Bruns Old and Gold Festival to shine this weekend
STAFF at the Fabulous Mrs Fox in Brunswick Heads have ramped up the bling ready for this weekend's Old and Gold Festival.
The award-winning festival of all that is second hand starts at 8am on Saturday and organisers are urging shoppers to get their bargain-hunting shoes on and join the search for treasure.
"We love Old and Gold, it's the best day of the year," said Johanna White, co-owner of Fabulous Mrs Fox, which sells new and old vintage collectibles.
"It's a day when a lot of new people discover Brunswick for the first time.
"It is a retailer's dream and we make sure we get out there on our bikes looking for that must have item."
Brunswick's much-loved all-town secondhand shopping extravaganza won the Events and Tourism Award for all of New South Wales and ACT last year.
The festival includes the All Town Garage Sales, four big collectable and secondhand fairs, monthly Brunswick Heads Community Market, horse and carriage rides, free face-painting and street entertainment.
And don't miss seeing the town's decorated window fronts, all competing to take out this year's Window Dressing Competition.
