St Peter's Book Sale and Fair

The annual St Peter's Book Sale & Fair is so big, it will be running for not just one day, but an entire weekend. Swing past Gisborne Street, East Melbourne on Saturday 10th or Sunday 11th September to stock up on your spring and summer reading collection, and enjoy all the fun of this community fair.

A peaceful space in the bustling inner-city, the charming and historic St Peter's church is a lovely backdrop for a classic book sale and fair - and organisers don't think readers will be disappointed. There will be a sizeable range of books to discover, from rare and fine publications to contemporary fiction and non-fiction, children's books and more.

But the fun doesn't start and end with books. There will be a touch of olde-world charm about the St Peter's Fair with traditional market wares to browse through too. Discover vintage clothing, 'estate' jewellery, collectables, vinyl, memorabilia, CDs and even DVDs.

Plus, who doesn't love a classic white elephant (aka trash'n'treasure) stall? That's usually my favourite and it simply can't be ignored - along with toys to keep the kids happy, handicrafts and more.

And just like any good fair should, there'll be tasty treats to satisfy every sweet and savoury craving. We're talking fairy floss to barista made coffee along with some very mouthwatering surprises.

The St Peter's Book Sale & Fair is being held at 15 Gisborne Street, East Melbourne on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September from 9am to 2pm. Entry to the fair is free!
