Downtown Hendersonville: Eating and Shopping

I enjoy shopping, eating, or just hanging out on Main Street in Hendersonville.

This is Hendersonville's Mast General Store which is my favorite store on Main Street to shop in. Mast General Stores is a small chain store in the area.
These group of store are in what was planned to be a 20-story building, but the Great Depression cause construction to be stopped. These stores are just a block off Main Street on Church Street between Fifth and Fourth Avenues. My church, First Baptist Church of Hendersonville is one block down on Fifth Avenue. I have been told that there is a three-story basement under the Florist Shop.
This is a old bank building which houses a restaurant called Flight and also United States Senator Elizabeth Dole's Hendersonville Office. I have not eaten at Flight yet but I heard the food is good there.
The Gazebo in front of Village Green Antique Mall is where many events on Main Street are centered. Village Green Antique Mall is one of many Antique Shops on Main Street. I like the Village Green Antique Mall because they have a nice collection of books in their book loft.
This is Black Bear Coffee Shop on Main Street. This is the most popular coffee shop in Hendersonville.
This is an Irish themed Pub called Hannah Flanagan's. My mother works here. People called it simply Hannah's when them are talking about the Pub. Their is another Hannah's in Asheville that is owned by someone different then the Hendersonville one but both were started by the same guy.
This is Mike's On Main Street, it is setup like the old soda shops that they had is the Pharmacies back in the 1950's. They serve sandwiches, soda, and ice cream. It is in the old Justice Pharmacy Building.
Tempo Music is where the local school bands and many local musicians get their interments and music supplies. Tempo Music started back in the the 1960's as the record store. The man who opened the store was killed in a triple homicide. A friend took over the store and over time started to sell instruments and stopped sell records.
Black Rose Pub opened last year. It is owned by the same guy who started Hannah Flanagan's. He sold Hannah's several years ago.
