Visitors flock to fair
VISITORS to Maryborough's Showground pavilion could have sworn they were extras in an episode of Antiques Roadshow over the weekend, as the Fraser Coast Antiques and Collectables Fair opened its doors.
Antique dealers from far and wide descended on the showgrounds for this year's event, with objects of all shapes and sizes up for grabs, for the right price.
Intricate antique jewellery and collectable toys were on show for the two-day event, along with a wide range of furniture, cameras, books, porcelain pieces and knick-knacks.
Some of the unique items at this year's fair included a rare Huon Pine lamp, and a 1930's British gold necklace.
Antique dealer Anita Pitchag said the beautiful old necklace had been traced back to the 1930s and was made from 15 carat gold.
"It's one-of-a-kind because it's been hand-made with jewels in it," Ms Pitchag said.
"It's definitely a unique piece."
