For more than 150 years, shoppers from across Northeast Texas and beyond have been coming to the Original First Monday Trade Days in Canton. In the early days, they travelled to Canton to trade horses, livestock, dogs, tools and farm equipment, and to sell homemade items and produce. More than a century later, antiques and collectibles, furniture and home decor, arts and crafts, jewelry and vintage clothing are among the more sought-after items.

In today’s fast-moving world where almost anything can be purchased from a home computer, many marvel at the thousands of shoppers who continue to make the trek to Canton month after month. They say it’s the First Monday experience that keeps them coming back.
