Marine Consignment Stores in Florida

I need a break from the ice and snow. I am driving down to Florida next week and wanted to know of any marine consignment stores in Florida. I've been to one in Riviera Beach called the Sea Chest, and one in Nokomis called the Natical Trader. Does anyone know if they are still in buisness?


Thanks for any information

I dont know how I forgot sailorman. There is also a place in Miami that has some nautical stuff. I've been there a couple of times but the name escapes me. It's the kind of place you need a flashlight and you get pretty dirty rooting around. They sell alot of other antiques and odd stuff aswell.?????????????????

Sue, have you been to this one? Do they have alot of stuff? Are they reasonable in their pricing?
It seems we have the same last name. Maybe were relatives. Any chance you are extremely wealthy and looking for lost heirs to leave it to?

Well, i was there a few years ago-- some great stuff on consignment in this interesting town. This was a comfortable place with nice people and dog friendly too. And yeah, we probably are related via brian boru, but all my money is tied up in my boat

The captain and I have been to Sailor's Exchange in St. Augustine. There is a LOT of stuff, but be prepared to spend some time digging through it all. The place is not very big, but it is crammed to the rafters! Better take a list.....it is easy to get distracted! The staff there is very helpful.
And St. Augustine is always great!

Re: Marine Consignment Stores in Florida

There is a great marine consignment store in Stuart, FL. It has been reopened by the original owner Joe Cloutier. The new name of the company is call Nautical Pickers. Plus he has a canvas shop - Jo's Canvas. Mr. Cloutier has over 27 years experience in these fields. If you have time, you should really stop in and see that store! Great People!, Great experience for me! 4791 SE Dixie Hwy, Stuart, FL 3499 ph# 772-341-4643
