The Funnest Shop on Main

(And Headquarters for All Things Tea)

"Oh, My Stars," "It's another day in Paradise" for those who love inspirational signs and gifts.  Once Upon A Sign is the cutest, funnest shop located at 3rd and Main Street in Historic Downtown Hendersonville, North Carolina.  If "Never confuse hospitality with endurance" is more exciting to you than a slice of chocolate cream pie, this is the place for you.  Eva Ritchey, owner, has a life long love affair with words and is expressing them in her little shop. 

Her signs and framed art range from the humorous to the sentimental and make for a fun afternoon of reading.  Have  something you want to say?  Special orders are available. 

Once Upon A Sign specializes in American made gifts and features:

  • Largest Collection of Children's Wall Décor Signage in Western North Carolina   
  • Framed Art and American Made Teapots
  • Harney & Sons Tea
  • Metropolitan Tea
  • Home of the almost world famous "Get your shine on" (moonshine that is) T Shirt.
  • Mountain Farms Lavender soaps & creams 
    American made Jewelry 
  • American made Wind Chimes
  • Sparkly, Sparkly Wind Spinners and Garden Décor.
