Antiquing & Flea Markets
Nothing Could Be Finer than to Shop in Carolina

Everyone loves to peruse flea markets and antique fairs for "finds." One of the best places is in North Carolina at Charlotte, NC. On a monthly basis, the Charlotte Antique & Collectibles Show has a wealth of bargains and one-of-a-kind finds, along with some pricier antiques. Two times a year, the show holds an extravaganza. So many gems, so little time..

One thing is sure, though. You'll have a blast meandering through the aisles of stuff. After all, you probably need another must-have treasure for your home! Take a look at freelance writer Mary Mihaly's personal visit to the Charlotte show. Her antics with friends bring the antiquing experience to a personal level.

Let's hit the road to Charlotte!

Antique Heaven: Webb's in Lake City, FL

When I want to look at antiques or collectibles I like to go somewhere that has everything. One of my favorite spots to stop whenever I pass through north Florida is Webb's Antique Mall. It's just off I-75 at Exit 414.

More than 300 dealers display their wares - everything from glassware to furniture, toys to Americana. People can spend hours in the mall or just one half hour, depending what they're looking for and how much time they have.

If you like antiques and are driving within north Florida on I-75, get off and browse the wares at Webb's. Chances are you might find a treasure.
