My friend and I took our combined 3 offspring on a little day trip to Canton, Texas yesterday for First Monday Trade Days. What's that, you ask? It's only, like, the mega-ist garage sale, thrift store, antique mall, junk yard madness...ever!
(which I'm saying with no intention of fact-checking. It might only be the third or fourth or fifth mega-ist)
(I don't really know)
What I do know is that we spent over 6 hours walking around, digging through piles, haggling with vendors and searching for treasures. And, barely scratched the surface. We should have taken a weekend trip.
But, then we'd've been forced to get temp jobs at the local Waffle House to buy our way home. Because, you know, we'd've spend the gas money on glass jars or rusty buckets or dirty picture frames.
Sometimes we don't think things through.
I saw no fewer than 6 globes that wanted desperately to come home with me. I left with zero.
Already kinda sad about that.
Ashley found some cool old stuff to transform in cute ways.
Tate complained about the gobs of walking 7 minutes into our morning.
I complained 6 minutes in.
And, while we're asking questions, how cool is this old adding machine?
And, potato mashers?
And, wooden bats?
After a long day...baby's got applesauce in her hair and momma's lost her make-up. Somewhere in pavilion 4.
And, this is where we turned back around. Oh, look at all those treasures waiting to be discovered!
What did I come home with?
Stuff. Lots of random stuff.
Including bird-themed stuff for my daughter's bird-themed first birthday party!
And, how I could I leave without this?
And, I didn't
