DIGGIN' THE SCENE: Tampa Indie Flea

It's as much about the scene as the shopping during the Tampa Indie Flea. You couldn't ask for a better setting than Armature Works, with views of the Hillsborough River and Tampa's skyline. Then there's the plethora of choices to eat and drink from at Heights Public Market. And the Indie Flea does raise the cool factor with a curated selection of 100 makers with goods including letterpress, vintage wares, leather goods and succulents. Free. 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. 1910 N Ola Ave.
