When we moved to Ft.Lauderdale, on occasion we would pass a place called the Swap Shop. It is the biggest swap meet I've ever seen. It also has carnival rides, an arcade, a farmers market, a car museum and an indoor mall. Oh and a drive in movie theatre. How could this place not be amazing? I had fond memories from my last swap meet so Tyler and I got up oorn Saturday morning and figured we would go check it out and see if there was anything there for us. Like perhaps a replacement for my beloved cabbage patch?
I guess I didn't really remember what a swap meet was like. I was expecting something like the fair, not like a giant yard sale but that is what we found. Just a few examples:
|Cars with people selling stuff out of the trunks|
|Lingerie anyone? Really? Do people by lingerie from a swap meet?|
|Toys from someone garage. Owen loved it.|
|These actually would have been so fun but they were pretty trashy. |
I think we'll wait to get one from an actual store.
|I don't even know what this is. Just boxes full of someone's crap. |
This was what most of the swap meet was.
This is Uncle Bernie. I think he is supposed to make you excited about the rides outside. Owen loved him. He totally creeped me and Tyler out.
There was also a water ride. We didn't ride on this one:
One last thing... what is a swap meet without a large icee? mmmm... yumm.
