My friend, Priscilla, and I are heading out for "First Monday Trade Days" in Canton, TX this morning! It's been a long time since I've been there, and I'm sooooo excited! We have a couple of places that we want to shop and drool over the goodies, and I'm good at both of those activities. Plus it may take both of us to haul off our treasures. This wedding is giving me just the excuse I need. Just sayin'.
This is from LaurieAnna's Shoppe - our #1 stop. Can you believe that it is a small camper that she's made over?? Sigh, I'm in love.
The First Monday Trade Days goes back about 150 years and it it has become one of the largest events of its kind. You can find antiques, collectibles, crafts, arts, home furnishings, decor, jewelry.....the list is endless, and so is the park. It fills acres and acres of land and there is no way to see it all. That's why we are going to go to a few select places and shops - and (hopefully) not kill ourselves in the process.
And Ah b'leeve Ah 'mohna have me a turkey leg fer lunch. That's Texan for "I believe I'm going to eat a turkey leg for lunch....." a Canton must-have. Something about driving out in the country makes me feel like I should really lay on the accent real thick-like.
What is on your weekend agenda? Any flea market/garage sale plans? I love it when the weather turns just cool enough to enjoy the hunt. What kinds of things are you hunting for? I'm looking for vintage tablecloths to use for the wedding!
Time to link up for Company Girl Coffee! I've been such a bad hostess and have not made my rounds lately....but I do hope to get around this weekend. To participate, simply enter your blog post URL below. Not sure what to blog about? How about this prompt: What is your favorite tag sale find? It doesn't get any easier than that - and you can really just talk about what ever you want, (not just tage sale finds.) Our weekly coffee gives YOU a chance to connect with other Company Girls - some of the best gals around!!
Have a great weekend everyone! No Small Thing today.
