It’s not that we need a reason to cruise down to the Florida Keys (beyond them being awesome), but if you’re looking for an excuse to go, the 10th annual Big Pine Nautical Flea Market is scheduled from 8 a.m. till 2 p.m. on January 18 and 19.
Bargains usually abound at this sale on all kinds of nautical finds including small boats, motors, fishing gear, snorkeling masks and fins, scuba supplies and yes, of course, colorful crafts and gifts. There are usually about 200 vendors in the open-air marketplace, which you can find at Mile Marker 31 oceanside on Big Pine Key.
Local and regional musicians will be performing throughout the weekend, vendors will have casual food and beverages, and a few raffles will be held. Admission is free, and all proceeds will benefit the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce.
