Early holiday shoppers across state pack Canton Marketplace

CANTON, TX (KLTV) - Early shoppers came from all over Texas to shop and spend at "First Monday Trade Days."

From candles to wine, cups and coats, First Monday Weekend isn't what you would call your typical "shopping mall."

Many things sold here are hand-crafted or brand-new. At Sherry Perry's booth, shoppers come by, pick out an item such as a blanket or towel...and she personalizes it with a monogram.

"They come back after they've shopped around and pick it up," said Perry.

Shoppers were lucky to escape with only a bag-full...and then a wagon caught our eye. Robin Pusock of Tomball, Texas came to stock up.

"Christmas, birthday gifts, baby gifts...the majority of gifts are in the other wagon," said Pusock.

If you plan on shopping in at "First Monday Trade Days,"  you need to get there early as parking is limited.
