When it comes to Asheville’s shopping scene, we love a good treasure hunt — and a good bargain. Our city is home to several fabulous flea markets, cool co-ops, stellar vintage shops, and resale gems. So get in, we’re going shopping.

Asheville Vintage Market, various locations
Join the throngs of vintage enthusiasts exploring racks, shelves, and piles of unique used clothing from vendors all across the Southeast. The market announces event dates and locations through Instagram.
AVL Clothing Swap, various locations
If you’ve got a closet that fills up quickly (us too), then a stop by the clothing swap might be in order. Buy a $30 ticket, drop of your unwanted clothes, then shop the bi-annual shop. Pro tip: The website is a great resource for spots to shop secondhand or to donate.
