Back From Canton...

Today I braved the heat and headed out to First Monday Trades days in Canton. I was on the lookout for unusual and small items for my booth. I think I did pretty well, and it even required a trip to the ATM machine, as I was running out of cash.
Here's my haul (most of these items are for sale, so feel free to inquire)

Let's break it down, a Giant letter V, and some sort of horn, and
old carriage wheels

Letterpress letters

Store signs, Love these.

Flash Cards

Little number thingies

A clock of course, I can't leave Canton without a clock, unusual license plate
Small sap or sugar mold buckets, a metal hand pointing

Insulators (i have a project in mind for these)

Brass number rings, These are big about 3" long

Register Flags (not purchased in Canton, but in my mail box when I got home)
and some Hot cold water faucets

Look what Margaret and Lilly from The Veranda

Gave me, knowing my love of clocks.
I liked this booklet I bought 4 more.

Now for some sights and sounds. These are things I didn't buy, but thought they looked cool.

And no, that's not the price of Gas in Texas ( I wish)

It was very hot, and I was really beat down when I got home, but it was worth it.
Hope you have a great 4th.

Margo, looks like you found some neat things. You are so right, it was HOT in Canton, we didn't stay long, we left before noon. Happy 4th, T

Vanessa said...

Such fun finds! I can't wait to go to Canton some day. I need to start saving my pennies!

I shouldn't even ask, but are you selling the huge letter V? How much would it be including shipping to AR? Just curious.

I can't believe you went to Canton in this heat! You are more of a woman than I am! LOL
Looks like you got some great stuff - wish that big V was a big Z!
Have a great 4th!

He margo! LOVE your Canton finds. I need to get back down there soon. Been a few yrs since I visited there. If Vanessa didn't purchase your giant letter "V", I might be interested in it.
