About 1200 people flocked to the sixth annual Manilla Antiques and Collectors Fair at the long weekend.
Collectors scouting for a bargain joined kids and parents just keen to browse or admire the array of colourful pieces on display.
Former TV personality Gordon Brown, of ABC Collectors fame, was once again on hand to appraise more than 130 fair-goers’ prized wares.
The most astonishing piece valued was that of a watercolour painting by 19th-century Guernsey artist Paul Jacob Naftel, which Mr Brown estimated to be worth a whopping $15,000.
“The owners were aware he was a famous artist, but weren’t real sure on pricing,” event organiser Jerod Sutherland said.
Mr Sutherland said he was “very, very happy” with the number of attendees.
“I was really surprised,” he said.
“We had people come from as far away as Tasmania, central Queensland and a couple of South Australian visitors.”
Proceeds raised at the event will go to the NSW Volunteer Rescue Association.
