths in the right corner after you walk inside. I always find something to buy every time i go so it's a bit of a dangerous spot for sure.

I live about 25 miles east of Asheville and love going to this place for many of the same reasons you mention. Your post was a great reminder that I haven't been in awhile and need to go! I'll suggest it to my hubby for this Sunday afternoon! Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed day!

I live in AVL and the Screen Door is wonderful! The city's full of stores similar to it. It's the best!
