We Bid Farewell To Canton's First Monday

After nearly 22 years of being a vendor at the famous First Monday Market Days this month was our final month. We did take a three year break when we were traveling full time across the US.

We had hoped our sales would have been strong enough to finish out the year but it just wasn't meant to be. There is an old saying that you can dig into your pocket just so many times before you realize the business isn't paying it's way and it's time to pack it up.

So, we bid farewell to something that Sandy and I have enjoyed for these many years. It's not just the fact of added income it's the friendship you build with your fellow vendors. We've established many many friends that we call family. The happy hours, stories and meals we've shared in the evenings are so memorable and will be dearly missed. Thanks to Canton our lives are brighter, happier and we have had so much fun. We will from time to time come back for a visit with old friends.

On another note I made it to the three quarter of a century mark today and that in it's self is an accomplishment. I'm so thankful the good Lord as been by my side for these many years and the good Lord willing.... I'm looking forward to many more.

Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travelers


  1. Happy Birthday!!!

    Market Day friends are special and will be missed. You will find yourself going back to Canton many times just to say hello and visit with those wonderful friends.

    We did the Wimberley market day for only 3 years and we still go back just to see our friends and catch up on their lives.
