Automobilia, spare parts, books, and collectables are among the abundance of goods which can be found at the Strathalbyn Swap Meet, to be held on Sunday, October 15.

Now in its 34th year, the swap meet is organised by the Historic Motor Vehicles Club which covers the Fleurieu Peninsula.

The club was first started in 1970 by a group of motoring enthusiasts who first met in Willunga.

It caters for motoring enthusiasts of all ages and passions, with a variety of goodies to be discovered amongst the many stalls set up on the day.

As part of the event, there is a show and shine, a parts pick-up services, and a PA available for advertising parts for sale or parts wanted.

“Come along and see what a swap meet is all about,” committee member Mike Davis said.

“You may even find some treasures to purchase.”

The swap meet will be held at the Strathalbyn Harness Racing Club on Milne Road.

There is a selection of undercover sites which will be housed in the large green shed, normally used as horse stalls.

Gates open at 5.30am for sellers and 6.30am for buyers.

Site fees for sellers are $15 which includes entry for two people. Buyer’s admission is $5 with children free.

Sellers are able to camp overnight on site for an extra cost of $5.

Car parking is free in the centre of the complex for buyers and street parking is also available.

Catering is organised by the members of the Strathalbyn Rotary Club.
