Thousands of collectors and sellers from all parts of Australia will converge on Byron Bay this weekend for the second annual Mega Antique Retro Fair at the Cavanbah Sports Centre.

In an interesting twist, the fair will also be encouraging collectors to donate their less valuable old stuff to the needy via online donations platform GIVIT Australia.

The unique concept of GIVIT is that it allows donors to match what they have to give with specific people in need in their area.

For the slightly more well heeled, the fair will offer a range of heritage retro and deco items to add to their collection or to make a start in this popular hobby or to furnish their home.

Everything from old toys and china to rare bottles, coins, books, jewellery plus many quirky collectables will provide a window into our past.

A feature of the fair will be a huge display of Australian and international vintage and custom jewellery, including a range of rare compacts.

It will also offer children an opportunity to learn more about Australia’s early pioneering days.

The fair will open to the public from 8am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday, January 14 & 15, 8am to 1pm. Admission $8 Children Under 14 years Free.

The Fair benefits GIVIT Australia.
