Vintage awesomeness ...


Now in its 30th year, the very popular Collectorama Fair, runs four times a year and because in 2021 we still have a 'bug proviso' to contend with, will hopefully still kick off in March and continue without any further 'misadventure' in May, September and November.

With heaps of treasure to browse and lovingly pore over, plus plenty of sizzling bargains, the gigantic Collectorama Fair's Convenors, Tom and Laurie Wall are renowned for having a solid reputation for curating a massively eclectic fair, full of vintage awesomeness.

Collectorama Fair at the Nambour Showgrounds is a not-to-be-missed Saturday day trip to bookmark, if not for shopping, just to step into and enjoy the friendly world of collectors, in an atmosphere of quality made memorabilia from bygone eras.

Conveners Tom and Laurie Wall have successfully kept antique and vintage culture alive and well by crafting a monumental experience for all collectors. It really is a case of: one person's trash, is another person's treasure! The recycling of precious souvenirs and treasures all aid in reducing our ecological footprint on planet earth, which adds to the appeal of a trip to the Collectorama Fair in Nambour.
