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.

IMG_1734Keeping 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.
