Miami Flea Valentine’s Gift Guide
Oh, yeah. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and everyone’s feeling a mix of excitement, dread, or can’t wait to celebrate self-love. Either way, now’s the time to start thinking of gifts in case you’re a true Miamian and have left it to the last minute. We know the big day’s on Tuesday, but if you can make your loved ones wait a little while longer, why not grab something for them at The Miami Flea on Sunday, February 19th and support a small local business while you’re at it?
From jewelry and candles, to flowers and personalized poems, here’s a guide to the best Valentine’s gifts you can find at the market.
