Its fair to say old means valuable

NO DOUBT lingers in Allan Lawson’s mind – the Fraser Coast Antique and Collectables Fair will be back.

“For the first one in a new area, it was certainly the most successful we’ve held in a long time,” Mr Lawson, the organiser, said.

“It well exceeded our expectations – there was a consistent flow of customers and just about everyone left with something.”

Collectors and dealers from across Queensland travelled to Maryborough Park to sell everything from rare bottles, antique furniture, vintage knick-knacks to old English china Saturday and yesterday.

Residents were also invited to bring along family heirlooms to be assessed by a valuer free of charge.

Mr Lawson said he hoped to pencil in the event for mid-June and mid-October next year.

“We had a lot of requests to run another show so we’re scheduled to return next year,” he said.

“We’d just like to thank the local people for their support.”
