YOU just never know what you might find at Alstonville this weekend.
The Rotary Club of Alstonville's third annual Antiques and Collectables Fair is to be held at the Alstonville Leisure and Entertainment Centre on Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20.
Money raised at the fair will go back to the community through Rotary projects.
Organiser Geoff Alexander said there were a record 40 dealers at this weekend's fair.
"You can become lost in nostalgia as you walk among thousands of interesting antiques, unique books, gorgeous collectables and magnificent jewellery from all over the world, brought to you by reputable NSW and interstate dealers," he said.
"You will discover toys and dolls from your childhood, oil lamps and figurines that you admired in your grandparents' home, and tools that transformed Australia from a penal colony into a thriving economy."
There will be two wooden farm dioramas carved from Australian red cedar and beech by Lismore man Graeme Ahearn for sale.
Mr Ahearn donated the dioramas to the Rotary Club of Lismore West, and the Rotarians from that club saw the fair as a great way of selling them for charity. A percentage of funds raised by the sale of the dioramas will go to the Fred Hollows Foundation.
The fair is open from 9am to 4.30pm on Saturday, and 10am to 3pm on Sunday. Entry is $5. Enquiries: 0411 952 356.
