Find Your Treasure at the Cortez Yard Sale
Have you ever been to the village of Cortez, Florida? It is one of the oldest fishing villages in the state. Cortez Village is a National Register of Historic Places community that has worked hard to preserve its unique Florida Gulf Coast Heritage. March 13 would be a great day for you to visit this historic village. There will be a Village Yard Sale that Saturday!
On your way to the beach or on your way home, stop by as there will be some great arts and crafts for sale. You will have so much fun searching through a great amount of trash & treasures!
There will be nautical equipment, cast net fishing gear, garden tools, tables full of children’s toys, lamps, moving blankets, knitted/crochet items, totes, backpacks, books, cookbooks, knit & crochet, hand crafted jewelry, purses, masks, acrylic painted items and so much more!
And there will be great snacks and yummy goodies, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, popcorn and mor to munch on!
Local Artists: Linda Molto will have tables displaying her work. In addition, they now have original pen and ink sketches of Cortez, boats, and animals by Jackie Fulford signed and numbered. Very rare.
FIRST TIME EVER Tour of Boat Yard – Manager Joe will show where and how wooden boats are made and repaired and on display are the Sally Ann and the Cuban refugee boat, Esperanza.
This is going to be a good old-fashioned Cortez “good time!” Proceeds support the Cortez Village Historical Society & the Cortez Cultural Center.
