BE SURE TO CHECK OUT ALL THE DETAILS FOR THE LINKY PARTY HERE!
Welcome to the sixteenth Time Travel Thursday linky party at the Brambleberry Cottage.
Are you ready for our next trip back in time and into the future?
Good! Here we go.
I grew up in a textile town in the South.
As a matter of fact, the textile mills–that dotted the landscape throughout the Piedmont region–made North Carolina famous for a season.
Gibson Mills, depicted in the three vintage postcards above, was in a neighboring town to the one I lived in during my childhood.
And while the town where I grew up was actually created around a mill–that was the largest manufacturer of towels in the world, for a time–that mill is not the one I've chosen to focus on.
The mill above, now known as The Depot at Gibson Mills, no longer produces textiles, but it's very much a hub of activity again today.
It has been given new life through the businesses and shops that it now houses.
Boasting over 85,000 square feet and 460 dealer booths, its antique mall and design center has become one of my absolute favorite shopping destinations.
This fun booth–loaded with fantastic primitives and just plain old cool junk–is the space of a friend of mine.
You could spend hours, right here in Tammy's "Refunked Junk" booth!
If you prefer country antiques and collectibles, you'll find them at The Depot, as well.
One of the things that makes this place such a delightful shopping experience is the great care the vendors take to make their spaces so inviting.
Have you seen anything yet you would love to have? ; )
If your style leans more toward newer home decor, you won't be disappointed with the wonderful selection you find here.
Truly, there is something to satisfy everyone's taste at this incredible shopping venue.
But come prepared to spend the entire day, if you really want to see everything!
Sharing all this wonderful vintage goodness @ Suzanne's for Vintage Thingie Thursday.
