VIDEO: Florida marine flea market opens today

The Dania Beach Marine Flea Market opens today at the Mardi Gras Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla., with acres of marine “treasures” — used and obsolete parts; used and new boating, fishing and diving gear; excess manufacturer, distributor and dealer inventory; nautical antiques; artwork; and even new and used boats.

The flea market continues through Sunday at the casino, which is located at 831 North Federal Highway. Tickets are $12 today and $10 Friday through Sunday. Children under 12 are free, as is parking. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., except Sunday, when they are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Organizers expect 300 manufacturers, distributors and dealers and many independent flea marketers to fill 1,000 vendor stalls. Started in 1979 at Dania Jai Alai, the flea market moved to the casino last year after the jai alai fronton decided to expand into the parking lot where the flea market had been held.

Active Interest Media, which owns Soundings Trade Only, acquired the flea market, along with the Bahamas Billfish Championship, earlier this year from flea market founder Al Behrendt. His daughter, Jennifer Dudas, continues to manage the event.
