Canton Texas

We went to Canton Texas for the First Monday Trade Days and we walked, and we walked and then we walked some more!  I was shocked at how many people were there, and how many more kept driving in.  We (my hubby and I) both found a few treasures so by the end of our four hour shopping trip we agreed that it was a successful shopping day.   He found more coins for his coin collection and I found two more mason jars to add to my newly started collection.  I also found some awesome chandelier crystals to use in various projects and also picked up some beads and findings and some mold tins.  We then headed to Tyler Texas to visit my wonderful mother and father in-law and Andy’s grandma!  All in all it was a good weekend and I hope yours was too!  Have a great week!

The crowds



They rent out scooters there and too many if you ask me!  Even folks who looked like they could have walked easily were on them, most of the time they were in our way.


There were lots of pets everywhere you looked and there is even a section there where you can buy a pet dog, cat, pig, sheep, goat etc.


Then there was this cute little cowboy buying some coins with his own money!


My new found treasures…….



And here is my new collection, the two pieces on the left found in Warrenton and this weekends finds are on the right, they are a darker turquoise and have an eagle emblem on them.

Looks like a productive shopping trip. I love the jars and I can't wait to see what you do with your jewelry.

You need to add me to your blogroll girlfriend:)
