Antiquing can sometimes be an all day event. From the labyrinths of displays that weave you through various spaces, to elaborate displays, to sectioned ‘rooms’ each displaying their own vibe. When antiquing, the saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” couldn’t be more true. But if you’re looking for a true, one-of-a-kind shopping experience in North Carolina, you can’t beat Whistle Stop Depot in Franklin.

(Ed. note: some readers have noted that the Whistle Stop Depot has closed. While the old location on 441 is closed, they are still open at the new location: 145 River Road, Franklin NC 28734.)
