Visitors will delight in the detail of what’s on offer at the Kyneton Antique and Vintage Fair.

Now in its 22nd year, the fair will take over the town hall for three days at the end of this month and is the major fundraiser for the Friends of the Kyneton Museum.

Event co-ordinator Hanne Juul said everything from the exquisite to the unusual will be on sale.

“As well as our regular dealers we have been able to attract new dealers from Victoria as well as interstate to come to this year’s fair,” Ms Juul said.

“There will be a range of antiques and vintage ware from beautiful linen to antique jewellery, glassware to oriental china.”

Among the highlights will be a doll and doll house exhibition and sales of miniatures.

A valuation appraisal day will be on Saturday. A choice of fare for a light lunch, including baked goods and homemade soups will be on offer at the Rotary Club of Kyneton Country Kitchen.

All funds raised help to conserve the collection, as well as develop new projects at the town’s museum.

Opening night will be Friday, August 31 from 5-7.30pm. The event will also be open from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.

Admission is $7 adult and children accompanied by an adult are free.
