We were faced with a difficult decision Friday night. Yard-saling around town or fleaing-across-Florida on Saturday? We chose to Flea-Across-Florida. “Flea-Across-Florida?” you may be asking yourself? Flea-Across-Florida is what is suppose to be Florida’s 3rd Annual longest flea market/yard sale extending 270 miles from Live Oak up to Pensacola along US Highway 90 (April 12-14).
We left Pleasure Island fairly early in the morning heading towards Hwy 90. We stopped at a few thrift shops and snake hunted along the way. We were on Hwy 90 East for 25 miles East of Pensacola (Milton) before we ran across anything that appeared to be a part of Flea-Across-Florida.
Needless to say, we were not very lucky with finds at this tent. From there on out, it was not a continuous flea-market at all. We would drive 5-15 miles between a vendor or small group of vendors participating in Flea-Across-Florida, and it mainly consisted of yard sale JUNK. We drove for 75 miles of the event (this is not including the 32 miles just to get to the start of the Flea-Across-Florida). Within that 75 miles, we did not experience anymore activity than your typical local area Saturday morning yard-sale. By no means are we being negative on the subject (we definitely are excited about what few new items we got for the store http://www.etsy.com/shop/samekvintage). We were unable to find any reviews, therefore we felt compelled to provide you with one (that we know of).
On the flip-side, we thoroughly enjoyed the scenic ride, the free petting zoo, and each others company.
