for col­lec­tors

North East Tourist News - - Albury/wodonga -

THE Al­bury-Wodonga An­tiques and Col­lecta­bles Fair is re­turn­ing again in 2014 with a host of new pro­fes­sional deal­ers as well as old fa­vorites.

Or­gan­ised by an­tiques dealer Mick Dal­ton, in con­junc­tion with Wodonga Dis­trict Hos­pi­tal, this event has be­come a great draw­card for col­lec­tors both se­ri­ous and novice alike.

Fe­bru­ary 1-2 will see the Mi­ram­beena Com­mu­nity Cen­tre at Lav­ing­ton trans­formed into an im­pres­sive show­case of an­tiques when deal­ers from all around the coun­try com­bine for the fair.

Tra­di­tion­ally the aim of a fair is to cater for all tastes and in­comes, from the small­est thimble to a grand Vic­to­rian chest.

Prices are com­pet­i­tive and the range of items for sale is enor­mous, en­abling cus­tomers to view many dif­fer­ent deal­ers all to­gether un­der one roof, in­stead of trav­el­ling to 20 dif­fer­ent es­tab­lish­ments.

Ge­or­gian and Vic­to­rian jew­ellery, English and Euro­pean porce­lain, sil­ver, glass, linen, lamps, col­lecta­bles and fur­ni­ture, both rus­tic and tra­di­tional, will be dis­played with great care and pride, the deal­ers them­selves en­deav­or­ing to sup­ply as much in­for­ma­tion as pos­si­ble to help the col­lec­tor.

The Al­bury-Wodonga An­tiques Fair is also a fundraiser for Wodonga Dis­trict Hos­pi­tal who will be pro­vid­ing de­li­cious light lunches as well as morn­ing and af­ter­noon teas through­out the weekend of the fair as well as a raf­fle.

The Al­bury-Wodonga An­tiques Fair is open to the pub­lic from 10am-5pm on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 1 and from 10am-4pm on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 2.

Ad­mis­sion is $8 for adults and in­cludes a lucky door ticket. Ac­com­pa­nied chil­dren are free. There is plenty of park­ing avail­able nearby and wheel­chair ac­cess into the hall.

Mi­ram­beena Com­mu­nity Cen­tre is sit­u­ated at 19 Martha Mews, Lav­ing­ton, (off Moore St) op­po­site the North Al­bury Swim­ming Pool, near the Five­ways shop­ping cen­tre.

For any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion please con­tact Mick Dal­ton on 0428 446 534.

A large ar­ray of lovely items will be on sale at the Al­bury-Wodonga Antiques and Col­lecta­bles Fair.
