Festival of Old and Gold
WHAT’S a golden oldie but only 10 years of age?
Brunswick’s Old and Gold Festival on June 12 of course.
The township’s celebration of all things old, second-hand and recycled, turns 10 this year, and is offering a wider range of activities than ever.
“It’ll be a ripper,” declared Rob Dunn, owner of Clem’s Cargo in Tweed Street.
He has stockpiled plenty of wooden furniture and old Australiana, and said he would have seven or eight family members on site for a busy day’s trading.
About 50 households are expected to sign up for the All Town Garage Sale, decking themselves out in multi-coloured bunting to advertise their wares.
If shoppers aren’t tempted by anything there, they can check out the three second-hand fairs – in the Memorial Hall, the Catholic Church grounds and at the primary school.
Brunswick Heads potter Lucy Vanstone and artistic friends will host an arts and crafts fair at Wheel of Life Studios behind St Thomas’ Church.
Other activities include the Australian marbles championships, recycled craft for kids, historical displays and a self-guided historical walking tour of the town,
Registrations for the garage sale close on May 31.
