Treasure Hunting in Key Largo, for Landlubbers The Florida Keys have always been a haven for treasure hunters. Whether you are scuba diving deep waters in search of shipwreck gold or bargain hunting our unique island shops, nothing quite beats the thrill of finding something special. Key Largo's flea markets are a great place to start. The U-Haul Flea Market at the cut (MM103.5) has seen better days. Twenty five years ago it was on a roll but it has been a downhill roll. The market has only a few dealers. The manager explained to me that people are renting storage space just to store items they sell on Craig's list so there are fewer dealers. The good dealers left are Jack's Used Bicycles and the lovely Merle, who has the most delightful, gently used clothing at her charming shop called Lunatique. The downside is that the location is hot and dusty, it‛s hard to park, among the trailers, and walking among the pot-hole, rocks and boulders is treacherous. It is open Friday thru Sunday but only a few of the dealers open every week. The Lion's Club Flea Market, open Sundays only, can be hard to find. Look for it oceanside at the traffic light at MM 100, behind the bank. There is a wide range of mostly new items there in the parking lot. It stretches around the corner and down a busy road. Be careful walking with children and watch for traffic. Get there before 2 or you'll miss it! The Island Market Mini Mall located at MM 102 inside/outside the Dollar Tree Shopping complex is by far the best and most versatile and rewarding shopping experience on the island. Outside there is a food court, car wash, fresh fruit and vegetable market, seafood market (fresh from the fishermen!), vapor dealer, orchids, flowers and plants, lawn statues an antique/ thrift shop and a teak furniture outlet. Sometimes there are vintage cars on display. Inside and behind the Dollar Tree Store you will find a mini mall with 11,000 sq. ft. of air-conditioned shopping comfort. The bathrooms are spacious and everything is sparkling clean. February 2015 • The Coconut Telegraph • 7 Everything imaginable solar! Beautiful fish carvings.
