Earlier this month I blogged about the beautiful downtown Faribault, Minnesota where you will find my favorite antique store. Today I'd like to share with you the "soft" country side of this charming little city and a special place you will find along the Cannon River.
Here is the Cannon river which runs throw Alexander Park - a park named after the founder of the city, Alexander Faribault.
It is a scenic spot where you will find ducks, fishing, a dam, and a Woolen Mill.
Today is different than most, there is something extra special happening here this weekend! See that huge tent???
As you can see this weekend, September 26 and 27(9am-4pm), the Faribault Woolen Mill is having their annual Mill Tent sale. It's a saving of 85% on seconds and has many discounted products!
Pretty cute welcome! There is a huge tent filled to the edges with boxes and boxes of blankets, throws, scarfs, etc!
Reminds me that winter is around the corner and I need to stock up on wool!
I especially liked these "ticking" wool blankets and scarves:
Faribault Woolen Mill is a family owned business known for its quality and durable, comfortable wool blankets. It is the oldest manufacturing company in Minnesota and is the last remaining woolen mill in America that uses raw wool and also creates woolen products all in one place.
Watch this video about the woolen mill to understand my love of this store:
Prices at the sale were excellent and I was able to find many things!
The staff was very helpful and ready to check our purchase.
I am so proud of our Mill! Target has announced that Faribault Woolen Mill will be joining to create an exclusive line of classic-meets modern collection of American-made accessories and giftable items starring the heritage mill's signature 100-percent wool textiles. This includes an assortment of bags, throws, scarves and tech accessories (smartphone cases and tablet sleeves) which will be available starting November 2nd. Here is the announcement Target made, along with another great video. I can't wait!
The other day, while window shopping at the posh Galleria Shopping Mall in Edina, I found this cute window display which said, "Wrap yourself in Minnesota History" and then realized it was filled with Faribault Blanket products! I was so proud to see the success the woolen mill is having.
Please visit their online shop and support a local business. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
Remember reuse, renew, repurpose.
