Southern Living Top 5

Can you believe it?  Several friends sent emails congratulating us for being mentioned in an article about First Monday in the latest issue of Southern Living. I didn't even know the magazine was out yet!

Southern Living shot our booth in the Arbors last year, but since we had given up the booth to focus on our 5,000 square foot store, I wasn't even sure we would be mentioned in the article.   Yes, it's true that our store is only a half mile up the road from the First Monday grounds (1457 N. Trade Days Blvd), but as we are not in a booth right on the grounds I was fully prepared that we may not be included in the article. 

All I can say is, "Boy was I wrong"!  Not only were we included in the article but we were named by Southern Living as one of the top 5 places to visit in Canton. Thank you Southern Living for the lovely write up about the shoppe and how we began!

I am in this business because I love it, plain and simple.  So, when things like this fall into my lap it's just icing on the cake!  Stay tuned to hear what other upcoming amazing and wonderful things have fallen into our lap!!  This is going to be one heck of an exciting year!

Thank you so much for always supporting and encouraging us as you do! 

Come see all of us during the next First Monday show that takes place June 2nd - 6th.
