Joyce Johnson has been attending the antique show every year since it started; her favorite part, she said, is that she finds new vendors and treasures each time. This year, she focused on the colored pencil drawings by artist Holly Peet.
TARPON SPRINGS – In the soft drizzle of a rainy Saturday morning Feb. 8, dozens of vendors and buyers crowded the parking lot at the corner of Alt. 19 and Tarpon Ave. for the Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce’s annual Antique and Treasure Sale.

One table overflowed with cutlery and glassware. Another offered paper mache geckos and herons. A third promised time travel through cinema, boxes of DVDs selling everything from Lizzie McGuire to Cruel Intentions.

Yvonne Sullivan featured baskets wrapped in red ribbon from her company Gifts of Love, a Valentine’s Day offering of teddy bears and chocolate. This antique sale was her eighth year participating in the Chamber’s event.

“It works great because it’s just in time for the holiday,” Sullivan said. “And I just love interacting with all these people.”

Along Tarpon Ave., 18 food trucks lined the street, filling the area with the whir of generators and the scent of everything from cupcakes to Alaskan salmon, for the Tarpon Springs Merchants Association’s Food Truck Rally.

Michael Blasco, the CEO of Tampa Bay Food Truck Rally, said he’s seen the popularity of food trucks in the area grow exponentially since the first rally in 2011, increasing from 15 trucks to nearly 100.

“There’s one piece of advice I always give people trying to start a food truck: offer something unique,” Blasco said. “The more unique, the better.”
