I don't know of a good one in the keys. Sailorman, in Ft. Lauderdale, is a good one.(350 SE 24th Street).
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316
I used to go in there every couple of weeks when I lived down there. I got some great deals, but you have to go a lot as the inventory is constantly changing.
If you haven't made your plans yet, a good way to go to the Keys is to fly into Ft. Lauderdale (not Miami unless you get a great rate), rent a car, and drive down. It's a slow haul down A1A, but worth it.
For more fun, take Old Card Sound Road either going down or coming back( but fill up with gas first).
Much better than flying over all of the Keys.
