One man’s trash is one man’s treasure
Ballan Swap Meet
By Johnny Orchard

With only two weeks between the Ballan Vintage Vehicle & Machinery Club
(BVVMC) rally at the Ballan Racecourse, the annual Swap Meet was also
conducted at the venue. Patrons were greeted with great weather, with the
previous night’s dew soaked in to the ground, minimising the amount of
dust floating in the air.
Now, with websites like Ebay and Gumtree, people are realising that if they
have any pieces of ‘gold’, that they’ll get a better dollar for it by advertising it
to the world, rather than local communities. The bargain is finding that little
something that you want or need amongst all the items that sellers are trying
to sell not realising its value to someone; this means getting there early and
having a keen eye to spot that piece of ‘treasure’.
The huge Ballarat swap meet was held only a week prior to the Ballan event
and I find the Ballarat market is just too much for me, it is tiring to get around,
the Ballan event is a lot quicker and easier to get around; being easier to
scrutinise each of the vendors’ sites. The Ballan market was, I guess, the size
of two footy-ovals; easy to get around in the morning (with time for me to get
home and mow the lawn in the arvo).
A nice touch for the traders is the ladies of the BVVMC mounted a couple of 7am and things are starting to heat-up.
insulated tubs to a hand-trolley and circulated the stalls loaded with bread,
fried onions & sausages for the lone vendors unable to leave their stall to
purchase food from the canteen; great idea.
I guess the fact that the event is run by a vintage machinery club it is not
surprising that the stalls were predominantly stocked with automotive
items, although there was still an array of classic and vintage toys along with
household goods.
Only $5 to get in and easy parking close to the entry-gate; a much easier day
than trying to find ‘gold’ in endless avenues at a larger venue at Ballarat.
Watch out for it next year; well worth a look.
