MILTON — Florida’s longest yard sale, Flea Across Florida, is coming Sept. 8 and 9, held across the state of Florida along Highway 90 from Pensacola to the East Coast.
For seven years, Flea Across Florida has brought thousands of visitors to small communities across the state on Highway 90, filling up motels, restaurants and small local businesses. It is held every April and September.
This is an opportunity for non-profits, churches, or individuals to hold sales along the route, or to rent spaces to those wanting to participate and set up.
This event is a mixture of individual yard sales, businesses offering specials, and retail vendors. It is a treasure hunt for the thousands of participants looking for bargains or the adventure of traveling along Highway 90 through small communities.
Email Jeanne@jeannedesign.net for more information, or to have a sale site listed on the event Facebook page at no cost. There is a Google interactive map posted on the event Facebook page to inform shoppers of the clusters of participating sites.

"I enjoy seeing the travelers who participate in this event each year, and how much fun everyone has,” Copper Possum Antique Mall owner Kim Macarthy said. “It is such a boost to all the small communities along Highway 90."
