FORT MYERS, FL, AUGUST 18, 2019 — Congratulations to Danny Brown, who took home well-deserved employee-of-the month recognition from Fleamasters Fleamarket.

He has a lot of pride in the work that he does, and is a hard worker and dedicated employee. But more than that, he’s one of our family,” says Donna Matthew, General Manager. “We love having Danny here, and are pleased to be able to celebrate his achievements this month.”

Old Vinyl Lives Again at Fleamasters

There have almost always been those who stayed loyal to old record albums, claiming music CDs and digital music can’t match thewarmth and depth of old fashioned vinyl.

These vinyl loyalists, plus a new audience of record collectors (many of them born after the age of CDs), have made old vinyl a hot collectible. Some pick up the albums for the music, others for the iconic cover art.

While he doesn’t have them all displayed at the same time, George Powers says he’s amassed over 10,000 used LP albums to sell at Fleamasters Fleamarket, Green 86. Most albums are only $2 each, though some have brought up to $60. “Once in awhile I pick up a Beatles album,” George says, “and those are worth more.”

Though George offers every genre, his own love is country music. The easiest way to find him is by listening for the rich vocals of Charlie Rich or Tom T. Hall echoing down the aisle — along with his hands down favorite, Johnny Cash. The albums are played on boxy, old console stereos that add to the vintage sound and charm. George figures that he’s been selling odds and ends at Fleamasters for about 25 years. “I love the people. Talking to my regulars, and meeting new people,” George says. “It’s my retirement job… and it keeps me going.”

From vinyl records to glassware to clothing, you’ll find an array of used and vintage items at Fleamasters Fleamarket; plus hundreds more owner-operated stores selling new retail items. In the summer, market hours are Fridays 9 to 3, Saturdays and Sundays 9 to 5, rain or shine.

Get Your A-1 Smile Back… at a Flea Market!

Mary Kay Pinch will greet you with a dazzling white smile. It’s no wonder, because smiles are her business and her passion. Mary Kay is the owner of A-1 Smile Teeth Whitening at Fleamasters Fleamarket, Blue 70, 4135 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd., Fort Myers. Why get your teeth whitened at a flea market?

According to Mary Kay, “It’s cost effective. You won’t have to pay for the high overhead of a dental office. You’ll get the same whitening service at a better cost.” To whiten teeth, A-1 offers a carbamide peroxide product that’s activated by cool LED lighting. “Carbamide peroxide is a slow release product,” Mary Kay explains, “It takes about 10 minutes longer, but it’s pain-free… there’s very little chance of sensitivity.”
The two-step process they use is another advantage. After whitening, A-1 applies a sealer to help remineralize and rehydrate your teeth. So there’s no waiting period — you can drink coffee and eat regular food right after getting your teeth whitened.

Mary Kay believes her 20-plus years as a dental hygienist is an important factor, and it helps her establish a great rapport with customers. “If I see something going on in their mouth, I’ll recommend that they see a specialist,” she says. “I’ve always loved being a hygienist, and I especially love the opportunity to educate people, to help them make better decisions about the health of their mouth. Ultimately a healthy mouth means a healthier body,” she adds.

“We’re all getting older. Our hair turns gray and our teeth get darker. I can help you keep a great smile. And a great smile can help take the years away.”

Mary Kay is getting ready to start her third year of business at Fleamasters. She has many repeat customers, and others stop in after seeing her storefront in the market. No appointment is necessary.

From teeth whitening to tailors to locksmiths, you’ll find an array of handy services at Fleamasters Fleamarket. Plus hundreds of other small, owner-operated retail stores. In the summer, market hours are Fridays 9 to 3, Saturdays and Sundays 9 to 5, rain or shine.
