If you haven’t been to the First Monday in Canton, then you are missing out! Now I know what you are thinking… what do they have? They have everything!

Boutique Childrens Clothing & Accessories

There is a variety of children’s clothing for both formal and casual occasions. They have baby clothes, toddler outfits, and even the most adorable older kid clothes. Are you looking for shoes and accessories for your little one? They have that too. It is boutique paradise!

Womens Boutique Clothing

This is a one stop shop for women’s clothing. They have everything you need to look good for the upcoming season. I love that they have plenty of trendy tops and dresses for every size. The majority of the vendors lean towards country glam or the “mom look”. However, there are maybe 1 or 2 vendors who lean more towards my favorite, the “trendy hip hop” look.

Boutique Shoes

The shops even have all the latest boutique style shoes. I’m personally a huge fan of the boutique Golden Goose style shoes. If you are wondering what the heck are Golden Goose shoes. They are the intentional looking dirty shoes with stars on them.

Antiques

This should be one of the main reasons you are going. You can spend an entire day roaming up and down through vendor shops looking at antiques and still not see everything. This place is massive! If you can’t find what you are looking for it’s because you ran out of time NOT because they didn’t have it.

Home Decor

If you love farm house decor, this is the spot to shop. I would say about 95% of the home decor vendors are selling the farm house look. I personally wish they had more of a variety of home decor for everyone’s style. So if you are thinking about being a vendor heres your ..hint hint!

If you are in Texas and you love to shop, then add this place to your bucket-list. This is the perfect escape from the rush hour and fast pace lifestyle that most Texans are used to from living in the big city.
