HUNTERS, collectors and scavengers looking to score a bargain will converge on Yamba this weekend for the Quota Antiques and Collectibles Fair.

The event brings together antique dealers, traders, valuers and collectors and is in its third year, with big crowds expected.

Spokeswoman for Quota International of Lower Clarence Suzanne Monin said there would be more than 20 stallholders, local and from outside the region.

There will also be some interesting displays.

"We're very excited to have Geoff Mackenzie from Grafton to show off his collection of diecast model trucks, cars and tractors," she said.

A model train display featuring handcrafted scenes from the lower Clarence will also be on display.

While these displays aren't for sale, Ms Monin said there would be plenty of collectibles that would be - everything from antique sewing machines, jewellery, glassware, vintage clothes, hats, lace, cups and saucers, coins, stamps, and more.

If you have items to sell, or perhaps you've been wondering how much Grandma's old ring is worth, a qualified jewellery appraiser will be available to assist, for a small fee.

Money raised will go to buy equipment for Yamba's new Jim Agnew OAM Health Centre in Yamba, to support families with hearing and speech difficulties.

ANTIQUE FAIR

  • WHEN: Saturday and Sunday, 9am to 3pm.
  • WHERE: Yamba Bowling Club Auditorium.
