Flea Markets at Gibsons Curling Club

Gibsons Curling Club Flea Markets SummerMy favorite summer event kicks off this Saturday at 10 a.m.: Flea Markets at the Gibsons Curling Club.

Every other Saturday, the Gibsons Curling Club curling rink (941 Gibsons Way) hosts what amounts to an indoor garage sale featuring over 50 vendors from the Sunshine Coast.  For $20, vendors rent a table and sell their used wares or homemade creations to the sifting community ( who pays a $1 entry fee).

Think of it as one-stop but multiple yard sale shopping with it’s own snack bar featuring some of the best burgers on the Coast! Plus, it’s a bit more organized than the yard sale where someone throws open their garage door and tosses tidbits on the lawn. Since they paid some green for a table, they are looking to make some.

A hidden benefit of these flea markets is not only sifting for “the find” but also it gives you a chance to interact with fellow Sunshine Coast residents. It creates a forum to exchange pleasantries, talk about unique items and possibly help someone clear out a bit of their clutter while adding new treasures to your collection.

Perhaps that is the true spirit of flea markets —  mixing and mingling with members of our community. Its less about buying items, but more about investing in neighborly relationships.

Sounds like a good investment to me.
