Directions from Asheville: Follow I-26/Highway 19/23 for roughly 18 miles toward Mars Hill. Take the Burnsville Exit 9 after Mars Hill (about 3 miles past on the right).
Exit 9 for Burnsville is at the crest of a hill and be mindful because if you miss it you will need to drive about 15 miles before you can exit and turn around.
Follow this road (19E) about 10 miles to Burnsville and then 4 miles past Burnsville. At the light, take the Micaville exit on the right and then another right at the stop sign. (There are actually two exits that go to the same Highway 80 S. If you somehow take the second exit because you don’t see the first–about 1/4 mile further–you will turn left onto Highway 80 S. instead of right).
Follow this road (Highway 80 South) about 9 miles. Carolina Morning Designs is on the right 100 yards after the Hamrick sign and immediately before the Amoco station on the left. The speed limit will slow to 35mph.
You can also take the Blue Ridge Parkway from Asheville. It takes an extra 15 minutes, but it’s well worth it. Just be careful if there is rain or fog likely. Follow the Parkway North past Craggy Gardens and Mount Mitchell State Park. Get off on the Highway 80 Exit. (Turn right off the Parkway then left at the stop sign).
You will be heading down toward Burnsville and Busick. Go about 5 miles until you pass Carolina Hemlocks Campground, then a bridge, then an Amoco station on the right. Carolina Morning Designs is the next building on the left after Amoco. Look for the sign on our building, Carolina Morning!
