FROM quirky collectables to attractive antiques, the York Antique and Collectors Fair promises to have something for even the fussiest antiquarian or hobby hoarder.
The York Town Hall will host a return of the big event over the April 7-9 Easter long weekend.
The fair will feature everything in antiques, from jewellery and furniture, to collectables, coins, glassware, china, silver and other precious metals.
Matt Donelly, of Alan Donelly and Co, from the West TV program Talking Treasures, will offer free valuations on the Saturday from noon to 4pm.
Event organiser Tanya Richardson said it was a great opportunity to see what treasured family heirlooms were worth.
“Last year there were a couple of big surprises,” she said.
“One person in particular had a Chinese dragon picture drawn on butcher paper and in a shoddy frame that he paid about $20 for at a market.
“But then Alan Donnelly and a co-valuer noticed a special stamp in the corner of the picture and estimated it to be worth about $3500.”
The fair has been expanded this year to include markets and an animal farm in Peace Park.
Stallholders are expected to come from as far Albany, Paraburdoo and Tasmania.
