People can take a walk down memory lane and spend this weekend among beautiful antiques at the Cobram Historical Society’s 33rd Annual Antique and Collectables Fair.

The fair, which usually attracts between 600 and 800 people across the weekend, will bring a variety of antique and historical pieces of furniture, accessories, decorative items, jewellery and collectables together under the same roof.

This year, six new stall holders will display their unique wares, including two from Sydney, and some from Adelaide, Gippsland and Melbourne.

After three decades of increasing popularity, organiser and society president Pat Kerr said the fair was now recognised as one of the best in Victoria.

‘‘It is one of the few fairs of its kind that is run by a not-for-profit group,’’ Mrs Kerr said.

‘‘This year, we’ve got one stall holder who has lovely kitchen items — it’s everything your mother would have had in her kitchen — and it looks fantastic,’’ she said.

‘‘Then we’ve got jewellery, the music box which has interchangeable cobs and I think that’s pretty rare; there’s furniture, including beautiful French and English antique pieces.

‘‘People will be able to see things they don’t normally see every day.

‘‘It’s something you wouldn’t see in a shop in Cobram, it’s something you would have to go to a specialist outlet to see.’’

■The 33rd Annual Antique and Collectables Fair will be held on Saturday, June 17 from 10am to 5pm and Sunday, June 18 from 10am to 4pm at the Cobram Civic Centre.
