If you are pre or post cruising, and find yourself, NEEDING to shop as I do...my Mass license plate is Shop*r, drive up a few exits off 95, and hit the Festival Flea Market.
Here is the link! http://festivalfleamarket.com/
This place is a shoppers dream. For years I was an Island perfume shopper, but no more. The prices here are so much better it's amazing, for example, once, in St thomas I bought Fantasme, by Ted Lapidus..$54.00..At the Festival, it was $23.00.
The also have great handbags, boutiquey kind of clothing, toms of great costume and sterling jewlery and bargain watches galore!
My May Visit to Florida,which is low season, brought even more deals. There is a food court there, with the "Best Knishes EVER!" Do yourself a favor and save some money for this shoppers paradise!!
Trip, with her book & tea!

We're cruising in Feb--a group of 7 of us and our ship docks in Fort Lauderdale and we're flying out of Miami that evening. We've rented a large van for the day and are planning on going to Festival. Do you know how far Festival is from the port? (Princess) and how late Festival stays open on Saturdays? We share your passion for shopping!
