Canton 2012

Last year I wrote about Canton... but last year no one read my blog sooooo I am writing about it again. 

Last year Reese's cousin Bethany, whom I consisidently share a brain with, came with me for our first "real" trip to Canton. Canton in a nutshell is a craft fair/flea market/antique show on steroids. Basically it is a 100 acres of blogger paradise aka shopping, crafting, and food. 

Beth and I had so much fun that we decided to make it an annual tradition!

This year her mom. and sisters joined us for a fun weekend of shoppin' till we were almost droppin'. 


I always end up with one really great haggle item, and this year the winner is this globe! Originally it was $40 (ridciuloussss), with out any prompting the seller cam down to $20... I picked up and and noticed some damage so I got him down to $12... yes, please. 

These are my favorite finds of the day! I just love the colors and graphics! Really I just love old things. 

This is actually a combination of all of the cameras I have collected over the times I have been to canton, but grouped together they pack more of a punch!  

This, this fram is the Pièce de résistance of my trip! $20 for this gorgeous frame! People were trying to buy it off of me all day! One, who claimed to be an artist, told me it was actually worth $200, D-E-A-L if I do say so myself! 

I also bought the oil cloth that is behind it for a REAL FUN craft project for over Christmas break!! So excited to share it! 


I can't wait until Canton next year!
