Have You Ever Done Canton?

So, last week was my first-ever trip to Canton, TX.  You know, the open air market that sane women go crazy for and the men that love them, love them a little less?  We have been doing a little decorating at the Hoffmann household and after always hearing about how great Canton is, decided to make a trip with my good friend, Liz.  We set out early and happened to get a call from my mom while we were stuck in traffic, for no apparent reason.  She said she heard of a tornado that just touched down in a town near Tyler that had an open air market.  Surely that wasn't the same place we were going.  It was 9 am!  Sure enough...tornado in Canton!
We decided to continue on our trek and am glad we did.  There are quite a few of the same shops of dried flowers, adorable kid's stuff, sassy t-shirts and just general home decor.  I didn't realize it was also like going to the State Fair.  How can you pass up a funnel cake and turkey leg at 10 am?!
I ended up with a beautiful oil tapestry, which was the main reason I went.  A few other decor items and the best deal going-cabinet hardware.  I picked some up for a friend who just moved into a new home.  At a buck a piece for knobs and 2.25 for pulls, that is a steal!  Those will run anywhere from $3-6 each if you are lucky at a local store.
So, the bottom line is, if you are going to do some decorating, head to Canton.  Take some comfortable shoes, cooler of food and an open mind.  Oh, and don't forget cash and checks because many places don't accept plastic.  Have a good one!

Canton is awesome!  You can find just about anything you need (ok, maybe you just want it).  Don't forget to take a wagon or cart to get around with all your stuff!
