This year’s Model Boat Show will continue the tradition of offering consignment sales for the benefit of consignors and shoppers alike. Known as Dock Yard Sales, this is a nautical flea market, operating both days of the show (April 13 – 14) in the lower level of Woods Hole Community Hall.
For consignors, this is a great opportunity to sell any model boat-related items; for buyers, it offers the discovery of unexpected maritime gems.
Proceeds of Dock Yard Sales are split 50 – 50 with the museum so this is a nice way to support your museum and clear out your boat barn or house. Over 80 percent of consigned items sold during past Model Boat Shows!
Consigning at Dock Yard Sales is open to anyone—exhibitors, museum members, and non-museum members. We hope you and your friends will take advantage of this opportunity to consign (or donate) nautical items you no longer need. Examples of consigned items from past years include model boat kits, display models (whole or half), e.g., Herreshoff Buzzards Bay Boys Boat, Dark Harbor 17, Grand Banks Dory, Bluenose II, Boothbay Lobster Boat, HMS Beagle, how-to books, display cases, radio controls, and more.
Prospective consignors should contact Kathy Cooper with questions and/or to advance-register items to be consigned. This will streamline the process. Consignors should plan to drop off their items at the Woods Hole Community Hall on Friday afternoon, April 12th from 3 – 5 pm and reclaim any unsold items at the end of the show on Sunday afternoon.
