I like garage sales and bargain hunting, but the whole Trade Days experience was disappointing. Some of the vendors in the flea market area sell stuff that wouldn't pass muster for a neighborhood garage sale--damaged, dirty, useless, and ugly. Why would you drive all this way to buy sheets that they sell in parking lots, flip flops, tee shirts, and... More

It had been 20 years since we went to Canton Trade Days. A lot has changed and it got bigger. There is something for everyone here and up to you to find It! Plan on a minimum of two days for just the main grounds.

Exciting time checking out all the finds. A little overwhelming at first because there is so much to see. I highly recommend a yearly trip. Take your friends & make a long weekend of shopping.

There are so many booths. You will need more than one day to see it all. It has a nice variety of items and there are plenty of food stnads throughout as well when you want to take a break.

You can ship, eat, lodge and get free entertainment every Trade Days weekend. The Mountain suffered fire and is rebuilding. New buildings going up as we speak. Circle the Wagon's Cafe is... More
