Keeping it Chill in August T

o many, the August heat is a time to slow down and relax. It’s a good time to take in some art galleries, catch up on the summer movies or maybe go antiquing. The Canton area has many cool and leisurely options. On Route 44 near the town green is a one block area that boasts 7 antique and vintage shops. Lots of parking and easy walking make the Historic Marketplace a great destination for a mellow afternoon. A good place to start is at The Blue House: Nice Old Things, a large shop filled with recycled and repurposed home furnishings, antique linens and tableware, rugs and the occasional ghost! (Built in 1806, the Blue House has had many sightings and unmistakable spirit vibes.) Walk or drive behind these shops to sample goods from every decade. Vintage and high-end clothing consignment is for sale at The Pink House directly across the street from the marketplace. Nearby is Porter’s Gold Exchange and Antiques which boasts many collectibles and unique finds.
