The Bayside Socialites and Men's Clubs are proud to announce that their annual two-day Bayside Estates Flea Market is just days away, taking place Friday and Saturday, Feb. 6 and 7, at the community clubhouse, 17601 San Carlos Blvd. This is an annual event that's been a tradition for 20-plus years within the community, and promises hours of shop-til-you-drop action for bargain-hunters, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday; and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.

"We have been collecting and storing all year from our residents and over 40 homes were sold over the last year, which means a lot more redecorating was going on, so we'll have even more great items this year," said Debbie Wescoat, co-charwoman of the Bayside Socialites.

Uncover treasures with literally hundreds of thousands of items to look through from the 600-home community, along with drinks, refreshments, lunch, gift baskets and raffle prizes.

"We'll have a basket raffle, which includes a flatscreen TV, donated by our Realtors at Coastal Brokerage LLC, and a special mystery basket,"?Debbie added. "Also, our sewing club has a raffle with a queen-size quilt for first prize, and second and third prizes are lap quilts all handmade by the club."

Bargain-hunters can peruse the very well-planned and organized sale that's been organized according to category and department, including books, jewelry, crafts, glass and collectibles, women's clothing, men's clothing, linens, games and toys, electronics, household, small appliances, furniture big and small, garden, tools, outdoor accessories, seasonal decor and many more.

Bigger items for sale and consignment may include cars, boats and golf carts.

All that bargain-shopping can raise quite an appetite; be sure to chow down at the clubhouse kitchen, where you can enjoy some homemade baked goods, homemade chili, hot dogs and plenty of other good eats, along with fresh produce and vegetables.

Funds raised go toward the maintenance and upkeep of the 55+ community, as well as for some charity endeavors the clubs work with throughout the year.

Parking is free and available in the well-organized lot outside of the clubhouse. One of the Men's Club volunteers will direct you to a spot. Handicap pick-up and drop-off at the clubhouse door is available, too. Just follow the signs. This sale will go on rain or shine, so, start prepping for another fun bargain hunt that's right around the corner.
