Everything Old is Cool Again
This Event is Perfect for Lovers of Antique, Vintage and Retro Styles.
If you're the sort of person who says, "They don't make 'em like they used to" or you have a special collection that's always growing, come along to the Albion Antique and Collectables Fair. The fair takes place at Phillip Harris Sports Centre on the St Margaret's Anglican Girls School campus from 10am from Friday 23rd of June through to Sunday 25th.
The Albion Antique and Collectables Fair will have something for everyone: from traditional furniture to modern contemporary, specialty silver and jewellery to good quality bric-a-brac, clocks, alongside the rare and unusual. The dealers will be exhibiting pieces never seen before in Brisbane. Plus, you can attend information sessions on a variety of subjects so you can learn more about the antiques and collectables on show.
The event organisers have a special exclusive in store too. They are pleased to announce, "The World's first showing of the newly released Australian Design Moorcroft Pottery. These Australian iconic designs were mentored by Robert from Roundabout Antiques, Toowoomba, and with his encouragement, manufactured in limited numbers for sale, by the world's respected Moorcroft factory, which has been releasing world class pottery items since 1915."
Moorcroft won't be releasing the collection in Australia until August, so this is a rare chance to talk to Robert about the pieces and buy one of the limited editions before they are sold out.
Well respected furniture restorer Brenton Kinnears will be giving practical demonstrations.
Rob Neilsen from Roundabout Antiques will be giving a talk on Moorcroft and the collection of fine porcelain.
Albion Antiques will be discussing the need to properly catalogue your collection.
Albion Antique Auction Centre will advise on how to dispose of one item or a whole collection by auction.
There'll be plenty of amazing items to view and buy over the three-day event. Light refreshments will be available on site too, so you can keep your strength up for all that browsing and buying! Click here to get a sneak preview of some of the beautiful items on offer.
You don't need to arrive in an antique style horse and buggy. Street parking is available on Lapraik Street (where over 40 cars can park) or Butler Street (where over 100 cars can park). Public transport is also convenient to the event. Just jump onto the Translink Journey Planner website to plan your trip.
Tickets are available online at $10 per person or $18 for a family pass. My partner and I can't wait to attend this event. Our home has a few antiques and collectables and we love watching Antiques Roadshow and Bargain Hunt so it's right up our alley. Hopefully we'll see you there!
