Extravagaza Antique/Flea Market

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
Last weekend Steve and I went to Mt. Dora for the Extravaganza.  The HUGE antique market is  held three times per year.  Over 1400 dealers set up in the fields and open air pavilions. In  addition, there are over 200 permanent dealers housed in several buildings.  Those dealers are open every weekend.   We spent seven hours at the market, only stopping for a quick lunch. Steve and I walked, and walked, and walked and we probably only saw about half of the dealers.

You may remember back in November I bought a giant clam shell at the Extravaganza.
No shells came home with me this time (though I did look) but I did get a couple of great
things there.  I have a birthday coming up in a few days and Steve told me to pick out
something I want.

Does my honey know me, or what?

I’ll be back to show you what we bought soon.  In the meantime enjoy pictures of the

Here’s Steve carrying one of our purchases.

Note to self:  Next time remember you are in Florida and pack sunscreen. Sunburns
are not fun!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. DEMIJOHNS!!!!!!! And gren bottles!!! I sure wish I had been there!!! Is this extravaganza done at the same time every year??? My sister lives very close to Mt. Dora so if I knew ahead of time I would go stay with her and go to the sale!!!!!!! Can you e-mail me??? Can't wait to see all you got! XO, Pinky

  2. Hi Sherry!!!

    I saw soooo many booths/dealers that I would have visited. I love the cotton clothing that the French stand had.

    Did you get anything else that day? I remember as a teenager being in L.A. and going to a huge 'swap meet.' It was great!!!

    Looks like you had a fun day!!


  3. Ohhhh! Love the rusty crusty urns! I wish that blogs were live….then I could message you and say I'll Paypal you to get those for me…lol Its like a love hate relationship when you see a favorite blogger shopping trip. Love what I see, hate that I'm there.

  4. Oh my Sherry! You hit a nerve! Mt Dora is one of the places I SO want to visit! It's so far from my sister's house in Deerfield but I need to schedule a visit to her and make the effort! When is the next sale?

  5. Sherry, What a fun day. I loved seeing all the booths filled with treasures. I can't wait for flea markets to open here again, but first we will need to get rid of the snow.

  6. Sherry,
    Thanks so much for sharing this show. I have always wanted to go, but it just hasn't worked out…maybe ond day. I LOVE that huge stain glass window…can we say…BEAUTIFUL!!!


  7. What a small world! My hubs and I were in Mt. Dora that weekend also! We live in Tampa and try to hit one of the 3 extravaganza's every year. I actually bought 2 green shutters from the booth selling those! I've already painted them white and plan to hang in my living room! We did SO much walking but it was SO much fun!

  8. What fun! It looks like a good market. I love the pedestal Steve is carrying. I have one that looks very similar and love it! It works in so many places and I wish I had half a dozen more in different sizes. I bet you will love yours! Thanks for sharing your pictures. ~Kristie

  9. Oh, man! I'm so bummed I didn't get to go this year. Looks like they had a true extravaganza of vendors. Thanks for the little glimpse into the fun to be had.

  10. Thank you – I have always wanted to attend one of these. I spied so many "I wants" – I would have to take a strict list and look only for those items – too much temptation.

  11. Ooooooh, I want to go!! Looks like Heaven at that Flea Market. I think I've pinned some things from Paris Rags (in one of your photos)…sounds familiar. Lucky you!! 🙂 Cheers, Catherine

  12. Can't wait to see to see what you got for your birthday, Sherry! The weather looks fabulous and that was in February!!! One of the perks of living in Florida, huh?

  13. You got some great pictures of the Extravagaza! I live less than a half mile from there and go there often. I love that place! I can't ever get out of there without a cart full of goodies! Best durn place ever!
