first of all if you are staying in a motel you need to check way in advance. In Oct. Nov. and Dec. all the motels are booked up a year in advance. Last month ( Nov) the closest room I could get was in Ft. Worth. But man is it fun. You will find everything you can think of to... More

After several trips with her girl friends and family, my wife finally persuaded me to check out Canton with her. It is HUGH! There was stuff for days. I really enjoyed looking at everything. The tacos at A&M Street Tacos were excellent as was Taylor's Ice Cream. We did not try Turner's Ice Cream but will definitely hunt out Taylor's... More

On I-20, about 50 miles east of Dallas, small east Texas town, On the weekend before the first Mon. of every month it... More

This place is huge! We shopped Saturday and Sunday and our pedometer showed over 2 miles walked each day...good thing, too. There is a ton of fun foods...fried pickles, corn dogs, funnel cakes, turkey legs and my personal favorite...the hot mini donuts! (across from Martha's near the Breezeway!) There is a lot of duplication but keep your eyes open for... More

The Trade Days is the PERFECT girls getaway! You can find any & everything there in all price ranges & conditions. Vendors are friendly & helpful. There is good food everywhere you turn and I truly have to brag on the bathrooms by the "Main Entrance" - it is staffed, organized and clean!

This is our 7th trip to Canton. We like going in the early spring & late fall. This November trip is the latest we've been. Perfect weather & good shopping. Spent two days & can't wait to return next spring!

My husband and I talked about going to this for years and finally decided this was the year. It was much bigger than we anticipated. We spent two days there and probably only covered about a fourth of it. We may try to make it again to see if we can see the rest of it.

I've been coming to this flea market a few times a year since 1995. I've found some lovely china, crystal, linens, pictures, etc.... I only go to the antique section. It costs $5 to park, and I recommend Thursday shopping before the items are picked over. The dealers already shop each others booths on Wednesdays. Get ready to walk but... More
