A Shop Within RiverMill Antique Mall

We love to find those shops within larger antique malls that name their vendor space. Most times, their name give us a hint of what you might find in them. For instance, one of the many shoppes within RiverMill Antique Mall in Walland, Tenn., in the Maryville area, is called “addie bair home.” Owner Diane Cordle has set the bar high, as she has a wonderful mix of eclectic, transitional and vintage décor accessories. There’s home furnishings, some of which are mixed with antiques and primitives, and lots of garden metal and art. She has flags for gardens or home, tin and zinc items, and cute small animals that are perfect to add to a table or shelf to make a statement or just add a soft touch.

Diane’s slogan is a French phrase “Je ne said quoi touch,” which means “I do not know what” – in other words, something hard to describe. The French knew in design it was something you needed to always watch, so with addie bair home, keep watching and checking it out.

Visit Diane’s small shoppe inside RiverMill Antique Mall often, or you’ll miss a lot of her fresh selections. With spring just around the corner, the booth is filled with so many unique items for outdoors or your screened-in porches. There’s great framed prints for spring, lots of flower pots, metal shelves, weather vanes; just too much to list! So make a trip to Walland and stop in at the RiverMill Antique Mall located at 4618 East Lamar Alexander Parkway and ask where this great little shoppe is within the mall.

Debe Campbell, owner of RiverMill Antiques, and all the staff and shoppe owners invite you to visit. They’ll be ready for Valentine’s with lots of sweet and lovely gifts for that special someone you love. This two-story mall is always full, inside and out. It pays to have several hours when you visit, so you can enjoy it all. You can find addie bair’s ad on the Maryville page, and be sure to like them on Facebook. There’s always something fun going on at this mall, and if you’ve been looking for an unusual or hard-to-find item for a long time, this might just be your lucky hunt!
