Carrabelle lighthouse introduces vintage flea market

The Crooked River Lighthouse will host an outdoor Country and Vintage Flea Market on Saturday, March 30 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 1975 U.S. 98 West outside Carrabelle.

The Country Markets, held every first, third and fifth Saturdays, added a vintage flea to the upcoming market.

From thrift-store worthy scores to high-end antiques, all are invited to bring their much loved treasures to the market to find them a new home. The market welcomes a diversity of items such as home décor, furniture, vintage jewelry, music, antiques, tools, ceramics and kitchenware, books, art, toys, and gently used clothing. Items just need to be clean and in good condition.

The open-air Country Market will, as always, feature local vendors with gifts and goodies like farm fresh produce, grass fed beef, baked goods including cinnamon rolls, artisan breads, and cookies, batch roasted coffee, art, handcrafted balms and soaps, and handmade goods and craft items.

Guests can also visit the free Keeper’s House Museum to see the new exhibit featuring the historic Fresnel lens and browse inside the gift shop for nautical-themed art, jewelry and souvenirs. In addition, visitors can climb to the top of the lighthouse for a view of the Bay for a small fee.The market is recruiting new and returning vendors. Vendors may sign up at any time, at a cost of $10 a market. For more information, contact 850-697-2732, carrabellelighthouse@gmail.com or www.crookedriverlighthouse.com.
