I love me some junk…and I when I found out there was a place an hour from my house that held 88,000 sq feet of glorious junk I knew I had to go see it for myself. So on a beautiful Saturday a couple of weeks ago I dragged my wonderful husband to The Depot at Gibson Mill in Concord, NC. And I was not disappointed.
Here’s a little bit of info from their website about this wonderful place…
ABOUT THE DEPOT
The Depot is a tourist destination for “Pickers” of antique furniture, household items and mementos from the past. Folks drive in from across the region, and from as far away as New York and Florida, to explore the Depot’s huge 88,000 square feet sales floor.
More than 600 individual dealers stock their booths with one-of-a-kind items.
The Depot at Gibson Mill has quickly become the largest and most popular antique mall in the Southeastern United States.
When you walk up to the entrance you are met with all kinds of beautiful junk.
It’s so welcome and inviting.
If you’re looking for metal letters, this is the place for you. I found one booth with all types of letters. Old, new, metal, rusty, colorful. You name it and they had it.
I managed to find a great old halogen letter that I am going to convert to a marquee letter. And at $15.00 it was a steal!!!
There’s even a “Man Cave” so you can shop til you drop while your hubby sits in the “cave”. And yes, I did peek inside and there were a few husbands siting around.
Each booth was so unique and creative.
I could have spent all day there but my husband could only handle a few hours. Next time I need to take my sisters-in-law and nieces. When all of us get together we can shop all day, have a snack then go back for more. And you won’t have to go far to get a snack or even lunch. Inside this massive building is Ellie’s Diner located inside the “Cotton Room”.
If you ever get to Concord, NC The Depot at Gibson Mill is a must visit.
