I was in Texas, at First Monday in Canton. A flea market that takes place the weekend before the first Monday of every month, 12 weekends a year. It's a great antique market, with vendors from around the country.
Canton is known for its First Monday trade days, a tradition that began years ago. Held on 30 acres, it originally began as a place to swap animals, antiques, surplus merchandise etc. At first, planned around government meetings, it quickly became a popular spot to come to buy, sell and swap merchandise.
Our weekend there, was hot. Maya had already given in and bought a large brim texan hat to protect her from the intense heat. We were there prepping for a shoot in Austin taking place the following week,and really loving the experience. This large pewter bowl was already bought and we were feeling pretty content.
Carrying our bags back to the car, we put on our cheesy driving playlist and went for a drink at the hotel. Unable to be had in Canton, Van Zandt county, a dry county at the time, we settled on some delicious barbecue and an early night sleep.
It was a pretty perfect day.
