Hi All,
I was in Newtown today ,my favourite place to be and I saw signs up saying the Glebe Record fair is on on the 8th of April.
Its only on twice a year so if your looking for some new songs to play on that Radiogram you might want to pop in.
Im a mad Record collector and whats better than playing old Records on that Radiogram you've restored !
All the best,,Pete

I was in Newtown about that time last year and I think I walked past such a fair as it was closing up for the day. If so it was outdoors. Hope the weather improves by then!

Hi G,
Yes it is held half inside and half out. About 300 meters down Glebe point Road on the right Next too Bad Manners Cafe. Its not a bad day looking at the old Records and chatting or sitting in the Cafes.

Glebe and Newtown are my old haunts,but it has change over the last few years with the old junk shops and Art world moving farther west as the cost has pushed them out too places like the Gong or the mountains. I never stopped hanging around that area since I studied there years and years ago.
I still like it there after all these years.
So I hope the Rain stays away for the day.
Pete

Try buying a valve radio or telly at the antique shops in Newtown. You'll have to bail up a bank first.

I wonder why they are holding the record fair on a weekday. Surely they'd get more people on a Saturday. Rozelle Markets are at the weekend and are well patronised both on the Saturday and Sunday.

Before Xmas I was driving down King Street and saw the big one still open. It was more of an old furniture shop than a true antique shop but even they are in their minority now.

Anyone who is looking for true antique furniture, including the fine Victorian-era stuff, there is a shop in Manly Vale on Condamine Street and sometimes they sell radios on Ebay.

Hi Brad,

Would you know the name of the antique shop at Manly Vale? Next time I visit Sydney, I would like to see the antique items, particularly Victorian era furniture.

Manly Antique Centre - http://manlyantiquecentre.com.au/.

They had Victorian stuff, rustic collectables, Australian and American radios and some Louis XV furniture last time I was there. There was a huge polished timber and glass sideboard that I would have lived to have for displaying radios but I didn't have six grand on me at the time.

Ebay username is Kolectik I think.

Thanks Brad,

The website has provided some interesting viewing and will give the place a call to view more when I visit Sydney. Antique furniture are like vintage radios, very tempting to acquire.
