Opa-locka Flea Market Has That Special Something
If you happen to be up Opa-locka way, don't forget to pop into the embattled flea market. (The city has repeatedly made efforts to shut the place down for a slew of code violations and the owner, Scott Miller, has made numerous pledges that he will fight them to the last man).
In any case, there's a stand there on Row O, run by a Pakistani father and son. If you're tired of getting painful glances from your nieces and nephews for bringing them Learning Channel bullshit and socks, why not slide 'em a brutal weapon -- battle axes, butterfly knives, knives welded to brass knuckles with individual spikes on the knuckles. I strongly suggest you get up there. The staff is extremely friendly and the prices are right on. -- Calvin Godfrey
