Fall... {& a Lil' Spook} at The Depot

Monday, September 28, 2015

Fall is off to a drizzling,wet start in our part of the country.

Faced with having to spend a weekend in the house,
Mr. Ramblings spontaneously proposed that we load up with another couple,
and head to Charlotte, NC, for a few days over this past weekend.

I was all too eager to ditch my plans to organize my closet!  
I'm flexible that way!  ;)

One of my favorite junkin' malls is The Depot at Gibson Mill, in Concord.
The Depot is located 20 miles north of Charlotte.
If I'm traveling anywhere close, I can't miss a visit, to walk the aisles
of 88,000 square feet filled with unique, beautimous junk!

As always, it was a pleasure to browse through the 600+ booths.
Especially the ones in which the vendors had created creative,
 (and some fun, quirky), displays with goods to offer for Fall and Halloween.

I don't typically decorate for Halloween,
 but I could appreciate the whimsy of the vignettes created.

The Depot was crowded Saturday,
but I did manage to take a few pictures to share...

If you're still decorating for fall, or tweaking as I am,
maybe these will offer a little inspiration!

Cute lighted cotton garland...

I picked up a bundle of the wheat from this booth,
just have to figure where to use it.

Sweet sweater pumpkins...

The next three pictures are just random shots I wanted to save for one reason and another.
Hopefully of future projects...

Thanks for stopping by, and joining me on a tour of The Depot!
Hope your week is off to a great start!  :)

  2. Oh, so many gorgeous things and such inspiration! I would have returned without the hubster, as some treasures would have been sitting in his place...LOL Yep, much better than organizing a closet. You've got all winter for that cr...stuff! ;-) Hugs!!

  3. Wow! What a great place to shop and/or visit. I don't blame you for going in anytime you're close ;)

  7. What a treasure trove!! I love the lights in the cotton garland~ you must have gotten a gazillion ideas!

  8. I do not really decorate for Halloween either, but I love what you have shown from the Depot. The decorating inspires me for fall and vintage things. It reminds me a bit of the "Meet Me In St. Louise" fall decor. Kathi
