A new shop in North Asheville is giving The Keebler elves competition for the description "uncommonly delicious". Common Ground's mix of locally created, upcycled art and vintage wares makes for a unique shopping experience, one that's different every time you visit.
The shop is environmentally friendly. All goods are either upcycled, i.e, created from materials that might otherwise be headed for the landfill, or are locally consigned. Nothing in the store is imported from outside Western North Carolina or is brand new. This conserves fuel for shipping and reduces the need for manufacture with virgin materials.
Beyond finding something special in this unique, elegantly whimsical shop-from furniture to housewares, jewelry, art, clothing and accessories-you may come away with a few ideas to use at home to reduce, reuse, and recycle. For example, the window valances in the shop were made from reused window screening. No one guesses without a close look.
Every purchase at Common Ground contributes to buying local. Everything in the store was made by, or consigned by, your neighbor or someone who lives here. This strengthens our local economy and keeps our dollars in our own community.
Common Ground invites you to stop by from Thurs-Sat, 10-6. The store is located at 97 Weaverville Rd., a few miles north of Beaver Lake on Bus 25 (Merrimon), just past The Green Outdoors nursery. Or take Exit 23 from 19/23 (Future I-26), go right on the main road, and it's the second building on the right.
Find Common Ground on Facebook, and help spread the word about this great new way to buy local in Asheville.
