STANTON â€” At least three times a year, the sleepy West Texas hamlet of Stanton becomes the epicenter of the shopping world. Old Sorehead Trade Days returns Saturday and Sunday.
According to officials with the city of Stanton, a dizzying array of vendors â€” hocking everything from antiques to the latest fashions â€” will descend on the town for the weekend-long event.
