Newly opened vintage store and tea room, Vintage Moon (46 Commerce St., Asheville, 225-2767) serves up retro and antique decor, art, clothing, accessories and stylish afternoon tea services. What goes with a coconut-flavored infusion and petits fours? According to Vintage Moon creator Gigi Renee, anything from hippie-psychedelic maxi-gowns to somber Jackie-O sheaths. Here, Kate Matthews models the possibilities.
