~NEW Antique Mall...The Depot at Gibson Mill~

The Depot at Gibson Mill..... thats where I have been spending all my time.... I have been away from the blog for a while but I am back with exciting news!! This going to be one of the largest Antique Malls around our area... I am so excited about it that I have quit my job to work here full time!!! The Depot Gibson Mill is set to open it's doors Feb 1st! You can read all bout the Mill and one of it's owners Gary Pigg on Charlotte 360.com. The charm & character this old mill has to offer is spectacular not to mention it's 88,000 possible sq feet is amazing! We will be opening up with around 45,000 and expanding to full capacity by early Spring to include a full scale Design Center!! Spaces are still available for rent at $1.00 a sq foot, yep that's right $1. With no rental contract!! We have dealers renting as far away as New York. We do offer booth design and booth management for dealers that may not be able to make it into the market on a regular basis. This is offered at a very reasonable rate. The Depot will also have onsite storage and workspace available from $1.00-$2.00 a ft to all dealers. Mall Central will be provided to all dealers at no charge so they can log onto their computer to check their sales daily! And of course we have not left out Coffee and Ice Cream... Cabarrus Creamery will have an ice cream shop onsite, just like the good ole days in Concord along with S&D Coffees! Hours of operation will be Monday-Saturday 9-9 and Sunday 11-6! Rental inquires can be answered at 704.787.9351 & 704.280.4278. We are located at 325 McGill Ave in Concord NC, just 10 minutes from the Charlotte Motor Speedway. If you come in via Interstate I-85 you will not miss the 3 Monster Billboards directing you in from all areas! Hop over the website for more details http://www.thedepotgibsonmill.com/ , I hope to see everyone there!! I have snapped a few pics last week of some of the booths that were in the beginning stages of being set up, more pics to come so please check back!











Make sure to check back tomorrow for Part II of The Depot at Gibson Mill....I will post pics of the fabulous old wood floors, old chippy white brick walls along with some new vendor pics! The bones of this old building will fill any Antique junkie with excitement!!

Oh Jana! I am so excited for you. Sounds like the Mill will do well. Is that price of $1.00 per sq ft average for your area? You will have a lot of fun working there. Hope you do not spend all of your wages on the goodies....You will have first choice! It will be hard to resist buying. Glad to hear from you again. I missed you. Hugs, sandi

Mary said...

Janna, it's just wonderful that you will be following your bliss and working here. I look forward to coming down sometime, perhaps mid-February. Perhaps Anna (Chickens in the Basement) will come with me, and we'll try to rustle up some more Raleigh gals too! Is the mill heated?

Getting so many great comments on my necklace, which of course means I'm wearing it often!!

Yes when I'm down at school at UNCC, in between classes I'll definately be there. I would really like to start my own cubby, but being a student is a full time job.

I will definately stop by and say hey to a fellow blogger!
