The South Carolina Marine Association is rebranding the Carolina Nautical Flea Market it has held for the last two years, and this year is introducing the Nautical Marketplace.

The event is set for Sept. 24 at St. Johns Yacht Harbor, Johns Island, S.C., on the Stono River.

“Everyone — boat dealers, retailers, repair facilities, artisans, boaters — are all still hurting in this economic climate,” association president Rion Salley said in a statement. “We decided to kick it up a notch and have a wider expanse of folks selling used and new items. To make it fun for all there will be food, beverages and music during the day.”

The association invites vendors to bring new, old or used nautical items and collectibles.

A silent auction will take place throughout the day and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund.

There is no admission charge for shoppers. Vendors can click here to register or call (843) 889-9067 or e-mail scmarineassn@gmail.com.
