In a first for Fairhaven Services, this year’s Autumn Fayre charity fundraiser will include an antiques and collectables auction. 

The Autumn Fayre event on Saturday 6 May will also feature an eclectic mix of 40+ stalls, music and entertainment, great food, activities for the kids –  hoopla, tootie toss, photo booth, balloon bust, kissing booth, knock ’em down – and more.

The inaugural antiques and collectables auction will run from 12pm-1pm.

Treasures up for auction include a rare J Lebegue & Co Terrestrial Globe, circa early 1900s (pictured), a first edition of Ginger & Pickles by Beatrix Potter, a range of Australiana, books, crockery and a late 19th century wooden work box.

The auction will attract people interested in collectables and antiques, bargain hunters and those who want to help people living with disability.

Fairhaven’s resident antiques and collectables appraiser, Mitch Gordon, said “At our recent Spring Market when we first opened the antiques and collectables room it attracted huge crowds. This time there will be a wider range of treasures for people to discover.

“We have almost thirty lots for auction at the Autumn Fayre. Each piece is unique. We had terrific fun collecting for the auction over the last few months, and I’m so thrilled to be offering such a diverse selection at our first auction.”

Remote bidding will be available up until 4pm on Friday 5th May 2017.

CEO Monique Cardon said:

“Fairhaven Services has a proud history of supporting people living with disability in the community for over 50 years. But what people might not know is that our Vintage Fair precinct at Point Clare offers an op shop, upcycled soft furnishings and jewellery, books, furniture – and a café! It’s a great place to come and have a browse, relax with a coffee and to feel good about helping our charity to do good work.”

The Autumn Fayre historically attracts over 1,500 people to the Point Clare site at 209 Brisbane Water Drive.

Come along on Saturday 6 May from 9am-2pm and enjoy a fun relaxing day for all the family.
