Of all the antique fairs held across Australia, there is one which is an absolute 'must' for dealers, stall holders, collectors and browsers alike and that's the Fryerstown Antique Fair.
It started in 1975 to raise money for the Hall where it is held and its popularity has increased every year since. All proceeds go towards the Hall's upkeep and a variety of other community groups also benefit from the fair.
Still held in and around the historic Fryerstown Hall, you will find fine antiques, Australiana, hobby collectables, furniture, old kitchenware, vases, pottery, odds and ends, pieces to mend, and many more treasured items.
If antiques and collectables are your thing and you haven't yet made it to Fryerstown, then you are missing out - so give yourself a treat and visit the fair. Held over three days on a weekend near Australia Day.
For several years local ceramicist David Lyons has exhibited his unique Australiana creations and will do so again. These will include figurines of Lizards, Birds, and koalas as well as hand decorated platters and vases. Fryerstown is in Central Victoria 11km south east of Castlemaine.
Try not to miss it. For more information, contact Mrs Pat Cubeta (still organising the fair since the first one was held) on the phone number above.
Note: A hat, sunscreen and comfortable shoes are recommended.
