It snowed for a nano-second in Poetry this morning. Just enough to tease. But, it is supposed to be a lovely weekend coming up. Soooo, what do we do here in Texas? We plan our lives around First Monday at Canton. Trade Days. The Flea Market of alllllllll flea markets. It's a big 'un.
The big news is...Girls Gone Junkin' have got themselves new digs. They are opening shop on Row 46 at the Paul Michael building. Uh huh. They are gonna have walls and everything. Sounds sooo much cozier than their last home, doesn't it? And you know. Or do you? They have kick booty stuff!
(Indeed. This is where I should insert a picture. But, it was cold and wet or something last month and I didn't get out there to take pics of the wild girls. Oops!)
And while you are there, on Row 46, it would be a wise choice to stop by Uniquely Different for some uniquely different shopping. Those girls work all month to bring in new, funky, cool, crazy stuff for you. Stop in and and tell 'em Mindy sent ya.
Then, it would be oh, so worth your while to head to the Arbors 2, spaces 207 & 208A to pay a visit to Troy, Rod and Sherry of Junk Exchange. You've never seen a slipcover til you've seen a slipcover made by Troy. And lamp shades. And. Well. Go look. Buy. Amazing stuff.
I would be derelict in my duties if I failed to remind you that Primitiques in Poetry could very well be on your way to Canton (click here for map). And even if it's not, well, come see us anyway! We have a roof and walls and a heater. There's a burger joint next door to slap your momma about. Seriously. And I've brought in enough new stuff lately to fill your truck up and then some.
All this Canton talk kinda gets my heart racing. Shopping is my favorite form of exercise, you know? Maybe I'll see you there!
