Those clearance signs are pretty enticing, but if you've ever been to an outlet mall, you know that the discounted products represent just a small part of everything that's available!

Even on a rainy weekday afternoon, there's plenty of activity - though definitely quieter than on a nice weekend!

Here's a secret for super-shoppers: there's a handy list of specials and upcoming events, so you can plan your shopping trip ahead of time.

The Carolina Premium Outlet mall is one of the more upscale outlet malls I've been to, with plenty of bargains to be found. 

Looking for decorative items for your home?  Check out Carolina Pottery - an absolutely huge home decor store. 

Carolina Pottery has indoor and outdoor furniture, home decor items, mirrors, tons of silk flowers and plants, huge outdoor pots, and much more.  The building feels like a Costco inside - it's very large and open with a warehouse feel to it.  Oh, yeah, and Carolina Pottery always has lots of things to choose from in the big bargain displays up front!

If you're hungry, there are plenty of nearby restaraunts. But the only food vendor within the outlet mall itself is Dairy Queen - though who can turn down a banana split or a Blizzard?   There are also drink vending machines.

Michael - not all of your munee would go, remember, this is an Outlet Mall! :)  You can buy twice as much for half the price, hmmm, or something like that.

Cynthia - this is definitely one of my favorites too.  We'll have to meet there sometime!
