CANTON TRADE  DAYS
April 29-May 2, 2011
What started more than a century ago as a flea market, has become home to some of the most exciting, cutting-edge home furnishings, antiques and collectibles that can be found anywhere. Over the past 150 years, lots of things have changed in the Original First Monday Park; but, the genuine, down-home human relationship between vendors and shoppers is the reason people keeping coming back. This is a place where you can slow down, visit and ask questions, talk to collectors and antique dealers, and meet the artists and craftsmen who create one-of-a kind items.

The world's largest outdoor trade days takes place Thursday through Sunday before the first Monday of every month in Canton, Texas. Every month, thousands of vendors from across the country turn this friendly East Texas community into a shopper's paradise where you can find the rare antiques and collectibles, furniture, fine home decor, arts and crafts, clothing, jewelry, tools, produce, and much more. Make plans now to come to Canton and enjoy the First Monday shopping experience.
Every time we feature First Monday this year we will give you some different information that you may need to make your shopping experience more enjoyable!.

Chuck Brodsky - Live, Original Folk Music
Saturday, May 14th, 2011 @ 7:00pm
This down to earth musical storyteller, with his dry, barb-witted social commentary combined with a deep underlying compassion, knows that the best stories are the little things in the lives of everyday people trying to muddle through with some grace. His great gift as a writer is to infuse these stories with humanity and humor, making them resonate profoundly with his listeners.

His spoken introductions to his songs can be as spellbinding as his colorful lyrics, which he brings to life with a well-travelled voice and a delivery that’s natural and conversational. His groove-oriented strumming and fingerpicking draw on influences from the mountains of western North Carolina where he now lives, and from lots of different good old traditional folk stuff of all kinds.
Chuck Brodsky’s songwriting pokes fun at political corruption, road rage, mischief he made as a kid, even dumping garbage in the river; he sings about unsung heroes and forgotten but incredible people,odd characters from the game of baseball, migrant fruit pickers, the Goat Man, a clown, or
 a developmentally disabled man and the love showered on him for 40 years at a high school in South Carolina (this song was used in the 2003 movie. The New York Times says..."What tales this singer-songwriter from Philadelphia has...With insight and good humor, he has taken these life experiences and distilled them into old fashioned story songs brimming with wit and compassion."
Don’t miss our final concert of the season...it’s sure to be one you’ll remember!
Cost is $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door.

Well once again you can see there is LOTS to do here in Tyler and East Texas. Come stay with us at The Rosevine Inn and enjoy our wonderful area.
Until next time-your innkeeper signing off!!!

It’s here, and it’s "AN ELLE OF A SHOW" (TIME Magazine).
The hilarious MGM film is Broadway’s new smash hit musical, and now LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL is coming to you. LEGALLY BLONDE follows sorority star Elle Woods, an underestimated blonde who doesn’t take "no" for an answer. When her boyfriend dumps her for someone more "serious," Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. After turning Broadway and MTV hot pink, this Feel-Good Song and Dance Juggernaut (New York Magazine) is The Best New Musical Around!
