Fairhaven Services’ Erina store, Vintage Fair, has celebrated six months of raising vital funds to support local people living with disability.

Since it opened in April, the store has welcomed tens of thousands of customers though its doors and held a number of special events, including an Antiques Roadshow in August and an Antiques and Collectables Sale in October.

Staff and volunteers celebrate the six month milestone at Erina Fair.

The store sells a wide variety of antiques and collectables, pre-loved clothing and books, and Fairhaven’s own ReCreate brand of gifts and homewares, created by the charity’s supported employees.

Mitchell Gordon, Store Supervisor, said: “I would like to say a big thank you to our volunteers, loyal customers and Lendlease who have supported the store over the past six months. Thanks to your generous donations and support Fairhaven Services is able to advocate for people with disability and create meaningful employment opportunities.

“We are hoping that the people of the Central Coast will continue to support us and we welcome the donation of saleable items via our Vintage Fair Shopping Village at Point Clare.”

Monique Cardon, CEO said, “We are so thankful for the generosity of Lendlease Erina Fair for making this possible.

We are all about working sustainably and we love creating new homewares from donated items. The store makes it possible for us to invest in the circular economy, where we waste less and recreate beautiful things that would otherwise be destined for landfill. And judging from our sales, the public love it too!”

Vintage Fair Erina is open seven days a week and located opposite Strandbags at Erina Fair.
