St. Pete's Spring Fling Shopping Expo promises a sea of sellers
Spring may be on its last legs, but we’ve still got plenty of fling left in our step. Hence why we should all stop by the Spring Fling Shopping Expo in sunny St. Pete on Saturday to find tons of vendors eager to bestow upon us beautiful and delectable goods.
Early birds will get the worm at this event as the first 100 shoppers will receive free swag bags. The fling benefits the Mr. Strong Foundation, which aims to ensure that “no special needs child be denied therapy services due to financial constraints and or lack of insurance coverage.”
Dozens of vendors — such as Origami Owl, Usborne Books, the Littlest Woodchuck, Max Loves Stella, Mama’s Whoopie Pies, Perfectly Posh and McCuutie’s Dog Boutique — will gather to sell clothing, jewelry, handcrafted decor, crafts, baked goods and more.
All sellers will donate an item worth $25 for a special giveaway at 1 p.m., with raffle proceeds going to the Mr. Strong Foundation. It's happening from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at Gladden Park Recreation Center, 3901 30th Ave. N, St. Petersburg. Free admission; $1 for individual raffle tickets, $5 for six.
