Day 143 – Sanford’s Nifty Thrifty

Apart from all the awesome galleries, Sanford is a little paradise when it comes to antique, thrift and unique furniture stores. Sanford’s Nifty Thrifty has been around for some years now and recently moved from its former First Street location just a few buildings up west. Here is a quick exterior shot of the new location. Sanford’s Nifty Thrifty is a great store for treasure hunting. You will find lots of furniture,...

Day 142 – Steamboats

I am loving all the historical markers throughout Sanford and am always excited to “discover” a new one and learn about the rich history of our city.

Day 139 – Lower Wekiva River Preserve State Park

The further West you drive on 46 in Sanford, the more rural it gets. I myself live in the ‘burbs on the West end of town. The entrance to the Lower Wekiva River Preserve State Park is located not much further from where I live. Sanford truly offers a big diversity of environments, from historic downtown, to industrial properties, to shopping plazas to suburban neighborhoods to pure wilderness. I love this diversity and...
