You've heard the expression 'one man's trash is another man's treasure' and never a truer word has been spoken when it comes to Recyclerama Antique and Collectable Fair. Recyclerama's objective is to reduce the waste footprint on our planet. By recycling our treasures and keeping them in circulation for others to enjoy, can, not only generate income but also ensure that there is no need for an additional item to be manufactured. It's cheaper, it's greener and is definitely more special - it's called 'doing our bit' to save our planet!
Inside the Main and Exhibition pavilions at the Maleny Showgrounds, you will find the Antiques, Vintage and Collectables Fair, with the main focus on Antiques and Collectables. You might find that some of the one hundred and twenty stalls are families clearing out their antiques and at other stalls there might be collectors or dealers with special Antiques for sale.

Absolutely everything vintage and collectable is to be found at Recyclerama's pre-Christmas event - from collectable cars, clothing, model planes, books, vintage jewellery, paintings and even old 1950's fruit box labels. You will need plenty of time to browse, so make sure you arrive early.
Huge Monster Carboot Sale
Surrounding the Antique and Collectable pavilions in the Maleny showgrounds, are the Carboot and garage sale style stalls, where you will more than likely also discover other hidden treasure troves of Antiques and Collectables. This really is a humungous treasure hunt (who doesn't love a treasure hunt?) with something for everyone and with every item being recycled, will surely make a difference to help diminish our waste footprint.

ATM onsite (for those like me who always forget to take cash)
Cent Auction draws for $2 with three draws of ten prizes each at 9am, 11am and 1pm
Factices - okay, I had to look this one up, thanks to Ret_on_the_Net - the definition of Factice is 'fake'! But, to be more precise, a factice is a bottle (generally perfume bottles) made for the purpose of display and not for general sale. It is considered to be a 'dummy' instead of the real thing. I definitely learn something new every day!
Garagenalia - yep, people there is such a word! Garagenalia is serious business, with petrol bowsers being on top of garagenalia collectors' shopping lists
Kitchenalia - another new word for me! Early cooking utensils etc are sought-after items for kitchenalia shoppers
