Thanks for the info Fumar

My wife is the shopper and we have been to Markets of Marion many times.

Looking for more distant places - like within about 50 miles or so that have regular open dates. Have you heard of anyplace in Gainsville? (the drive up 441 to Gainsville is a nice trip)

There is a Chinese restaurant on 441 a mile south of the university on "Bivens Arm" lake that was interesting and the food was fine for lunch. The museum on the campus was worth and admission too - a nice day trip.

Try the flea market at Webster, FL (about 30 mi south)
Very large, rummage, antique & stuff like Marion.

Thanks for the info.

I believe someone mentioned that Webster was a lot of walking around and not much worth buying (but, I am sure my wife will have to see for herself)
