Location: The Town of Carleton Place
Every Sunday or so I enjoy taking a road-trip to a different town and scavenging all the Antique and Used Clothing stores I can find. Today, it was the picturesque Carleton Place on the Mississippi River. Upon arrival I was surprised by the amount of shops/businesses on the main drag (Bridge Street) in the historic part of town.
I took a stroll and paid a visit to Brush Strokes where I purchased a striking necklace (see photo) and received extremely friendly service. If you appreciate interior design you will adore this space that has original inventory displays featuring local artisan work and a little bit of everything from art supplies, crafty jewellery to funky gift ideas. They also had a few sporadic antiques in store for sale that quickly caught my eye.
Keeping in mind on Sundays not every business is open we drove three miles and landed at Murray’s Furniture and Flea Market. The second I walked in I was intrigued by the variety of new & used items and low prices. Vintage and collectible toys, antiques, furniture and an assortment of records and DVDs galore. I have not seen such diverse Transformers, Nascar Merchandise, Trading Cards and Glassware under one roof. For more on the vendors visit flea market website.
I always laugh on the way home because I always say, “I won’t buy anything” on my way to these towns however generally always leave with something I can easily justify by saying ” I will never find it again”. In most cases my remark is true as most of the stuff is one of a kind.
If you are looking for a fun-filled few hours or trying to find that antique collectible I suggest you pay a visit to one or both of this spots.
