We just left Asheville and it’s one of my favorite cities that we’ve visited so far. It is beautiful, filled with old brick buildings and lots of trees. There are some areas that felt so tropical to me because of the vines climbing over trees and balconies. We stayed with Elise’s friend who works for Hilton, so we were lucky enough to escape from our tent for two nights because he kindly got us a hotel room. He was a wonderful tour guide and showed us all of his favorite hideouts.
I had a really successful day thrifting on the first day we were there and bought a brown wool swing coat with a fur collar for only $5! (On the subject of fur…I am completely opposed to the fur industry and would never buy new fur. However, I feel bad for all of the poor animals that die and then have their pelts end up in some smelly pile in Goodwill.) A pair of beautiful red sandals also caught my eye along with this dress, so I’m thinking I may have to pass through Asheville again the next time I need to do some thrifting!
