It was at 500 Duval Street, next door to Margaritaville. Open since 1976, it bills itself as a 'tropical' department store and it's one of those unique Key West things. It's unlike any other department store I've ever been in. It's a real loss to Key West.

For many years in the past I thought FBF's was a bit boring. But they seem to have put lots of effort into their design and layout inside and also have great window displays. Or they haven't changed and I am getting old.
Here's some pictures of the store today.
|Fast Buck Freddie's window display features massive flowers of Key West - here a huge paper hibiscus. They have added educational signage about the flowers too which is a good touch.|
