The city of Canton is home to First Monday Trade Days. They are the self-proclaimed "Largest Flea Market in America".
I don't know if that's true or not, but it's pretty dang huge. This isn't even half of it.
Good early omen...I parked under this tree with a teeny owl hole.
I go almost every year. Sometimes I go twice if I'm feeling sparky.
Blooming trees at the entrance.
Huge metal buildings everywhere filled with fine antiques, clothes, furniture, food, junk, whatever. You want it? They've got it.
I want All The Things! I finally started bringing one of those rolling carts with me. It makes your life a lot easier.
She makes really cool bear heads and busts and holiday decorations at She's Off Her Rocker.
This was Sweetie, and she was floppy. I get a kick out of cowpokes and little dogs.
I now have the itch to build enormous metal sculptures. I wish I'd stood in the photo for size, but I only came up to the seagull's chest. It was HUGE! I'm guessing it was in front of a restaurant, maybe? And check out that Chinese dragon costume.
I saw this giant lemon being pulled behind a truck a few years ago. The girls were beside themselves with excitement. They just didn't understand why a ginormous lemon was on the road. This guys was a TALKER! I asked if I could take his photo and he told me..."Sure, hon-but you'd best be careful. I'm wanted in three states."
You know you want this.
Megan...this would be perfect in your place! It's big..about 2 feet across.
Aren't these cool? I like kinetic sculptures.
Barbie Bel Aire convertible!!!
A pile of goldalicious faux-Egyptian jewelry. I plan to re-attach them into one ginormous, noisy necklace. Little silly plastic dogs in gumball machine bubbles for the girls, and a nice vintage ballet costume design book with color prints for framing.
An anchor necklace and a set of sleigh bells. They have glass marbles inside instead of metal, which makes for the softest, most delightful "tinkle". I have a set for the house but wanted bells for the studio door, too
I wanted to find a way to get myself to drink more healthy teas. So THIS fancy business will hopefully motivate me to fill it with pretty herbal drinks. You can put a tealight in the bottom to keep it warm.
A card game called "Woodland Snap". They're adorable and I love all things woodland/forest.
Adam said, "Is that a statue of a guy beating his dog with a gun???"
No. It's not.
My husband's inability to understand public sculpture never fails to amuse me. I think he does it to tease me.
Bye bye, Canton. See you next year!
