What goes around comes around and Saturday in Whangārei provided lots of pickings for hunters and collectors looking for the good old stuff. Vinyl records were the main drawcard but there was plenty of other music media and memorabilia available at the Whangārei Record Collectors' Fair at Oneonesix. This was the third such event Steve Parrish, from Indigo Records, has organised in the city. The event was on the same day as International Record Store Day. Meanwhile, there were also fine pickings at the Antique and Collectors Fair at Forum North which took place on Saturday and yesterday. Northern Advocate photographer John Stone went along to both.
