A FLEA MARKET?? Yepp!! A change of pace BUT NOT a change of interest! Citizens For Florida's Waterways, CFFW, say they host Central Florida's biggest and best Marine Flea Market at Harbortown Marina on Merritt Island, this year scheduled for March 29 and 30, 8:00AM to 4:00 PM.
Not JUST boat stuff. Other vendors show up too.
SOOOO, look at your boats or your skippers boats and make a list of NEEDED items to buy!
Then come to the flea market, buy all the stuff on your list and THEN the fun begins when you buy all kinds of neat stuff you:
• Don’t need now but “might”
• Think looks interesting
• Always wanted to try using, but new is too expensive.
• Think it looks “cute”
• Are convinced to buy by the fast talking Hawker.
• Think it might look silly on your friend’s boat if you can get it installed without them catching you.
I have done all of the above – with no regrets!
YEP! Spend more than you planned, fill your trunk or pickup to the brim, and carry it all home! And it is at a marina with restaurant and bar with a view of the boats from the screened in porch and ten minutes to the Cove in Port Canaveral, maybe stopping to look at the lock to the Atlantic along the way and look at the moorage at Rusty’s with the eye on a future cruise. OK, that’s at least my excuse to go to one of my favorite waterfront decks.
So arrive when you like, maybe 9 or 10sh. It is not so big we will be hard to find each other, but is big enough to be worth the drive.
We will go with the flow, taking a break there, or moseying over to the Cove.
See you there!!
