It seems like months since the girls and I did some serious junkin'. You know we were serious if we decided to drag my 5 year old around with us on Saturday. We put Mom in a wheel chair and we took off for Monroe, GA. We went for the first time to The Old Cotton Mill. It is a huge old mill with approx. 700 vendors. It rocked!! Great prices, very nice displays, etc. Like this one above. It was so sweet the way she had it set up like a child's room.
I really wanted to go home with one of these. They are old sink basins sitting on a home made frame. It would be perfect for a handwashing/paintbrush washing spot in the studio. I have to find a salvage yard around here and try and make one myself.
This place was so big it took us 3.5 hours to get through. The aisles are so large, they have shopping carts to use for browsing. Everything I bought was 10 -20% off. We will definitely be going back.
Just down the road in Monroe is another spot called the Cotton Gin and it is smaller but very nicely done. Very pretty to look at. This is one of the vendors display for some vintage jewelry pieces. We enjoyed lunch at the Butcher Block. I treated everyone to lunch for a whopping $21.00. Yes that was for 5 of us for lunch. Another bargain of the day. I will post some pics of my goodies in a couple of days. Have a great week.
