Yesterday, Ted surprised me with a mini road trip. We went about 45 miles south to make our annual visit to Virginia Bazaar. Virginia Bazaar is the states largest indoor/outdoor flea market. It opened I would guess five or so years ago and it grows a little each year. The flea market has yard sale type vendors out side and more permanent vendors inside the air conditioned building. Ted was lucky and found a bag full of horror movies and I found some Avon that I had been needing.
All in all, Virginia Bazaar is an okay Flea Market, but I'm spoiled. Ten years ago, when my parents moved to Florida, they found an incredible Flea Market called Marion Market. This place is mind blowing. It's a series of hall ways, about 10 -16 of them, connected by a main hall. This place has just about anything and everything you can think of, fresh produce, jewelry, antiques, clothes, gadgets, knick knacks, puppies (I got the world's cutest dog there in 2001) and much much more. If you are ever in the Ocala area of Florida on a weekend, this is a must see experience. It's not flashy and new like Virignia Bazaar, it's old, open aired (but under cover) and not heated or air conditioned, but it's the best Flea Market I have ever been to...Bunny
