SEMAPHORE RECORD FAIR
The fifteenth Semaphore Record Fair will take place on Monday the 1st of October 2018.
This event typically features 35 local traders with 60 tables of stock for sale, including records, CDs, music books & magazines, DVDs, memorabilia and more, both new & secondhand.
It takes place at St Bede’s Hall, 200 Military Road, Semaphore (approx 20 metres from the intersection of Semaphore & Military Roads). Bus stop 44 is right outside the hall. Entry for the public is FREE. 9 am to 4 pm.
Its organised by Vic Flierl (Mr V Music), who can be contacted on 0400 223 454 or email@example.com.
The October record fairs are held in conjunction with the Semaphore Music Festival, which has been held annually since 2005 on the October Labour Day Long Weekend – www.semaphoremusicfestival.com .
The April record fairs are held on Easter Monday.
ADELAIDE SECONDHAND BOOKSELLERS FAIR
The fourth of these events will take place on Sunday the 22nd of July 2018, at the Fullarton Park Community Centre, on the corner of Fullarton Road and Fisher Street. Over 20 local secondhand booksellers will have 50 tables of stock, with quality books for all tastes and budgets on offer. FREE entry, 10 am to 3 pm, with ample free parking. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The seventh Music Palooza Record, CD & DVD Sale will be held on the weekend of the 11th & 12th of August 2018, at The Big Blue Shed, 230 Flinders Street in the city. This is the biggest secondhand music event in Adelaide, for which some of Australia’s biggest music sellers made a special journey to participate. As the most prestigious secondhand music sale in South Australia all available tables are usually hired by traders, so late bookings can result in disappointment.
More than 50 interstate & local sellers usually participate, with 110 tables of stock – from bargains to collectables, featuring music in all styles – including records, CDs, music books & magazines, DVDs, memorabilia and more.
$5 admission – which covers both days – and FREE for children under 12 accompanied by an adult.
10 am to 5 pm both days.
