The 66th Street Flea Market is pure magic. It is one of those places that many do not know about, but when you find it you do not want to tell anyone– you want to keep it for yourself. The 66th Street Flea Market is a smaller market with inside vendors that are friendly and willing to make a deal. The merchandise is good, it is unique and no one charges store prices. This is the sort of market that you will find really cool things like Bob’s Fashion Jewelry, and the vendors bring their kids and dogs with them. There are trendy stores like Maryann’s Records and the Lemere store. I have even heard tell there is a palm reader.

Bob is a jeweler. He has a special medium he works in and it is nothing if not mesmerizing. See, Bob uses prosthetic eyes to make some of his best pieces. Not the usual jewelry to say the least, but it captures its admirers just like a gaze. Probably because his work is gazing, right at you. Bob somehow gets a hold of prosthetic eyes and will custom make any piece of jewelry you would like from your pick of eyes or you may choose from his amazing collection of pre-made pieces. I kind of get the feeling they are choosing you, too.  Slightly creepy and mostly avant garde, the eye jewelry tells a story. Each prosthetic eye was made for a real person to match their good eye, but for some reason, Bob ended up with it. Very interesting and very cool. You may take your pick of Bob’s creations at his flea market kiosk at the 66th Street Flea Market or his online store. You have your choice of eye, metal and design.

There are few places to pick up vinyl in the Tampa Bay area, but Marianne’s has a great selection. Everything from records to CD’s, Marianne has tons. She can even transfer VHS to DVD for you. Come take an hour and peruse her wide variety of music and movies. Pick up movies for less than the cost of renting and find titles you can not find on eBay and other online sources.
