    Montage: Handcrafted Decorative Signs

    by TravellerMel Written Dec 7, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The colorful signs in the window caught our eye, and when we walked in, my friend spied two WWII-era Navy recruiting poster images (she is retired Navy) that she has been trying to find for quite some time. These are nice, wood plaques and she was thrilled! They have EVERYTHING here - Florida & Conch Republic themed, military, bar/pub, naughty, pets, Coca-Cola, Harley Davidson, Hollywood - you name it. A very cool store indeed.

    What to pay: The plaques Lisa bought were $21.99 each, plus tax.

    Fast Buck Freddies: Exotic Key West Shopping Emporium

    by TRimer Written Jan 17, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Joe and I wanted to buy a thank you gift for my parents for letting us stay with them in Boca and for letting us use their car to drive to Key West. We stumbled unto Fast Buck Freddies and ended up buying them a large cermanic frog for out by the pool.

    The place has tons of interesting furniture and home accessories in addition to clothing. Over the years it has become famous for its window displays and is often referred to as the "Southernmost Bloomingdales".

    Fast Buck Freddie's was founded in 1976 by Bill Conkle and Tony Falcone. The name came from the first gold record of the group Jefferson Starship - Red Octopus. It is the name of one of the cuts on the album. The concept was a place for folks who reside in Key West to buy fun furniture and clothing to fit their Key West lifestyle.

    What to buy: The frog we purchased cost around $60. They have expensive items, such as a stone buddha statue for $325. And inexpensive items, such as a "5 O'Clock Somewhere" T-shirt for $25.

    What to pay: If you are truly looking for a bargain check out Half Buck Freddie’s - this is where they send all the merchandise that they cannot sell at the regular store. It is a little secret on the corner of Caroline and William streets. They have great deals on a wide selection of interesting items from candles to accessories and decorations.

    Route 1: Anything and Everything

    This is not for one particular shop, but for everything. There are hundreds of shops on and around Duval Street. You'll get better prices off Duval Street, but it's fun to wander around window shopping too.

    Route 1: Decent vendors on Duval St.

    by tpangelinan Written May 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    T-Shirts, Beach Towels (2 for $25.00) They are huge, and they are embroydered, not iron ons!

    What to buy: Low pressure salesmen. They will not nag you into buying something, which made them outstanding in our book! We like to be left alone to shop. They were around when we needed them, but low-key.
