Harry started playing guitar as a kid and has previously jammed in several bands. His brother is Keith Warner. Keith is the market’s manager and Keith’s wife Talba is the daughter of Sandy and Esler (Les) Heller who have owned and operated the New Egypt Flea Market Village since 1959.
Here’s a little clip of Harry playing.
The Musician’s Room does it all when it comes to stringed instruments. They design and build new instruments and repair and restore old ones in their onsite workshop. They buy, sell, and consign stringed instruments. They even offer free appraisals.
In addition to selling guitars, banjos, mandolins, basses, and violins, they also offer music lessons to help you learn or improve your playing skills.
We know you didn’t think you could get guitar lessons from an experienced musician at a flea market, but remember, this isn’t an ordinary flea market. It’s a village of shops run by family and friends. So, of course there’s music lessons at the Musician’s room.
You can also catch their Fall Bluegrass Jam October 7th, 2017, same place, under the big tree next to building 6E. After that, in late November, Whiskers will be preparing his shop for the arrival of Santa. He turns a part of his shop into a little North Pole where Santa visits every Sunday during the holiday season.
The New Egypt Flea Market Village is open every Wednesday and Sunday from 8 am to 2pm, year-round, rain or shine. We’re one of the last of the old-time markets featuring 40+ buildings each an independently run shop, plus plenty of table vendors with everything from antiques, vintage toys, furniture, handcrafted goods, homemade jams and jellies, great bargains on new items, and thrifty second-hand finds.
