Media Release – Thursday 26 March 2015
This Easter Sunday, forget hunting for chocolate eggs at home and head to the Old Bus Depot Markets to hunt for small antiques and collectables at the special theme day, Portobello Road, on Easter Sunday, 3 April.
“This is our second Portobello Road event for 2015, but this one promises to be bigger and better as we welcome visitors to the markets to have a little fun over the Easter long weekend,” said Diane Hinds, Director of the Old Bus Depot Markets.
Portobello Road on Easter Sunday will offer loads of collectables and small antiques, an eclectic mix of quirky and interesting treasures.
“Our customers always tell us the fun of this day is in the search for that something special – that certain something you won’t find in stores. Items that tell stories and share a little about lifestyles from times gone past,” Diane continued.
Visitors can browse all kinds of items including funky lamp shades, tea cups and saucers, retro decorative art, antique jewellery, china and art glass, silver, linens and restored pieces.
Third generation antiques dealer Ian Bembrick will be travelling from Sydney with a broad range of antiques and collectables especially for Portobello Road on Easter Sunday.
Ian and his mother, a second generation antiques dealer, run their business Auchinachie Antiques and will have many historic items for sale at Portobello Road including antique sewing tools and small collectables, coins and bank notes, jewellery, collectable silverware and English porcelain.
Portobello Road on Easter Sunday will be open Sunday 3 April from 10am to 4pm. Entry is free. For more information on the Old Bus Depot Markets go to www.obdm.com.au
