We spent FIVE hours at Canton Trade Days Saturday. That’s five hours of walking. I think I’ve had my cardio for the week. This time we didn’t go to the animal side of Trade Days but to where they keep the crafts and antiques. This side of Trade Days is way bigger than Dog Alley.

There were only two things I liked. One was a bench made from real tree trunks and branches. The other was a dog print. It had more damage than I would’ve liked, otherwise I would’ve bought it. I’m on the hunt for dog paintings, preferably old paintings, but I’ll settle for prints if it has a vintage look to it.

My friend, Mel, who came with us, did the most shopping. That girl can always find bargains! She’s my shopping idol!

Today we plan to take it easy but we might hit a local antique shop since I’m in the mood to keep looking for paintings, and a bauble for my mother.

What’s your plan for Sunday? What’s the longest you’ve ever walked/shopped?

  1. Longest I ever walked was back in 2005 when we were visiting Washington, DC. We had dinner at a restaurant in Union Square and were so full we needed to walk a bit. We were using the Metro so we had to figure out where we needed to walk to once we were ready to head back to our hotel. We figured that day we walked close to 6 miles which definitely did not cover the amount of calories consumed, but eating the great food was worth it!


  2. Betty: Yes! We went to DC one year and I actually wore out the soles of my shoes. We road the trolley too, but it wasn’t enough. Every night we had our feet up hoping we’d be able to do more walking the next day.

    There was so much to see. Someday, I hope to go back.
