Across Florida October means Florida’s extensive and popular flea markets are starting to expand as snowbird and vacationing vendors double the number of shops. There are some great antique and collectible markets like Mount Dora, but to me nothing beats the bimonthly Sunday showcases on exclusive Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.
The Lincoln Road Antique and Collectible Market attracts some 125 vendors who feature stock clothing, collectibles, and “one of a kind items” from the 1920’s to the 1960’s. Vintage Gucci and Fiorucci clothing still on a table next to 1950’s early rock and roll 45s.
The entire western side of Lincoln Road from the 800 to 1000 blocks is turned into a laid back atmosphere that attracts buyers from across Dade County. There are lots of Sunday restaurants along the way – even a sports pub to send away the menfolk for the NFL games.
Get there early. You’ll find some of the top buyers arriving at 8 am since Lincoln Road is a good place to outfit your Art Deco Miami Beach condo with original pieces and funky furniture.
When are the showings? You can go to their website or just circle October 26, 2014, and then jump every other Sunday all the way to May of next year. The website is http://www.antiquecollectiblemarket.com.
