Antiques weekend is successful

THE second annual Fernvale Country Antique and Collectable Fair brought a crowd to town on Saturday with each person looking for that special something for their collection.

Event organiser Sue Ibbotson said the fair displayed a wide range of porcelain, glass, jewellery, linen, militaria, boys toys and other collectables and antiques.


“This year's event was fabulous with a lot more people than last year,” Mrs Ibbotson said.

“There were more parcels walking through the door as well and the dealers were very pleased.

“A lot of them have been begging me to let them keep their spots for next year.”

Mrs Ibbotson said antique dealers came from all over south-east Queensland.

“We had a lot of people from Ipswich and Toowoomba and Brisbane that had the usual porcelain, glass and jewellery, but there were a few unusual items,” she said.

“There were cowbells and all sorts of different things.

“We had some retro stuff because we do vintage fashion fairs.

“I had a lot of calls before the event asking what sort of antiques were there which was a little unusual.”

“There were a lot of first timers that came to the fair.”
