First Monday Lodging | Mill Creek Ranch ResortFirst Monday Trade Days is one of East Texas’ biggest attractions and one of the nation’s largest and most popular flea markets. It’s also one of the bigger draws to the beautiful Canton, Tx (though we assure you there are plenty of other exciting things to keep you busy once you’ve perused, shopped, and shopped some more). At First Monday Canton, take advantage of the 450 acres filled with over 7,000 vendors selling everything from home furnishings and yard art to collectibles and toys. Even if you aren’t in the market for anything specific, First Monday Canton is a sight to see in its own right.

Canton Trade Days | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

For the first time ever, Mill Creek Ranch Resort is offering a special during the First Monday Canton Trade Days event from January 30 through February 2. Rent one of our luxury Texas cottages over this Trade Days weekend for only $150/night. (Special applies to new reservations only.) Yes, we know this is Super Bowl weekend. Don’t worry, we are equipped with TV’s, grills, and each cottage is equipped with a full kitchen so you can do both! Bring your Super Bowl party to Canton and head to Trade Days for some shopping as everybody starts to get in gear for spring.

If the only thing you like about the Super Bowl is that it means football season is over, leave the football fans at home while you come to Canton and shop. Take it up a notch and call it a girl’s weekend. What better excuse to get together with your besties than to leave the hubbies at home over Super Bowl weekend and take some time away to shop, pamper yourself, and catch up. Mill Creek Ranch Resort has the works for a relaxing luxury stay with warm, rustic touches so you and your girls can get that much needed R&R.  Start your weekend off with a great night of music and fun as the FM 19 Back Porch Band performs in the Grand Lodge, while you enjoy a full bar and comfort foods.
