I'm pretty sure I've mentioned Canton before, but I love it so much I'm going to talk about it again!
First Monday Trade Days, if you haven't heard of it, is basically a giant three-day flea market. It takes over the whole city of Canton, Texas the weekend before the first Monday of every month. While there are tons of antique vendors there is a variety of other things for sell out there such as trendy clothes, homemade items, homegrown food, furniture, estate jewelry, etc. You can basically find anything and everything.
Personally, Canton has turned into a second home for me. My parents and I will take the RV up there and camp for the whole weekend, I mean, three WHOLE days of shopping y'all...what more could a girl ask for??
But, it's not just the amazing shopping for me. It's the people. You'll come across all kinds but mostly it's a bunch of really decent, friendly people with interesting stories to tell and advice to give. My favorite part is when we get into a good conversation with a vendor, I always seem to leave it having grown as a person. The people I come across are so inspiring to me. They had an idea and they went for it and here they are selling their goods in Canton. I always come home filled with ideas and passion. And everyone is just SO nice, they believe in me and they don't even know me. Those are the kind of people I like to surround myself with, they can be hard to come by, but not in Canton.
This is what I wore shopping for the last Trade Days, it was crazy windy and a little chilly so layers were necessary. And I wear nothing but cowboy boots when I'm there (I don't do dusty feet). I did a little photo shoot of my purchases from that day they include a vintage luggage rack, some goat pelts, vintage lace trim, some old leather pieces from a saddle, a vintage lace chemise, and an old book box.
