I will be down in the Baldwin/Franklin/New Iberia area in early March and was wondering if there are any thrift/second hand stores(Salvation Army or Goodwill type) or fleamarkets in that area? Anything within say 20 to 25 miles. Thanks.

There's a Goodwill on Admiral Doyle Drive in New Iberia, also about 3 Goodwill stores in Lafayette, and a Salvation army. There is also the Jockey Lot Flea Market open on Saturday & Sunday's only (quite a lot of vendors with nice things there) in Lafayette off of I-49 Just north of I-10 between Exit 2 & 3 I believe. Its about 25 miles north of New Iberia. You may also want to Visit Crossroads Antiques its in Opelousas there are some great buys in there more than just Antiques, its about 20 miles north of the Jockey lot at Cresswell Lane exit 18 off of I-49, there is also a Goodwill at the same Exit.

There are no St. Vincent De Pauls, The ones similar to their mission is probably ARC of Iberia, Google them they have a website. There are 11 Retail stores located in the Acadiana Area. Lafayette, New Iberia, Opelousas and I believe Morgan City has a location. They are consingment thrift stores.

In March the weather will be beautiful 65 - 80 for highs, lows 50-60 with little or no Humidity , There are days with hit and miss showers (scattered), but it should be comfortable.

The Jockey lot Flea market is open year round on Saturdays & Sundays, it has an indoor and outdoor section, the outdoor area is covered, due to our summertime monsoonal rains. The weather should be good so their may be alot of vendors there the indoor vendor are always full.
The Salvation Army store is located on N Chestnut street & Third or Second Street (cant remember which one) in downtown Lafayette.
The ARC of St. Landry store in located on N Union Street not far from the GoodWill. The Crossroads Antiques doesn't have much clothes, mostly house hold items ex. Furniture, glassware, toys lots of different stuff of the past. Its nice to browse around in there you'll probably be saying " Oh I used to have one of these".

South of New Iberia (Franklin to Morgan City) I don't know much of whats offered there, As I spend most of my time in Lafayette, Opelousas & New Iberia and lived in all these cities and some point in time. I dont recall were the ARC of Iberia store is located but there # is on there website you can probaly call and they will give you the locations of all their stores.

Too bad you can't come in the next two weeks to experience our Cajun Mardi Gras, I find it better than New Orleans and a lot less rowdy if you know what I mean.

Hope you enjoy your Visit & Welcome to Louisiana Cher ( Cher definition = "dear" pronunciation "sha")

(mais cher dat be good) a bit of Cajun Humor, Check out Acadianaliving.com they have definitions to alot of cajun talk.

I am hoping they know where they are. The fleamarket sounds great. Ours don't open until April or May. The weather will be nice to. I need abreak from the Michigan cold, although it is actually starting to warm up.Looking forward to trip.
