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?

Thanks to all the kids, parents, grandparents, friends and family for a wonderful Flea Market!

The Learning Tree's 4th Annual Kids Flea Market

We had great weather and a great turnout for our 4th Annual Kids Flea Market last Saturday.

Lots of kids sold (and bought!!) lots of great toys and kids got the opportunity to donate many toys, books, games and more to Operation Breakthrough. Sister Berta and kids were on hand for the event. They are so grateful for all the donations.

Here are a few photos from the event.

Thanks again to everyone for making this such a fun event each year.

Remember, you don’t have to wait a year to donate to Operation Breakthrough. They can always use your toys, games, books, time and talent to make a difference in a child’s life. Please visit their website to find out more information on the services they provide and how you can help children in need right here in our community.
