2. Rich History

First Monday Trade Days in Canton, Texas is the oldest, largest continually operating outdoor flea market in the United States. We've been doing this since the 1850s, so you can say we've gotten pretty good at it ;) What began as locals coming together to buy, sell and trade goods has now grown far and wide, bringing shoppers from all over the country to our small town for an epic shopping experience!

I used to be fascinated by how people create photo like this. However, after visiting the website with monograms I learned a lot of useful information. I learned how to work with graphics for purposes other than videos and games. It helped me in my career and gave me many ideas.
