It has been so cold here in Georgia over the last couple of weeks and we have been in hibernation mode. I called the girls earlier this week and said let's get out and let's go junkin'! This is always a good way to cheer ourselves up.
We went to Munroe where there are lots of old Cotton Mills and cotton storage buildings, perfect for housing lots of antiques and "junk".
Our first stop was a place called the Cotton Bin, just off South Broad Street in Old Downtown Munroe.
This was such a lovely place to shop. All of the booths are done so beautifully and all were so different. Here is one of my favorites. Her handmade pillows and things were exquisite.
The old cotton mill buildings are great, but we forgot one important thing for this trip. It was really cold inside those buildings. It is almost impossible to heat them enough to be comfortable. We should have brought heavier jackets and sweaters. Rubbing our hands together to get warm and dashing outside into the sun every now and then helped. We muddled through and had a ball!
Here is my "Junkin' Posse" warming up at lunch. We went to the Butcher Block in town for hot soup and sandwiches. Yum.
I did not buy much yesterday. They had lots of goodies, but not much of what I was looking for. So for $12.00, I shopped, I had lunch and a had great time with the girls! We are already planning our next junkin event. You never know where we will end up!
