Annual Harbor Nautical Swap Meet Draws Seekers and Bargain Hunters

SANTA BARBARA— The eagerly anticipated 13th annual Harbor Nautical Swap Meet is set to unfold at the Main Harbor Parking Lot from 8 a.m. to noon May 18. Boasting a bustling atmosphere and a vast array of marine and nautical treasures, the event promises to attract hundreds of attendees in search of bargains and rare finds.

From boat rigging to surfboards, fishing gear to inflatable boats, pumps to winches and everything in between, the swap meet will feature dozens of products from vendors showcasing a diverse selection of marine-related items. Whether you’re a seasoned sailor looking to upgrade your equipment or a novice seeking to outfit your vessel for the first time, there’s bound to be something for everyone at this maritime extravaganza.

There’s more than just a chance to peruse the merchandise. Complimentary coffee and other refreshments will be provided, offering a welcome respite for shoppers as they navigate the aisles in search of their next great discovery.

For those with nautical gear gathering dust in their garages, the swap meet offers an excellent opportunity to declutter and turn unwanted items into cash. Interested sellers can secure a spot as a vendor for just $25, granting them access to a prime location to display their wares.

Applications for vendor spaces can be obtained from the front counter of the Harbor Master’s Office or downloaded online. Completed applications, along with payment, should be submitted to the office to secure a space. It’s worth noting that payments are non-refundable and must be made in cash or by check payable to the “Harbor Merchants Association.” Spaces will only be reserved upon receipt of payment, so early registration is encouraged to avoid disappointment.

Whether you’re in the market or looking to offload surplus gear, the Harbor Nautical Swap Meet offers a unique opportunity to make connections, snag a bargain and celebrate all things nautical. So, mark your calendars, gather your crew, and set sail for a morning of adventure at the harbor swap meet.
