There’s this awesome little market, Beaumont Mill Antiques & Collectibles, nestled in Glen Williams. The mill is quaint, historic and a real gem. Bonus: it’s so close to family that it’s easy to drop in after a visit. I’ve been to quite a few antique markets and I find some are pricier then others but this place is reasonable and has a wide variety of glassware, furniture, vintage clothing, a fantastic collection of beautiful chandeliers and various odds and ends. I scored a few things today that I’m pretty excited about; a giant antique flag and a few coffee/feed bags (can’t wait to craft my way through those to make some unique home decor items).
Found this excerpt on wiki for a little history lesson:
“In 1882, Joseph Beaumont built the Beaumont Knitting Mill to replace the earlier structure destroyed by fire. The Knitting Mill was carried on by the family until 1957, when it was sold to Grew, Penrice and Graham . The Beaumonts produced socks, blankets and mittens in this mill for over 100 years. In 1982 the mill was sold and closed. Today the building serves as the Beaumont Mill Antiques & Collectibles market. Visitors can see the ongoing restoration work of the mill from the inside as they shop at the market.“
My husband walked away from a similar flag at an annual antique market last year so when I saw this I just couldn’t pass it up. It was priced at $80 but managed to get it for $60. It’s huge!! Can’t wait to see this puppy up in our home. You’re welcome bunches!
I’ve been on the hunt for coffee or feed bags to craft something for our house. I think I will make either a rug, pillow covers or display them as wall art…we shall see but I will post whatever I decide on. I like the way they add a textured rustic feel to a room. A little unconventional and out of the ordinary.
Ciao for now! Enjoy your evening.
PS. This post was totally unplanned so I didn’t take enough photos of all the goodies they have to offer so I recommend taking a trip there pronto!
