One of the longest established clubs in Canada for aficionados of all things antique and collectible is the First Canadian Collectors Club. The first meeting of the club was held in 1970 with ten original founding members, each one a highly experienced collector and lover of antiques and nostalgia. The aim of this group is firstly to share a love of collecting antiques with like-minded folks and also to promote further study and research into specific items and areas of historical interest. Of course, a natural progression for this club was to have a market event, where their passion could be shared with the wider public. Therefore the First Canadian Collectors Club Show and Sale was born and still takes place twice a year.
The vendors that take part in the First Canadian Collectors Club Show and Sale are all highly experienced in the field of antiques and incredibly passionate about their own collections. What they do not know about their goods is probably not worth knowing! These market events are the perfect starting point for those just getting started in the world of collecting as there is such a gathering of experience under one roof, and all involved want to spread their passion for antiquing as far as possible. One of the goals of the club is to inspire in others a nostalgic love of all things from yester-year and this is what happens at the markets.
The First Canadian Collectors Club Show and Sale has some amazing items up for sale, carefully curated for their quality and collectibility. Toy cars and other vehicles are up for grabs, items from the automobile industry, old cameras, binoculars, vintage records and record players, jewelry, lamps, clocks, chairs and so much more. The event takes place in a huge warehouse, so it can be enjoyed at any time of year, whatever the weather.
