Antique fair returns for all

THERE is something for everyone from coins to old tables and antique lamps to sideboards at this weekend's Antique Fair.

Jeweller Richard Macdonald said he had been coming to the Bundaberg Antique Fair for the past 11 years.

"This is something for the whole family," Mr Macdonald said.

"There are many beautiful and old quality pieces here to view."

Mr Macdoanld said the term antique used to mean 100 plus years but these days was more likely to be 50 plus.

"I've been a dealer for 32 years and am from the Gold Coast but travel with the fairs," he said.

"We will have 1.3 million dollars worth of rings at this fair alone."

Fair organiser Allan Lawson said the fair would also be helping to raise money for the Great Endeavour Foundation Car Rally.

"Money from tickets and the catering will help Donna Smith in her car rally and it's something great to get behind," Mr Lawson said.

"And we are fully booked with 30 to 40 different stalls from the big to the small."

He said 20 years ago the fairs were mainly focused on collectors but now the two-day event would be worth a shopping trip for the whole family.

The fair will be held at Bundaberg Civic Centre today and tomorrow.
