Weekend in the Country

Paul Michael Co

Embroidered Top

Plaid Out

My husband and I were fortunate to be able to purchase some land in East Texas two years ago. Our place is about an hour outside of Dallas. Thankfully, it’s not too far since we have to go there every week to check on our chickens. Yes, as if my household full of humans and dogs plus a cat was not busy enought, I had to go and buy chickens!!!

Canton, Texas is a famous “Trade Days” location. What started out over a century ago as a little flea market, has become an exciting, cutting-edge home furnishings, antiques and collectibles market. People come from afar to go to trade days in Canton. One of the shops in the area known as Paul Michael Company is visited by me each time I roll into the country area.  You can see a few items he carries but please…there is so much more. Check out his website or visit while in Canton, TX.

There aren’t too many department stores in the Canton area. Where better to shop then Walmart for grocery and treasures. I recently found some cute cotton tops while shopping for groceries. Momma forgot some clothing – oops! I was pleasantly surprised with my finds. Case and point the above top with embroidery stitching. I mean how darn cute is that!

My red plaid top is from Target, another of my FAB finds of the year. As the market of fashion continues to grow so do the buyers of local superstores.

My long blue cardigan, Gucci belt, and Adidas are from Nordstrom  My wedge is from DSW.

While some of my wardrobe was not purchased in Canton, a whole bunch of it was purchased there. The local shops in the area are always a source of fabulous goods and the people are so friendly. If you are ever in the area be sure to swing by and check out their goodies!

Also, don’t discount the inventory in Target and Walmart. You’ll be surprised how much fun you’ll have and the great finds the newer buyers are bringing in. Remember, it’s not about price its about style!

Happy Shopping!!!
