Canton Starts Thursday

Just a reminder, that the Canton Flea Market starts tomorrow on Thursday. Now if you are like me, it's posted on your calendar and you receive a reminder to make sure you won't miss it. Of course knowing it will be hot no doubt, but this still would not keep you die hard junkers from missing the best flea market in all of Texas, you just have to go early to beat the heat. In all the years I've been going to Canton, I know that neither heat, nor rain, nor cold has kept me away. It's also the beginning of my husband's Birthday weekend and since I got to celebrate all weekend for mine, you can be guaranteed he'll be celebrating all weekend for his. Yes, we are exactly one week apart. It's officially on the 1st, but I know he'll start celebrating on Thurday and go through Monday. When I asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday, there was no doubt what he wanted and that was to go to Canton! So off we go, early in the morning in search of the best junk. Don't forget that Ki with The Junk Camp will be meeting other bloggers at Maggie of The Veranda's booth, check out either blog for details. Can't wait to meet up with her and Margo and the others.

On another note, Judy Hill is no longer setting up at Canton. I know it won't be the same without her, but I'll share more news about her upcoming Open House on June 11th, that you don't want to miss. In case you aren't familiar with her Open Houses, check out my post here for her open house during June of last year and also look here and here and you'll see why you want to go ahead and make plans to attend her event. Here are a few pics of her Open House show in June 2008:

Be sure and check out these vendors if you go to Canton:

**Donna of Curious Goods and Lillie of The Junk Palace are all located in the Civic Center.

**Carolyn Westbrook and Laurie of Laurie Anna's Vintage Home are located in The Arbors.

**Sue is located with Girls Gone Junkin in a separate building before you get to The Arbors.

Have fun and let me know if you are going to make it to Ki's blogger party. Maybe I'll see you there.


  1. Happy Birthday, Cruz! I know y'all will have so much fun celebrating all weekend. I am unable to make it to Canton until Saturday. Will y'all leave something for me? ~Mindy

  2. Once again you are having all the fun!!! Have some for me too, talk to you soon!! Chrissy

  3. Darn it! I always miss the good stuff! I'm hoping to be able to make it to Canton one of these days.

    I have something lovely for you on my blog.

    Happy Birthday Cruz!!!

  4. Oh how I wish I could see some of these events! We don't have things like this in my area

  5. Wow- happy birthday! And say hi to Ki for me. I wish I could break free and come to Canton- maybe this fall...I can cut class for a couple days!

  6. Thanks for the post on our "Spring Open House" and also for letting people know that we won't be at Canton any longer. I hope to see you and Cruz tomorrow because I will be a "shopper" I know you and Cruz will have a fun day celebrating his birthday- Judy

  7. I probably won't make it to Canton even tho I really want to. I think we are going to make a run to Kansas to the Mid-America show up there, so I'll be packing. Like I really have time to travel!

  8. I'm so tempted to book my tickets right now. Wish I could. I'd love to go to the Blogger party with Ki. But then I'd also love to to go to Judy Hill's sale. I saw her booth at Marburger and was just drooling! I wish I lived in Texas!
