In the heart of Stanton, Texas, amidst the bustling energy and the warm, inviting community, lies a tradition that has captivated the hearts of many: the Old Sorehead Trade Days.

Since 2018, Cate's Concepts has been a proud participant in this vibrant marketplace, offering our exclusive collection of handcrafted wooden jewelry to attendees from near and far.

The Legacy of Old Sorehead Trade Days

The story of Old Sorehead Trade Days begins with a name that piques curiosity. Legend has it that the nickname "Old Sorehead" was affectionately given to the town of Stanton by its residents, embracing a term of endearment for those known for their stubborn pride and enduring spirit. This spirit is reflected in the inception of the trade days, which have grown from a small gathering of local vendors to an expansive event attracting thousands of visitors each year.

Held thrice annually, on the second weekends of April, June, and October, Old Sorehead Trade Days transform the streets of Stanton into a lively marketplace. Here, artisans, crafters, and entrepreneurs from across the region come together to showcase their talents and wares, celebrating the community's rich history and vibrant culture.
