If you've not been to Annerley Junction recently, it's worth heading to the South side to see what's on offer. About 10 years ago, the area was in decline and many shops were empty as shoppers headed for major meccas which have sprung up close by in the suburbs. These days, the shops are all occupied with funky, interesting indie businesses which offer anything from vintage and antique furniture to handmade jewellery and second hand comics.

This year is the third annual Annerley Junction Christmas Fair which is again supported by Annerley Community Plus, a non-profit organisation which supports Annerley locals and traders. There will be craft market stalls, cafe food, sausage sizzle, cake stalls and fairy floss plus you might also get a glimpse of Santa as he makes his way through the crowds.

There's also a treasure hunt to take part in as you wind your way through the stalls on the day as well as a raffle with a range of great prizes from many businesses on the strip.

All the usual stores will be open including Southside Antiques, Handmade High Street, Ace Comics and Vintage Revival. You'll also be able to sit for a coffee and breakfast or lunch at one of the great cafes; Groove Cafe, Dudley Street Espresso and Bennies.

You can usually find a huge range of bargains on the tables which each store has out the front of their business. There are usually great deals on vintage pieces at the antique centre and loads of great handmade shopping with local artists and community members.

You can stock up on cakes and treats ready for the silly season or just to take home and feast on in the afternoon. Make sure you get there early as they usually sell out quickly. There are usually treats for sale which are sold for donations for Annerley Community Plus with funds going directly back into the community.

If you make it to just one of the many Brisbane community fairs this year, make it this one. There is so much heart in this suburb as locals work hard to make Annerley awesome again.
