Florida marine flea market returns in January

The Indian River Marine & Auto Swap Meet will be held Jan. 10-11 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Indian River Fairgrounds on 58th Avenue in Vero Beach, Fla.

Organizers said a public auction of boats, watercraft and vehicles is one of the highlights of the event, which has attracted as many as 5,000 boat and car enthusiasts in previous years.

An auction preview begins on Jan. 10, when visitors will be invited to browse a selection of boat and car repossessions, short sales, dealer trades and private liquidations. The auction will begin at 11 a.m. on Jan. 11. Internet and live bidding will be available throughout the auction to help those who otherwise would be unable to attend.

Boat and car fans who want to sell or buy can pre-register at http://seflauctions.com or call 772-242-8498.
