Like I promised, here are a BUNCH of pictures of THE DEPOT at Gibson Mill (better late than never!). I hope you enjoy them. Listen, if you haven't been out to see us, you gotta come!! Seriously, the building itself is enough to drool over...but then when you add all the awesome finds in it....its just good. You can definitely make a day out of it. When we open our next phase (30,000 square feet for a design center and 20,000 more for dealers), you really will need a day to walk it! When its all said and done, we will have right under 100,000 square feet of unique items for your home. The architecture. The ambiance. The history. The blessed trains that go by every 7 minutes. The creaking hardwood floors. The warm welcome. The definition of a antique mall.....we've got it all. We're working on getting some old pictures of the workers in the mill. I love talking about the mill. Last week, a man came in who was 91 years old. He worked in that mill for 50+ years. He actually installed the mail shoot that is still there to this day. I enjoyed talking to him so much! Have I mentioned to ya'll how much I LOVE working there?! I look forward to going to work everyday. Yes, I do get burned out sometimes...but nothing a good long talk with the Lord, a washing from the Word and a good nights sleep won't fix :) I am still not completely satisfied with my booth yet.....but I'm getting there. Ok, I've said enough. I'm going to shut up now and let you enjoy looking at pictures!
I love the old war memorabilia.
Look at the windows! Most of them are original...just like back in the day. My favorite part of the building....the chippy painted brick walls. Fabulous, to summarize.
That's all the pictures for today. If you are interested in renting space, like I have said before, it is $1 a square foot with 10% commission. That's it. No lease. We are renting spaces in our next phase, which is scheduled to open for vendors to move in March 1st. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or give us a call - 704.787.9351.
We got hit hard with snow last night here in the South....but believe it or not, its almost all gone!
I hope you enjoy this. Pictures do not do it justice!
May you have a blessed, peaceful Valentines weekend....and may you be refreshed in being loved by the ultimate Lover of your heart. Even if you don't feel like it. Even if you have never heard it --- please believe me when I tell you this : you are LOVED and ADORED by Jesus today. And He will always love you with every beat of His heart and with every fiber of His being...just the way you are, right now. You don't need to "clean up" for Him. He likes you running to Him covered in dirt! He enjoys cleaning you up...picking you up in His arms and loving on you...just like a good Daddy does. Trust me, you can't get a better Valentine than Him!
Until next time.....good night everyone.
"I've never quit loving you, and I NEVER will." Love, Jesus. (Jeremiah 31:3 the message.)
