A Day of Junkin

Our day started out early yesterday as we headed to the Canton Tx Flea Market. I predicted correctly, it was hot and it didn't take long for the humidity to sit in, but this still did not stop us from looking for treasures. I did find a few things at the places we went to. We first saw Donna and Lillie in the Civic Center and Ms. Ethel (that's moving in the Winnie and Tulula Shop) was on the Unreserved Side. I also saw Don of Detour shopping, looking for cool things to put in his booth in Uncommon Objects no doubt. I also found a new dealer that it was their first time to set up in Canton, Peg and Bob of Gatherings are from Missouri. They had really great things as you can see:
The Blogger Party at Maggie's Place was very successful and it was so nice getting to meet Ki of The Junk Camp and Nancy of Ella Elaine. Margo was Ki's Tour Guide for this event. I first met Nancy in the field and it was funny that she recognized me first. I always try and study pictures so that I can recognize people and when I first saw her I thought she looked familiar. We had fun at the Party and as always Maggie had her space looking great. Gloria of Sweet Pea has joined her in The Veranda and her things looked gorgeous as well. Ms. Judy was there and her upcoming Open House sounds like it is going to be Fab-u-lous!! For those fans that just loved Judy Hill's space during Marburger, she has a new website you can check out here. Here are pics of our day at Canton.

Look at these shoppers in Donna's booth, they were all talking about Donna moving into Winnie and Tulula's shop.

This was Lillie's booth, liked all the white vases, buttons and things. Lillie is also moving into Winnie and Tulula's as well.

This is Nancy and Eileen. Check out Nancy's Blog or if you are in the McKinney area, both of them are located in the Antique Company Mall.

Here are the bloggers at the Party, the first lady I don't remember her name (sorry), then Donna, Margo and Ki.

After we left Canton, we then headed down the road to see Jo at Imagine in Quinlan Tx. She always amazes me with the things she has. Besides you couldn't meet a sweeter person, I could spend all day talking with her. I hope you can make it to her place soon, you won't be disappointed. Jo is located inside the Hunt County Flea Market at 9065 FM 751 #18 & 19 (she's at the very back corner on the left side of the buildings) Quinlan, TX and she's open Sat/Sun or by appointment, 903-456-4129:

  1. Ugh...hated to miss it, but to many things going on right now. Oh, that one new find is awesome! OK, if you are coming in the back way (64, I think) is unreserved on the right or the left? Last time I tried to find Willow Nest and never could find those guys. Oh well, perhaps I'll go next month when it will be REALLY sweaty and hot. LOL.

  5. Teresa, Hi! I am finally able to get to your blog. You are on my side bar but for the past few months every time I tried to visit my computer locked up. I tried switching from Firefox to Safari and finally got on but couldn't comment. Yikes! I have found if I click an individual post I can now visit but I can't load your entire blog. So I haven't forgotten you I have desperately tried to see all the junkin going on! Looks like as usual treasures abound! Pam
