Take A Tour Of The Depot At Gibson Mill

Good afternoon, my dears.

I found the pictures from my hubby's 35th birthday dinner and thought I'd add them to the beginning of this post.

On the Wednesday, after my hubby's birthday was Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Since my hubby works for a ministry and television network he had the day off of work.

We decided to take a drive through the country, along the winding tree lined roads, to The Depot at Gibson Mill.

It's well known to locals that the set designers for the movie, The Hunger Games, shopped here, as it's the largest antique mall in the South on over 85,000 square feet, and 460 booths.

One of the stalls had a collection of vintage postcards from England, so I looked through and recognized the Holy Trinity Church, perched upon the River Avon in Stratford-Upon-Avon it's where William Shakespeare was buried.

There was also a collection of vintage yearbooks. The ones before the 1950's were intricate and had such delightful portraiture and captions, one of my favorites was Miss Ruth George, "Most Literary".

There was also a store that reminded me of the show, Little House On The Prairie.  

A little blurry, but something I wanted to share was this teacup, cut in half and attached to a nightlight. There was a wall with so many choices, a perfect gift for the tea drinker in your life.

Hope you enjoyed the tour of some of my favorite finds at Gibson Mill. It took us several hours to walk around. We met so many courteous and friendly people, and even an adorable Pomeranian.

I bought a vintage washbowl and jug, an antique blue and white vase which I've planted peace lilies in, and some electric candles that were made to look like they belong in Ma and Pa Ingalls cabin.

Have a blessed day,
