I discovered The Mill in Cibolo just a few weeks after they began posting on instagram. I was intrigued by their 1929 lumber mill remodel; I was anxious to hear about what was going inside the building; I was loving the beautiful reclaimed materials that they were using! By July of 2016 they had opened their doors, welcoming people into a mish-mash of wood, metal, brick, vintage furniture, items for sale from makers all across Texas in the boutique, an ice cream parlor (The Scoop), and an art/painting studio (Picasso’s Cellar)!!! Out of the mouth of the owner (Christine Bowden) herself, “We like to more call ourselves a co-op for makers. we are a small business that purely exists to showcase and support other small business. This even extends into the ice cream parlor where our ice cream is hand made in small batches by a little mom and pop team, and our drinks are all made here in Texas.” So eclectic and cute… and such a great purpose! I had to be a part!
While it took a while for me to get over there with products, we were finally set up and ready to sell our lip balms, healing salves, body scrubs, and postcards in the boutique!
And while we were there, I finally got to see everything in person. And when I say everything, I mean magnet, pens, greeting cards, dinosaur planters, clothing, tote bags, wooden signs, toys, blankets, nail polish, cutting boards, jams and jellies, candles, jewelry, wreaths, coasters, crosses, bibs, metal letters, dog bandanas, kitchen towels, organizers and planners, soaps… and more! And many of them handmade from some of our fellow Boerne Handmade Market friends!
You must go!
