My parents are in town, so we decided to take a little shopping trip to The Depot at Gibson Mill in Concord, NC. I’ve heard about it for a while, but have never found time to go. But, since we had a three kid to three adult ratio (while the older ones were in school), we decided to pack snacks and bottles and give it a try.
This place is huge. It goes on and on and on. . . (Over 88,000 square feet!) My heart started racing a little when we got there at the prospect of looking through this much stuff :) I actually went with a mental shopping list—although I didn’t find any it. So, I just took pictures of things that caught my eye along the way.
Pretty ferns in galvanized tubs.
Lot of great mirrors.
I thought this might be a fun storage piece for the boys’ bathroom, but it was out of my price range. (Overall, I thought the prices were pretty good.)
These big cow canvases were only around $45.
There’s something about this I liked. Maybe for a wall on our patio?
This pagoda mirror would be great in a bright color hanging in a powder room.
Lots of fabric remnants. Love the one in the bottom of the picture.
And, this. But, I have nowhere to put it. . .
Painted drawers. Cute bookshelf storage.
I’m always on the lookout for art.
Just kidding. I wanted to see if you’re still paying attention.
I could’ve spent more time looking through these colorful dishes. . .
But, someone had almost reached her limit.
Loved this chair. Kind of kicking myself for not getting it. $45!
(In her defense, we were there for three hours.)
We made it out just before this bird attacked my mom’s head.
All of this, and I left with a plant.
I’d consider this more of a scouting trip, but I plan to go back—solo.
When you shop for treasure, do you shop with a list—or with an open mind?
