Notice anything different?
Fairhaven Shopping Village was formerly known as Vintage Fair. When Fairhaven rebranded, we saw an opportunity to create a stronger connection between the op shop’s primary objective of charity fundraising and the heart of our cause in which all proceeds are reinvested in; providing innovative supports, services and opportunities for people who live with disability right here on the Central Coast.
