A MIX of locals and visitors embraced yesterday’s Rubble and Riches Fair.
Thirty-two sites made up the first-time market at Lake Pertobe with organisers happy with the response from the community.
Shoppers were treated to fudge, antiques, bottles and second-hand clothes.
Friends Amity Pope, of Camperdown, and Courtney Mathew, of Terang, raided their wardrobes and sold clothes and some accessories at the market.
“It was good, we made a bit of money,” Miss Pope said.
“We just went through our wardrobes and found a bit of stuff.
“Courtney had always thought that we should do a market.
“We might now do the Friday night market as well.”
Organisers Kerry Lee and Dianne Brown said the fair was complemented by the vintage car show next door and they hoped it would become an annual event.
“The weather was on our side,” Ms Brown said
“There were a lot of different people coming through, and a lot of locals too.
“It’s something we want to grow and we had to start somewhere.”
