Celebrating the Sunshine State's Unique Treasures


Misc. Musings


This is where we share stories that do not fit into one of our main Authentic Florida categories. 

By the way, you will see the Florida Orange Bird in a lot of our social media posts and occasionally on our website. He is our unofficial mascot and traveling companion. We do not sell Florida Orange Bird, but if we find one at a flea market or antique store, we will purchase it and put it on eBay since it seems whenever we post a photo of Florida Orange Bird someone messages us and asks if we are selling them. Make sure you are following our social media pages to stay in the know.
