You'll find a little bit of everything at the annual Bendigo Collectables Fair.
Staged by the Bendigo Coin & Collectables Club, this event brings together dyed-in-the-wool collectors and inquisitive browsers to sift through a mind-boggling array of coins, banknotes, stamps, swap cards, militaria & medallions, postcards, comics, pottery, china & glassware and even the odd gold nugget or two.
An iconic old sign .....
..... or something for the garden.
The event is held indoors in a friendly, heated environment with wheelchair access and ample off-street parking. Lucky door prizes are drawn every half-hour throughout the day and free collectors packs are provided to children who attend with an adult.
With its wealth of goldfields history & heritage, Bendigo is well placed as a source of quality collectables and there's bound to be something for everyone at the 2017 event, running for the first time this year at its new venue, the Bendigo Exhibition Centre, and attracting buyers and sellers from right across Victoria.
