Surprises intrigue at swap meet

IDEAL weather and the promise of fascinating finds lured an enthusiastic crowd to the Swap Day at the Korumburra Showgrounds on Sunday.

The event was the 33rd swap day held by the South Gippsland Branch of the Gippsland Historical Automobile Club.

This year’s event attracted plenty of stall holders and bargain hunters, with car parts, tools, golf clubs, toys and plants among the many items offered.

People restoring vehicles were able to find those hard to source parts to enable projects to be closer to completion.

As well as finding a bargain, patrons were able to check out the huge vintage and classic car display, and grab a bite to eat from the Leongatha or Korumburra Lions clubs.

Funds raised from previous events have helped the car club build spectacular clubrooms at the Leongatha Recreation Reserve.
