2017 Kid's Flea Market at Corinth Square Learning Tree

The Learning Tree Kid’s Flea Market is a very popular, family friendly, community event that pulls everyone in the neighborhood together!

Whether you set up a family, kid centered booth for selling or shop the market looking for bargains on kid’s stuff everyone is welcome to enjoy the morning!

The Kid’s Flea Market gives kids a chance to run their own business for a few hours and to do a little spring-cleaning in the playroom! With their spot reserved at the Kid’s Flea Market, kids can begin to collect their out-grown and gently used toys, books and games to re-sell and to plan their booth.

Through the years, we’ve seen some very creative booths and merchandising. For the second year, we’ll let you be the judges and cast your vote for BEST BOOTH to add a bit of fun to the day. Handmade signs, banners, or fancy tablecloths are all great ways to make your booth unique and to attract shoppers! The lucky kid winner will get an insiders tour of the Learning Tree and a $25 gift certificate.
