We went to Canton Texas for the First Monday Trade Days. Think of a giant flea market.
As I understand it, way back the circuit judge came to town the 1st Monday of every month & people showed up in town for that. They did their trading at the same time, it became a habit

The weekend before the 1st Monday is when this goes on (starting that Thurs).
|Used doors & other building things|
It's big, there are all types of things for sale and a large number of corn dog stands.
|There are clothes of all shapes, sizes & fabrics|
If you're not a fan of flea markets or you really don't like crowds or corn dogs it's probably not for you.
|This building was one of 3 that were side by side|
If you like to look at stuff (or you are looking for "something") and people watching is recreation for you, this is the place!
For those of you who care about such things the 1st Monday Trade Days takes place in a dry county...
It runs Thursday thru Sunday with Saturday being a busy day.
I was asked for a photo of the Horny Toad, not a problem... it was hiding. I'd have put it as a comment but I couldn't figure out how to do that.
