So much treasure, so much fun - explore the three fairs, each packed with over 25 stalls or the two book fairs. Be sure to follow the trail of nine secondhand and op shops around the town for special old and gold bargains. Please note the starting times for the fairs - no earlier please!
The Northern Star Collectables Fair 8.30-3 Memorial Hall in Fingal St
Ye Olde Church Garden Fair 8.30-3 Catholic Church in Tweed St
School Bric-a-Brac & Toy Fair 8.30-3 BH School in Fingal St
A limited number of stalls are now available at the three fairs. Stall bookings are being taken now.
Rangers will be out policing any unauthorised stalls on the council verges or parks, and fines will be issued, so please don't even think about breaking the rules and setting up outside the organised fairs. So don't leave your booking to the last minute. If you miss out on a stall, come and enjoy the fun instead.
Hundreds of good read novels and other books will be on sale at the Old & Gold. The Library Book Fair will be on from 9am to noon, but not if it's raining. The Visitor Centre Bookfair will be on all day at 7 Park St from 9am to 3pm. regardless of the weather - it's a fundraiser for the self-funded Visitor Centre.
Secondhand Rose Emporium is having a closing down sale, so you should be sure to check out the bargains at 8 Park St. Beautiful old wares, furniture and gorgeous collectables will be going out the door to make way for a new store in July.
Brunswick Heads is blessed with 7 secondhand shops and 3 op shops - all are in Tweed St, Fingal St and Park St and all within walking distance of each other. Each of the secondhand shops offers something different - retro, vintage, sahhpy chic, beautiful old furniture, glassware, and interesting old wares.
Visitors are encouraged to support these shops as they are the backbone of the Old & Gold Festival - the money you exchange for your treasure stays in the town and keeps the local ecomony ticking! This year's trail includes:
