Are you someone who will base a trip around someplace that you want to visit? I am. I was watching Tiny House Big Living on HGTV one time last summer and they were decorating one of the tiny houses. They went to a store called The Rumor Mill Market.

I highly recommend that if you are going to be anywhere in the area, you stop by and browse through. I am sure you will find something that you didn’t know you needed.
