2019 Kids Flea Market

The 11th Annual Learning Tree Kid’s Flea Market
Corinth Square Shopping Center
Saturday, May 25th
$10/Kid’s Flea Market Ticket

Calling all young entrepreneurs! It’s time to register for your space at the Learning Tree Kid’s Flea Market.

Here’s your chance to run your own business for a few hours and to do a little spring cleaning in the playroom. Families work together to plan, decorate and set up their reserved area on Flea Market morning – creating fun, kid decorated “booths.”

Kid-trepreneurs sell their outgrown and gently used toys, books and games. Some sell their handmade crafts. They price their merchandise, offer bargains and handle the money!

It’s a family neighborhood event whether you are selling or buying. Best part? When the flea market closes, any unwanted items will be loaded on to the Operation Breakthrough truck and donated to other kids in need.

Your $10 registration ticket provides:

  • A reserved “booth” spot (approx. 6′ x 6′ of space)

  • Promotion for the event to get lots of customers to your “booth”!

  • A $10 coupon to be used in the store on Saturday, the 25th!

  • A chance to make some spending money, to raise funds for a charity, or to put a little something away for a rainy day!

  • The opportunity to leave unsold items as a donation to Operation Breakthrough!

We love being your local, neighborhood toy store. That’s why this family-friendly, community happening has become our favorite event of the year!

We reserved our space for the flea market...now what?
