It's a sad day... our AlumaFlamingo journey is coming to an end. Time to pack up this road show and head back home... back to reality. We said our goodbyes to all our new friends, hoping to meet up again soon on another adventure.
Sarasota Swap Meet
Our campsite at the Sarasota Fairgrounds was positioned right next to the gate that led to the field where the market was set up. It's accessible from Tuttle Avenue near the intersection of Ringling Boulevard. Every Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. vendors of all sorts set up to sell their treasures.
I walked through aisles of tables and tents with antiques, collectibles, crafts, clothing, plants, even this guy <---- who was demonstrating the proper way to use the exercise equipment he was selling.
Ashley makes all kinds of treasures by recycling everyday items. She has a variety of different beer caps to choose from, like Kona, Pacifico and more. If you can't make it to the Sarasota Swap Meet, check out her Etsy shop, AscendingTraAshes, and support local artisans. I've received so many compliments on my funky, recycled earrings! Thanks, Ashley!
Before I headed back to camp, I stopped by the food truck for some fresh squeezed lemonade. I figured Justin could use some refreshment after packing up and hitching Riva to the truck in the hot sun. It was the best lemonade I've ever had... the secret is a little bit of fresh squeezed orange juice. Yum!
As we drove across Florida on State Road 70, I looked behind us through the rear window of the truck and this is what I found <---. I love the way Riva is reflected on the truck's tonneau cover, along with the clouds and shiny aluminum. This photo embodies endless possibilities and the #LiveRiveted lifestyle we love so much.
