We opened our first 10ft x 10ft booth at the Stittsville Flea Market in 1983 selling books and records and other various and sundry items.
Over the years we expanded to over 750 sqft and added video games, collectible toys, cds, dvds and tapes. We had to move in 2004 when
the Stittsville Market permanently closed and eventually found similar space at the Antrim market. We had 7 successful years there until it also closed in the fall of 2011.
The idea of a Flea Market in Almonte was suggested during the last month at Antrim and the obvious lure of the centrally located fairgrounds and the picturesque town of over 4000 people was too good to resist. We moved all our stock in November and stored it in the Heritage Hall. Unpacking began in the spring and after a month of setting up we were ready for the opening day on May 6, 2012.
Tales and tunes is an entertainment store. You can find almost any book, paperback or hardcover amongst our inventory of over 10,000. Browse through our records, 33rpm, 45rpm and 78rpm, we have thousands instock and many more in storage and viewable online in our ebay store. We also have hundreds of cds arranged alphabetically by artist and also by genre. Many more cds can be purchased online through our ebay store as well. Over 2000 DVDs are also sorted alphabetically by title. Yes, we even have audio cassette tapes and 8-tracks.
Video games are also a major component of our store. We stock many rare nintendo NES, SNES, N64, Gameboy, GBA, Gameboy SP,
and Gameboy DS games. Also you’ll find collectible Atari, Intellivision, Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, and Sega Dreamcast games. Of course, no video game inventory would be without a large selection of games from Xbox, Xbox 360, Gamecube, Wii, PS1, PS2 and PS3. We also carry controllers for all systems although stock quantities do fluctuate throughout the season. Some systems are available as well, especially NES, SNES, N64, Xbox, PS1 and PS2. Occasionally we have newer systems to purchase as well.
Collectible toys are in stock from Star Wars, GI Joe, 80’s wrestling figures and others from time to time.
