Further along there was a good selection of new Biante, etc. That increased the weight of the backpack and lightened the wallet by several hundred dollars.
And on we went. The diecast and kitset modeller was well looked after with kits of all sorts — ships, planes, cars, trucks, motorcycles — and plenty of diecast to suit the collector of old and new items. Finally we resurfaced in the open air where the temperature was similar to that indoors — hot and a stifling 41 degrees! Next stop was the Motorcycle Display hall where I was overjoyed to find they had several Arial motorcycles including one just like my first motorbike — an Arial cc single banger.

The hall contained a representative selection of British, European and American bikes in all sizes, some going back to the very early years. I sipped the coffee as we walked around the outside stalls checking out the many varied and interesting items. I was just blown away by the sheer size of the meet and the age and quantity of items on sale. Next stop was the book halls — everything from ancient magazines to motoring books and bibles.
Some were faithfully restored and others were in "original condition". Also on display here were posters of all sorts, tin signs, cardboard advertising signs, car number plates plus the usual plethora of reproduction items, some of which had been "weathered" to make them look older than they really were. The it was outside and into the animal holding pens where enterprising stall holders were using every available piece of shading and shelter to protect their items from the intense sun.
One thing that struck me was that no matter what a particular stall might be concentrating on there were always toys of one sort or another included on the or under the table — broken dolls, games, trains, diecast and pedal cars were everywhere! It was out here I lucked upon an original Streamlux bus sames size as Fun Ho! Another thing that caught my eye were the replica pedalcars that were on display and for sale on some stalls.
The next Bendigo Swap is this coming Saturday and Sunday 17-18 November 2018
After wandering around hundreds of outside stalls we decided some respite from the sun was in order so we popped into the Pedal Car Display. These were arranged in tiers inside an animal shelter with 5 foot high barriers to prevent people getting too close. This made taking clear photos difficult but I managed to get few shots of the various types of pedal car on display.
Some had been restored, some were in original, played-with condition and others were brand new.Ballarat swap feb 2018
Once again we ventured into the mid-day sun what was that about mad-dogs and Englishmen? We also took a good look at the many varied full size vehicles on display including those that were for sale. One, of many, that caught my eye was a Ford V8 Touring Sedan with a genuine 27, miles on the clock! Another was the Austin Healy and if you think some of our ambulances are getting big, check out the rescue vehicle that was parked in the complex in case of emergencies!
Eventually we made our way into the very center of the showgrounds where there must have been close to a thousand stalls. The day was getting late and in the end we only managed to get one pass down the middle three aisles. In the end I bought yet another, almost mint Dinky item from him to add to the swag in my pack.
