Craft Fair & Antique Valuations for Parkinson NSW


Our Lady Queen of Peace Greystanes Parish News Story
May 2012 Craft Fair & Antique Valuations at OLQP Greystanes.

Originally published in Catholic Outlook November 2012

Our Lady Queen of Peace Greystanes Parish (OLQP) is again holding its highly popular Craft Fair and Antique Valuations event on Saturday 24 November 2012 to raise funds for Parkinson NSW. This fair is held twice a year: a week before Mother's Day and in November.

The fair is organised by parish volunteers and features 35 stalls from all over Sydney, selling quality Christmas decorations and gifts, baby wear, homemade décor, kitchen goods, edible treats, scarves and bags, jewellery, potted plants and much more.

One of the stallholders is professional photographer offering photos with Santa. Why not avoid the queues at the shops and have your photo taken with Santa at the fair?

A unique drawcard is the professional Antique Valuations. Available from 9am, everyone is encouraged to bring along special treasures or family heirlooms and paintings to see how much they are worth.

Instead of bringing large paintings with you, the valuation can be done from a photo of the painting and the artist’s signature. Each valuation costs $5.

Profits from the fair will be donated to Parkinson NSW, which aims to provide information, counselling and support to people living with Parkinson's disease, their partners, carers and families.

The donation will be made in the memory of OLQP's past parish priest Fr Gerald Iverson, who suffer from this disease and passed away in February this year.

This is a great social day out for the whole family with traditional Devonshire teas and a fantastic sausage sizzle serving breakfast and lunch from 8am.

The fair is open from 8am-2pm at Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish, Camilleri Hall, 198 Old Prospect Road, Greystanes.
