Florida marine flea market opens today

The Dania Beach Marine Flea Market opened today and will continue through Sunday.

The Dania Beach Marine Flea Market opened today and will continue through Sunday at the Mardi Gras Casino in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The gates opened at 9 a.m. as the 26-acre parking lot of the casino at U.S. Route 1 and Pembroke Road once again became a nautical swap shop.

Organizers said private individuals and marine-related businesses are selling used marine equipment, coral-encrusted antiques, new and used boats, fishing tackle, diving gear, marine artwork and other boating-related items at low prices.

“Some shoppers to the Marine Flea Market travel hundreds of miles to find that elusive part for a 1946 vintage outboard motor,” event coordinator Jennifer Dudas said in a statement. “Others are looking for antique fishing tackle. Over the four days, thousands of boating- and fishing-related items are bought and sold through a system of dickering and dealing at a fraction of their retail value.”

Visitors can find antique ships’ clocks displayed next to state-of-the-art marine electronics. New and used scuba gear finds its place in a booth with outboard motors and marine artwork. Organizers said shoppers also can enjoy a wide variety of food and drink as they wander the aisles in search of nautical treasures or a fishing boat.

The flea market will be open until 6 p.m. today. The hours will be the same on Friday and Saturday; on Sunday the flea market will open at 9 a.m. and close at 4 p.m.

The flea market and Soundings Trade Only are owned by Active Interest Media.
