Events in St. Augustine Florida are soon coming to life because it is soon to be the last Saturdays in October and November and the focus is going to be on the incredible antique shopping opportunities available in the Nation’s Oldest City. On those evenings, the antique district concentrated along San Marco Avenue comes to life with lively street music and endless opportunities to shop for antiques, rare books – even authentic Spanish treasure.
During this monthly event, participating antique dealers provide great workshops covering a variety of antique related topics, book stores provide readings and book signings by local authors, and art galleries feature exhibit openings of some of the finest Florida artists.
Also, only a short walk away, are additional antique discoveries which can be made along Aviles Street – the oldest street in America. Galleries, antique stores and unique shops between Ripley’s Museum and the Mission of Nombre de Dios remain open during this special time. Meet the artists, go to book signings and enjoy live music, refreshments and other events in the party-like atmosphere.
A favorite end-of-the-month event, Uptown Saturday Night takes place from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm the last Saturday in October and November.
The Mission of Nombre de Dios provides FREE PARKING for Uptown Saturday Night and each participating shop features an open house with wine and refreshments that add to the festive night time atmosphere.
Man I got to go there! Why? Because I love antique books. This sounds like the place where these would be a treasure.
Now, how do I get to Florida from here! Got to figure that one out!
