Vintage Shops Open – Winter Art of Elegance Fair 2012

Posted on August 5, 2012



Sunday 12th August 2012 will see the third Art of Elegance Fair, being Winter.  In addition to the traders in the Anglican Hall corner Nightingale and Clarendon Street, Maryborough, there will be Fanny’s Flat Talbot open to visit on the way, Wear D’ja Get That? Maryborough open by request as Mandy will be at the Fair, Amaroo Antiques & Collectibles Maryborough open on the day from 10 am, and Sew What Maryborough  at the Flour Mill will be open, too.  Check the links above for any inquiries/contact details.   Tiffany Titshall from Fanny’s Flat Talbot will be doing the decorations at the Fair, which will be lovely and upcycled, and all of these traders have been part of the Fair before, so you can visit some favourites too.  Maryborough Midlands Historical Society is open on the afternoon of the day, check the link for details.  We might even learn more about the mysterious Mrs Ferber, first heard about around the time of the Summer Fair!  She was a local lady in Talbot in the late 1800’s, and would have come to the Fair for a cup of tea, and have visited all the Goldfields towns on her shopping excursions in those heady days.  More updates to come.  See you at the Fair…
