The Mountain at First Monday Trade Days, Canton

First Monday Trade Days in Canton is a huge flea market, with tons of items from new to gently used to so-old-it’s-new-again items!  Open once a month, the weekend preceding the First Monday, there is so much to see you really can’t do it all in one day!  Luckily, we love The Mountain at First Monday, with not only some adorable shops, restaurants, and an Old West Gun Show, but also some great B&B’s where you can relax for the evening, or put away your purchases and head down to hear live music every Trade Day weekend until 11pm!

My daughter and I took a fun girl’s weekend to do some shopping, foot scrubbing and just general Mom and Daughter bonding!

Even during the summer, the trees on The Mountain made a huge difference is keeping us a little cooler!  During the holidays, the entire Mountain is decorated for Halloween and Christmas, and since the fun on The Mountain never stops after dark, it’s all lit up like a fairy tale!

The humorous Gunfight happens several times a day, and we enjoyed sitting back in the shade and watching as these misfit cowboys had us laughing and learning a little about the Old West, too!
