Saturday’s Community Flea Market a Success

Dozens of vendors took over the senior center parking lot on Saturday.

The annual Murrieta Community Flea Market was held Saturday at the Murrieta Senior Center parking lot. Fifty vendors signed up to sell new and used items.

“I was doing some heavy spring cleaning and heard about the event. I knew it would be a good chance to get rid of some things my son outgrew,” said Jayne Byrne. 

Her son Ryan, 10, concurred, noting there would be more room in the closet for new things.

It wasn’t just about making room for the new; it was also a chance for local businesses to showcase their products. 

“It is a great way for residents to sell their items as well as good exposure for local business owners,” said Krissi Limkemann, senior recreation leader for Murrieta.

Murrieta resident Rose Guierrez, 66, brought her family to the event and was pleased with the variety the market had to offer.

“I especially enjoyed all the antiques,” said Guierrez. “I even found a clock repair service that can fix my grandfather clock.”

The senior center also benefited from the event, with proceeds of the booth rentals going toward new computers. The computers will be used for administrative services, senior use and computer classes for senior residents.

“It is wonderful to be able to see so many creative members in my community,” said Guierrez.

I would like to see a monthly flea market like set up somewhere Temecula, Murrieta that maybe each time benefits some other organization in need of some financial help like the seniors. Its a great idea and I wish I had known about this one before hand, would have loved to go and rummage.

Does the city of Murrieta require a tax license or a fee of any kind to sell at one of these events? thanks.

The cost for booth rental is $15 for one space or $25 for two.
