Collectors and vendors will fill the Gatton Shire Hall for a two-day event on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 April.

With sellers from all over Australia gathering to sell thousands of unique antique and vintage collectables, this will be a special opportunity to find showcase pieces for your home or to purchase unique gifts for friends and family.

Sellers will be selling items like antique jewellery, gold, silver, coins, stamps, vintage toys, vintage homewares, dolls and more.

Whether it’s a trip down memory lane you’re looking for, or something for your collection, you will be sure to find it here.

Aussie Fairs Team event promoter Kimberley Day said free appraisals were a popular part of the fair.

“We have someone there who does free appraisals, so if you have something that was left to you or a vintage antique item and you want to know what it’s worth, we have someone who does that,” she said.

Kimberley said the fair appealed to older generations wanting to relive the past, and to younger generations interested in upcycling and buying second-hand.

“I really love vintage, you walk in and there’s bargains and there’s things that are a bit more expensive,” she said.

“They’re amazing things that you might not have seen for say 30 years, and they just randomly pop up, one of the vendors might have something that’s rare or you’ve never seen before, or perhaps your grandparents had it back in the day.”

The event is held indoors, so it makes for a fantastic family-friendly outing.

Take a trip back in time, soak up the atmosphere of years gone by, and surround yourselves with people who have a passion for the past.

The Gatton Antique and Collectable Fair is a two-day event at the Gatton Shire Hall, 52 North St, and will be open to the public from 9am to 4pm on the Saturday 13 April and 9am to 2pm on Sunday 14 April.

Admission is $8, and children under 14 years enter for free.
