[Mccoypottery-talk] Biagi-Yard Sales
Sat, 29 Sep 2001 22:19:19 -0500
I attended this HUGE event about 20 miles from me today, called "First
Monday Trade Days" at Canton, TX. (It has everything in the world...arts &
crafts, antiques, junk, etc) It is held once a month and this sleepy
little town of 3000 draws between 200,000 and 300,000 people each month! It
is awesome and covers miles. Surprisingly, I didn't see much McCoy and I
usually do. I did come across one vendor who had a bunch of cookie jars.
Little REd Riding Hood was $250, Aunt Jemimah was $225, and most were in
that range, but there was this Cow with a kitty(I think) on it's back and it
was $850. Being new to McCoy I have no idea if these prices are in line or
not. They had a HUGE sign saying "YES, they are McCoy....if you are serious
about them, we will pick them up so you can see. Do not touch!" Well, I
did NOT touch! haha
