What a fun day in Canton

The day started when Stitchin Tina
and Sand Flat Vickie and I, met up here at my "little piece of heaven", loaded up Tina's van and headed for Canton around 12:00.

We started slowly in the Junk area but quickly had to head over to
Linda's Blue Gate
Here's a pic of us with Linda. She is now in the Arbors and has a beautiful booth there.

this was the first time for Vickie to see Linda's booth and to meet Linda.
Then it was off to the junk. I lead the girls into an area where there really is some good junk.

Vickie haggles about this item

After considering it for a good long time, she put it back.

"Ohh! Ladders, I've been looking for an old ladder."

"Perfect Fit"

This is a unique item, hum...

Where else can you find the front fender of an old school bus? Wouldn't this make a great headboard in a kid's room.

This is some of what I got. Watch for future projects

Beautiful old illustrations

Great deal on these frames for future projects, and these Old chippy painted wood planks
and a carriage wheel, for another project.

Love this old rusty stuff
and China for another wreath or swag, Children's dishes work great for this type of project.

Tina found this and I just had to get it. I added the sparkle on the ends last night.

And this stack of red transferware just for me.

After shopping we had a great Mexican meal there in town and headed home.
It was a great day, and except for gluing those rhinestones, I came home and crashed.
Thanks Ladies for a wonderful afternoon, with junking buddies.

I'm so glad you all stopped by to say Hi.... wish I could have gone junking with you.... looks like you all had so much fun..

Vanessa said...

The bad news - we are getting ready to move to a new town and I am not very thrilled about it. The good news - I just figured out that we will only be 3 1/2 hours from Canton. That will be good for a weekend getaway every now and then!

Rosemary said...

Hi Margo,
What a great time you all had. Wish I could have been there.
It looks like such a great place.
I'm sure you will come up with some fun projects soon.

Dallas is about 1 hr and 20 mins from canton. Canton is on the weekend of the First Monday of each month only. Hope your convention falls on that weekend.
The junk is out by the civic center and the new stuff is in the covered arbors etc. I stay out by the junk myself.

Vickie, I didn't but you just did. :)


have great week

Sand Flat Farm said...

Hey Margo - I told on myself! After I thought about it, it started being funnier and I decided to just blow my cover and maybe some others would get a kick out of it, too. Still feel a little bad for the vendor, tho. Vickie

misselaineous said...

I am new at blogging and already luv it! If you get a chance please visit my cottage and take a look at my Trash to Treasure bench we made. Connie

Looks like you had a great day! I got sick over New Years, and my husband wouldn't let me leave my sick-bed to go to Canton. DRATS! Love, Love, Love the Red Transferware. Red and Pink is what I use and collect also. Maybe we can hook up next month if you go.
