River Mill Antiques Celebrating with Spring Fling

February 28, 2016 in Editorials

The owner, Debe Campbell, and the vendors at River Mill Antiques, Etc. are going to be celebrating Spring just as soon as it arrives and all their booths are filled to the brim. They have begun to revamp and rearrange their booths to make room for lots of fresh antiques and vintage furniture, primitives, tools – both old farm and man cave things – plus lots of collectibles, kitchen wares, beautiful glass, stoneware and so much more.


River Mill vendors stay on the hunt, and many travel a good distance to organize and fill their booths every week. With spring in the air, some of these ladies like to change out their own living spaces, making room for framed art, small furniture pieces, (sometimes large, too), and decorative selections. You’re sure to get in the mood to revamp that sweet and cozy porch or sunroom, or maybe even paint a bedroom and completely change out your own decor after you start finding such great deals at River Mills.

Check out the look in a few spring magazines and than look for a few items to refresh your space. Old watering cans withy pretty spring florals added is great accent for the porch or entrance way. Coordinating some fresh artwork with some unique items such as tea cups and saucers, old books, and silver jewelry holders are pretty when added to a table or writing desk. Unique lamps with colors matching florals brings spring indoors.


With Easter in March, vendors will already have little bunnies and glass eggs in their spaces. River Mill has several very unique collectibles such as dolls, toys, some old medical items, great Elvis and other well known artist and movie star selections. Kitchen wares, as well as garden pieces are often available in the spring.


Debe Campbell invites all you dealers to come and enjoy a special night just for you on March 31. This will be “Dealers Night” from 6-10 p.m. Be sure to bring your tax ID, or if you have a business card and it has your ID printed on it, that will work.

The River Mill Antiques Spring Fling will begin on April 1-3, and there will be lots of sales throughout the store and door prizes will be drawn during those days. If you’ve never been to one of their events, you are missing out, not just on loads of deals and unique treasures, but lots of fun. The staff and vendors are all like family. They love for you to visit, and will be on hand to answer your questions or just help you load your trunks.

River Mill Antiques Etc. is located at 4618 East Lamar Alexander Pkwy., in Walland, just east of Maryville, Tenn. Most folks think they’re still in Maryville when they get to the big yellow house, and they don’t mind if you do. Be sure to tell them you heard about their events in The Busy Bee Trader.
