Annual collectibles fair to showcase treasures
FOR some people there's nothing more fun than putting together a collection of their favourite things be it Teddy's, tea cups or memorabilia from their favourite television show.
There is a place for people like that (and let's face it most people have a collection of some kind) - it's the Coffs Harbour Collectors Club.
The club meets monthly and every year in May they hold their annual collectors fair - an event already in the planning according to club president Terrie Beckhouse.
"The Club always welcomes new members and will greatly appreciate extra helpers for the Annual Fair," Terrie said.
"The popular two-day Collectors Fair is the main function and focus of club. This event offers fantastic exhibitions of private collections for the public to enjoy as well as attracting lots of stall holders from far afield to entice us with their unusual wares. All funds raised from the Fair benefits local charities."
Then Club which meets monthly at their "TARDIS" at the Coffs harbour Showgrounds.
"It is an opportunity to meet like minded people, discuss your own collection and enjoy the array of members' collections which include radios, clocks, venetian glass, buttons, brooches, miniature shoes, dolls, teddys, egg cups, lamps, railway memorabilia, cranberry glass, Olympic memorabilia and bottles," Terrie explained.
This year's event 25 & 26 May, will mark the 23rd Annual Collectors Fair in Coffs Harbour and the members are already excited and planning for this event.
