Retro returns this month

1 October, 2014

Old Bus Depot Markets Theme Events - Retro Depot October 2014. MG Car ClubRetro has well and truly made a return. And this month sees the return of retro at our markets for the final time in 2014 with our Retro Depot in October event on Sunday 12 October. This theme day is a celebration of all things retro cool with fashion, home wares, furniture, jewellery and accessories.

Local collector, Irena McKillop from Ritzy Bits, has been collecting for our Retro Depot event for many months and will be onsite with stacks of cool items such as modernist Scandinavian furniture from the 1960s including iconic Australia Parker, Tessa and Chiswell; a Jens Quistgaard coffee table and Danish arm chairs; original Australian Hermannsberg watercolours; a collection of retro atomic starburst clocks and 1950’s quintessential occasional furniture and kitchenware.

Russell Brooks is a specialist collector who will also be at Retro Depot with a great selection of original 1950s and 60s ceramics. Russell says “Retro or mid-century style has made a huge comeback in decorating the younger generation’s living space and good design from 50+ years ago is highly sought after.”

As an extra special treat for market-goers, the MG Car Club Rally, MG TYme, will also be making an appearance at Retro Depot in October. Around 60-70 MGs ranging in age from the mid 1930s up to 1955 will be coming from across Australia and will be on display in markets’ car park and courtyard. These fabulous vintage cars will be on display from 10am until around 11.30am.

See you there!
