{Calling All Flea Market Homies}

Friday, October 29, 2010

Nothing makes me come alive like fishing, clycling, and flea markets. Today I spent time at one of my all time favorite places: Canton's First Monday Trade Days. If you've never been before I highly recommend adding this ginormous  outdoor flea market to your bucket list. It's guaranteed to put you in your happy place. Just sayin.

We lived in McKinney for three years and LOVED going to Canton! I find myself comparing all flea markets to it and they have not lived up. :)

mike, adding it to our list of hot dates. ps, i have a new show for you: american restoration. totally hooked. xoxo frank

the coons family, i have yet to find a better one myself! completely worth the hour and a half drive to get out of dallas.

beck, thought of you several times while i was there. esp when i saw airstream.

lima, the flea market in gas city (across from the chinese restaurant) is actually really good. check it.

anony, the old stuff is outside of the arbors towards the back by the trade center. it's where i spend 100% of my time. much cheaper and way more my speed.

vic / papa, i'm not sure which one commented but can you believe how awesome that is? i should have brought it home with me! ps, crocks always make me think of you guys. great for trash cans, magazines, plants. love em.

morgandkim, come to the mainland already!

court, you'd love it. several acres of junk for cheap. so many great deals and options to repurpose and be inspired by old things.

O my lanta. I LOVE Canton.
My Mommacita and I used to go all the time when I was in high school. She even let me skip school a few times for it :]
Canton is definitely one of my happy places.
LOVEEEE!
