Murray's Furniture and Flea Market Opening Day a Success

The Grand Opening day for the Flea Market held at Murray's Furniture and Flea Market in Carleton Place has come and gone. Between 200-400 visitors came through the doors and took part in the opening day festivities. The ribbon cutting, town reeve,  BBQ's, vendors inside and out, as well as media coverage was all on hand for what could not have been a better opening day on a beautiful sunny September Saturday. As many of you know, we were not able to attend the opening festivities for this new flea market venture due to conflicting events scheduled, but we were there in spirit and had a little information booth set up. To our surprise when we took a Sunday drive to visit, we were pleasantly greeted by a thinner booth and setup to find that sales had been made for sparklingexpressions. The community support and the atmosphere at the flea market is one of excitement and fun. It truly is a friendly and family orientated community showcasing many small family run businesses. We took a walk through the indoor section to see the wide variety of wares, crafts, antiques and goods for sale. We even made some purchases ourselves! We would like to offer congrats to Shannon, Patrick, Joyce, Vicki and Matthew on a successful opening weekend. Great Job!

If you would like to see some pictures of the great treasures and finds that can be had at the flea market and you are on facebook, head on over to their group at Murray's Furniture and Flea Market.

If you are looking to visit the flea market, you have 6 days every week to check it out. Mondays they are closed but Tuesday through to Sunday you can find many of the great treasures to be offered. Saturday and Sundays the outdoors vendors set up to give you an even bigger selection of goodies to look through. Many of the crafters and vendors can also be found inside the store throughout the week to offer detailed information on their wares, and services, so you never know what you may find. Come stop by sometime and keep an eye on the sparklingexpressions booth setup inside the flea market, we will be adding new things to it often.

Thank you for dropping by and taking the time to look about our blog. We can also be found on facebook at, sparklingexpressions. As well some of our designs can be found online at our vinyl lettering and decor gallery.
