For the first time since 2019, the Moose Jaw Antiques and Collectibles Show will be taking place at the Exhibition Grounds.

The event is taking place March 17th and 18th at the Convention Centre. It's put on by the Sukanen Ship Pioneer Village and Museum, and serves as a major fundraiser for the organization.

Garry Davis is a member of the Board of Directors and serves in the position of secretary.

"We have some people bringing records. Some bringing coins. We have a gentleman that comes every year, who's been here for more than 40 years, who has a beautiful selection of dinky toys and Meccano stuff. We have another vendor selling Meccano items this year. We never quite know what the vendors are going to bring but there's always a wide variety."

Davis said the event started over 40 years ago as a car parts swap meet, adding there is still a component of that involved today.

As of Thursday, organizers had sold over 150 tables, with a few still available. Davis notes they are hoping to see some new vendors take part this year who might bring in some different items for people to see.

The event attracts visitors from across Western Canada, with one of the vendors coming from as far away as Victoria, BC.

"No matter what age you are, you'll see something there that you had as a kid or you remember your mother had hanging on the wall in the kitchen. It's almost like a walk down memory lane for people of almost any age," added Davis.

The Moose Jaw Antiques and Collectibles Show runs from 12 pm to 8 pm on Friday, March 17th, and from 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday, March 18th.

Admission is $6. Children 15 and under are free (when accompanied by an adult).
