Lifeline Book Fair

By emd - 20 April 2007 4

It’s on this weekend – 10am til 5pm Saturday, 10am til 4pm Sunday.

Having never been before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But now that I’ve been, I reckon it’s fantastic!

I got a big stack of books for $1.50 to $3 each – some absolute classics and all in good condition – and will be fighting the urge to go back tomorrow for more. They also had a rare & first editions room with some really interesting books at great prices (I resisted the urge to get an ancient-looking book on Ben Hall for $20).

Anyone want to tell us what their favourite find was?

What’s Your opinion?

I haven’t been for a few years but it sounds like it’s back to its former glory, which is good. I stopped going when the pricing got ridiculous.

Lets just say my wife picked up real market value $250 USD in 2 books for $2 each.

The last few hours on Sunday are fun too – you can fill a shopping bag for 5.00 (i think).
