Collins Bay Flea Market is located in a lovely, stand-alone building, surrounded by plenty of free parking close to the waterfront. It is on the fringe of the town and therefore easy to find. This is the oldest flea market in the town of Kingston, Ontario, trading from this same location since the mid-80s. The goal of this market was to offer high-end antiques alongside vendors that sell a bit more in the way of vintage items and other collectibles. This kind of blending of vendors had not really been seen before in this area. Many more shoppers pass through this store as a consequence and there is always something new and interesting to see here.

Collins Bay Flea Market has 6,200 square feet of space to house more than 20 different vendors within. The building is both heated and air-conditioned, so shopping here is a comfortable experience year-round. Recent improvements and renovations to the building have created a very well-organized and bright space. Visitors feel welcomed from the moment they step through the front doors. The layout of the different vendors’ spaces works to showcase the goods on each stand and it is easy to see all the wonderful items on sale. There is no need for rummaging through piles in this store!

At Collins Bay Flea Market, a fantastic variety of items are up for grabs. The vendors stock sports cards, comics, vintage toys, stamps, glassware, furniture, coins, model trains, custom, and vintage jewelry, advertizing memorabilia, chinaware, curios, and more. Questions about items are welcomed as vendors are happy to share their knowledge about their wares and spend some time with fellow antiquing enthusiasts!

Once a year, the Collins Bay Flea Market puts on an antique fair. Extra vendors come from further afield for a weekend during August and set up stalls in the outdoor area surrounding the store. Admission to this is free and it is a great chance to shop from sellers that are not usually in the area. The dates of this weekend vary slightly year on year.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
