Description:

Every day is a new day at the Station! We have over 90 booths with products moving in and out daily! The tone of the venue is upscale, eclectic! Our goal is to have a variety of interesting home and gift items with a mix of new and old. We can gift box many items and also provide free gift wrapping. There is a central cashier and we are open seven days a week. In addition to the indoor antique and flea market, we have a produce market with a full line of Amish Products and local produce.  We are proud of the history surrounding Floridatown! All the locals in and around Pace Florida have heard stories about the vibrant and noteworthy past of Floridatown. Where Highway 197 (Floridatown Road) ends at the water’s edge of Escambia Bay, you can almost visualize the old ferry that carried wagons, livestock and, of course, people, across the gray-blue waters. You can almost hear echoes of foreign tongues from when the Chumuckola Indians came there to trade with the Spanish. And the balmy breeze seems to buffer what could be laughter from parties that occurred under the majestic oaks that tower still. Hurricanes come and go as do the days but the stories—they linger. Ask an old-timer in Pace and they’ll recant stories about a lively motel and dance hall that was “the place” to be in the early 1900s. They will tell you about an Indian Trading Post where the Chumuckola Indians came to trade with the Spanish. And last but not least you’ll learn about how Andrew Jackson camped at Floridatown after his battle with the British in 1814. There is so much history to tell about this very special area of Florida!Life is fast paced these days. Come bid a wee in Pace. We invite you visit us at Floridatown Station where we’ll be happy to talk with you about yesterday, today and tomorrow!Visit our website www.FloridatownSation.com to see individual vendor's booths and get an idea of what we are about.  If you want to spend a great day just an hour or so from Gulf Shores, AL, or Pensacola, Florida then come visit the 4 Pace antique stores, have a nice lunch at one of our wonderful local restaurants and then close out your day at the Farmer's Opry house listening to country music and having a great southern cooked dinner! Pace is the Place!(We ship & giftwrap and we speak Spanish & sign language)
