Second Annual Nautical Flea Market Announced by SCMA

October 25th, 2010

The South Carolina Marine Association (SCMA) announces its 2nd Annual Nautical Flea Market to be held
Saturday, October 23rd from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Sportsman’s Island on Daniel Island. The event will be co-hosted by Sea Ray – Scout of Charleston in its parking area. Look for the Big Yellow Building off Clements Ferry Road!

Although we’re told the recession is over, anyone who makes their living on the water or enjoys water-related activities knows that boating has not yet reached recovery mode. SCMA hopes that a good old-fashion flea market will benefit both the sportsmen looking for less expensive equipment as well as marine businesses looking to reduce inventory.

Garage, dock box, boat lockers or storage area overflowing? Surely someone else needs what you can no longer use! Trade your unused or no longer used boating and fishing gear for some cash! Seller space will be assigned on arrival Saturday morning. All types of boating, diving, fishing and sailing gear is welcome but please, no boats larger than dinghies!

Looking for a spare anchor, bimini or propeller? Someone could be unloading just what you need! Plus, the holidays are right around the corner. You might stumble across the perfect gift for your favorite sailor or fisherman at a fraction of the price in a retail store.

Vendor spaces range from $10 to $50. To register and for more information, go online to under Events, call 843-889-9067 or email Proceeds from the sales of vendor spaces will be used to fund SCMA programs.
