First Monday, Canton, Texas

Friday, Michael over at Obstructed View posted a link to a story about sales at First Monday Trade Days in Canton. Since this is First Monday weekend and the weather is nice we decided to take a trip out there.

I'm not sure of the average price spent per person, but judging by the size of yesterdays crowd sales have to be picking up. Its hard to describe how large First Monday is, other than saying it's huge and you just have to go out there for yourself. There are two more Trade Day weekends before Christmas.

One of the popular items I saw was a stand that sold large foam cups with college logos on them. Texas Tech seemed to be selling faster than the other schools. Not sure if Texas Tech alums have more school spirit or if they don't care about the environment and would still by foam cups.
