Blue Ridge Country - May/June 2018 - 32

BEST MAIN STREET
LOCAL SHOPPING
Our readers had lots of opinions on local shopping. The top
vote-getters, in alphabetical order:
Blowing Rock, North Carolina:

Picturesque Main Street offers an
upscale vibe with stores offering
everything from antiques to oriental
rugs to unique clothing and jewelry to
artisan crafts. Main Street offers an easy
stroll and places to stop and relax, like
the Blowing Rock Memorial Park.
Blue Ridge, Georgia:

The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway is a focal
point in this town, but there's plenty
of shopping to do before (or after)
boarding a train. You'll find items you
may not have seen before-unique
knives, handcrafted jewelry, furniture,
clothing, gourmet kitchen items, rare
books and fine wines.
Boone, North Carolina:

Quaint, charming Abingdon, Virginia, has shopping far beyond
what would be expected for a town its size.

Abingdon, Virginia:

The Barter Theatre draws many to
this historic town. While there, check
out the wide variety of shops and
boutiques. Stroll among 20 blocks
of the downtown historic district.
Antiques and arts are big here, but
you'll also find specialty items like fine
loose teas, collectibles and "junque."

JEANNE M. POWELL OF WYTHEVILLE, VA

Asheville, North Carolina:

Visitors won't find a traditional Main
Street in this eclectic town, but there
are several main drags (Biltmore
Avenue/Broadway, Haywood Street
and Lexington Avenue). Fine art
galleries and handmade craft shops
blend easily here with tattoo parlors
and shops selling incense, crystals,
mouthwatering chocolate and funky
clothes and jewelry. Malaprop's
bookstore has reached national, if not
international, acclaim.

The offerings are a little more
homespun here than the upscale stores
in nearby Blowing Rock (only eight
miles separate the two towns). There's
a lot of outdoor gear at Footsloggers
for enjoying the area's adventure
opportunities, as well as hard candy
and old timey items at Mast General
Store, and shops providing a variety of
fun items geared toward this college
town crowd.
Brevard, North Carolina:

Known as the "Land of Waterfalls,"
Brevard also draws attention with its
quality shops. Whether you have kids
or you're just a kid at heart, O.P. Taylor's
should be on your "must see" list with
6,000 square feet stuffed with toys,
games and all types of fun. Other finds:
outdoor clothing and gear, fine art,
home d├ęcor and gourmet food items.
