Nostalgia bathes everything in shades of gold, which is why many financial advisors suggest investing in discarded love letters and fondly remembered bureaus. Outfit homes with a richer past with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of eclectic, gently used goods at Asheville Highway Thrift Store.
The expansive Asheville Highway Thrift Store houses 9,500 square feet of eclectic, lightly worn goods procured through storage auctions, estate sales, and donations. Guests meander through the salvaged treasures, spying gardening accessories and useful camping equipment, such as pocketknives ($5) and fishing rods ($15.99). Antique hand tools ($1–$4) and already broken-in couches ($39) lend homes a vintage character without hiring Nancy Drew to greet guests.
