On Thursday morning early, Mom, Ashley, Lexi and my sister-in-law, Sarah, drove to Canton for a day of bargain shopping at the huge "First Monday" flea market. Below are some pictures from our fun day.
Here Sarah takes a close look at some antiques. She scored a beautiful rose painting on canvas, unframed, for the baby's room from this vendor.
Ashley and Mom absorbing ideas in a beautiful booth. Mom scored a beautiful vase that now sits on our piano. Notice the Christmas trees? Canton vendors are getting ready for the holiday.
Ashley and Sarah were examining a window shutter, I think. Notice Sarah's fabulous hat? It's from Costa Rica and is made (obviously!) for shielding face and scalp from a hot sun She is obviously the smartest, savviest, out-of-doors shopper in the family. She came with her backpack, sunscreen, hat, trail mix and large bottle of water. Smart, smart . We walked around toasted, hungry, thirsty, with our arms aching from carrying bags and wished we had had half of her foresight. And we have lived in Texas much longer! :)
My "baby" sister. Isn't she beautiful? :)
Mom texting. (More money? Please?!) You can see where Lexi comes by her loveliness.
We are already saving our money for next month's trip. Mom even bought paper cups and lids so that we can share coffee drinks while we are out and put our saved dollars into the Canton fund. :)
