Florida or Bust

For years I have heard that Florida has the best vintage, yet every time I travel there I return empty handed. I thought it was just me, but had mentioned to me that she had the same experience. If any of you have some secret Florida vintage shopping  locations that us nonresidents are not aware of please spill it.

With exception to a few antique shops on Dearborn in  Olde Englewood and this amazing vintage jewelry booth inside the Dome Flea Market. Shopping was a bust.


I did manage to pick up this ring as a little vacation souvenir:

  6. There is no good vintage to be found at Florida thrift stores or flea markets. Believe me, I’ve tried. You’re better off sticking close to home!

    Try Palm Beach on Sunset Ave there is a Salvation Army type place & a couple doors down a consignment shoppe, then ask about any others there are, it’s been 8 years since I lived there , Also Lake Worth had a couple of shoppes as well.Don’t miss the Botanical Gardens on North Military Trail.Most Amazing I have ever seen!Have you ever seen a “sausage tree”??? thhehehe…
